LEE NELSON CREATOR PROTESTS VOLKSWAGEN AT GENEVA MOTOR SHOW

Recently, German automobile manufacturer Volkswagen has been exposed as installing software in their cars that cheat diesel emission tests, breaking the law and creating a scandal. Today, as VW presents at the Geneva Motor Show, UK comedian and Lee Nelson creator Simon Brodkin took the opportunity to protest. He dressed up as a mechanic with a box reading 'Cheat Box' and attempted to affix it to the model car; hardly subtle stuff, but it caused a bit of a flurry. You might remember Brodkin as Nelson, or more recently for dumping a suitcase of fake money on disgraced FIFA boss Sepp Blatter. Check out Brodkin's stunt below, via the Wall Street Journal:
