Ooh Shiny Another Accident

Ooh shiny, another serious motorcycle accident I thought to myself, when two authentic looking Montreal paramedics wheeled their helmeted female “victim” through the crowds of passersby on Saint Catherine Street.

Moments earlier these two “paras” were real-like pumping the female dummy’s chest meanwhile, anxious passersby briefly stopped to assess the poor young woman on the gurney condition and then realized it was all a sham.

I should have immediately realized that the whole affair was fake because it was happening in the Quartier-des-Spectacles during the 2017 Montreal Just-For-Laughs Festival, the paramedics were heading into the area from the Saint Urbain Street (East) entrance onto the Quartier, and most importantly, there was no ambulance visible anywhere.

I quickly deduced what was going on when one of the paramedics lifted the alleged victim’s left leg straight up past 90 degrees without getting any sort of audible response from the “patient”.

Moreover, I recognized one of the “paramedics” whose face appears on my image after carefully examining it at home as a comedian that I have seen on French language TV.
