Convince some friends to organise a television camera, lights and a microphone and have them follow you about for the day while you do the shopping. When you get to the part where you are supposed to pay for the goods - simply say 'but this is a tv reality program' and walk away.

       This would be an interesting stunt - the kind of stunt a *real* TV reality programme might want to film. Confusing.

       'madam, you were clocked going 100 in a 60 zone, i'm going to have to give you a ticket.'   

       'but this is a tv reality program' (drives away)

       "Mr Frost, I'm arresting you for murder..."

       "Golly gee, you have three legs, your breast is resting on a crutch and your watch is melting!"
"But this is a TV sur..."

       So I guess "The devil made me do it" is passé?

       "I don't get this idea." "But this is a TV reality program." "Oh, I get it."

"You're under arrest for bank robbery!" "<laughs> A man of your obvious acting talents ought to find better work than a TV reality program!"

       "How dare you making obscene phone calls!"
"But this is a radio reality program."
FarmerJohn, Jan 21 2005

       A: "But this is a tv reality program."   

       B: "Lemme guess, 'Cops'?" (Proceeds to introduce you to some reality.)   

       As bad as this is, I am resigned that for some unexplained reason, I am compelled to give benfrost a croissant.[+]

       Stop messing with that Halfbakery site when you're supposed to be working! But this is a reality tv program.

       //There is no reality when cameras are on//   

       I'd say, it's not the presence or activity of cameras. It's the knowledge of the presence or activity of cameras what makes reality not be so. As long as people don't know cameras are there, things remain real. Some doccumentary filmmakers (like Frederick Wiseman) hid their equipment from the object of the documentary, for things to remain real.

       Yeah, [Brau] really hit on something there. That's why the world on telly is never real, whether you're watching fiction or not. The internet isn't really real either. Real life isn't exactly.... I'm going to bed.

       Patient: "Doctor, you've got to help me! I think I'm going crazy. I just keep having these visions pop into my head. I can't tell what's real anymore."
Doctor: "I see. I would normally ask you how you feel about that, but this is a reality tv show, you understand?"

       Death: "I am here to take you from this mortal existence."   

       Man: "But this a reality series"   

       Death: "Oh... Make sure those cameras get my good side. Hi Mom!" (+)

       I loved to receive such "tv reality program" from HB users :-). We could simply record our days (surroundings, places, what we do etc.), write it to DVD and send to each other. Would be interesting, I think.
