Yesterday, the Herald Sun posted this story on their website about MTR, the company set to take over Melbourne’s public transport system in December.

The same company runs the metro in Hong Kong and London, so the tabloid decided to demonstrate the efficiency of these public transport systems using videos from YouTube. Unfortunately, in video two (now mysteriously missing) displaying the train system in Hong Kong, they have clearly posted without reviewing the footage. Five seconds into the film comes up with a message “fuck you virgin for not asking to use this video could have at least given me 5 pounds. lol”
