I had a student in a media production class who spoofed the ending of Se7en. He filmed it in a field near the Interstate. If he'd told me what he was going to do, I would have warned him to notify the cops first.

Instead, he had the Sheriff, City Police and Highway Patrol all show up to a report of men with guns.

Apparently, the Sheriff's deputy was cool about it. The city officer was much less friendly. But no one got arrested.
