Some1too writes: Ok here's the scoop: During the G20 summit not too long ago footage was capture of an officer threatening to arrest a protester for blowing bubbles in their directions. In his own words "“If the bubbles touch me you`re going to be arrested for assault, do you understand me?”. The video is uploaded to youtube and an animated parody is made showing 'officer bubbles' as he's now known arresting various characters (Santa Claus, Barack Obama). The usual youtube hilarity ensues in the comments. Officer Bubbles doesn't like what he reads so he decides to sue Youtube for 1.2 million and request that they reveal the identity of the anonymous authors. I wrote a opinion piece on the subject here. The blogosphere is really burning up with this one, I'm assuming that Officer Bubbles will soon be very familiar with the Streisand effect.
