While this might not sound like the basis for a hilarious parody video, the New York Times
has done a fantastic job of capturing an exchange between the two fictional legal parties as they attempted to define the word “photocopier.”
This video is part of a series called “Verbatim,” where comedians act out ridiculous exchanges and was unveiled during the Times Video department’s pitch to advertisers at its NewFronts presentation last month.
Take a look:
“In 2010, Ohio’s Cuyahoga County Recorder’s office was sued for charging US$2 a page for photocopies of public documents.”
