Naked Badu in Dallas

By now most people have heard about a pop star stripping naked in downtown Dallas while shooting "guerrilla" video.

What most people don't know is that in order to find an audience of people to offend, it took her some work. I used to work right next to the plaza she used and would cut through it often.

Generally it is empty and abandoned. To find a time when there were some people (including the child and the offended mother), must have taken some work as I never encountered that many people in several years of cutting through the plaza.

Someone had asked me why the video could not have been shot in the middle of the night and avoided the problem. My response: heck, usually you could shoot the video in the middle of the day without any problem either.
