In this amateur video footage, an irate man is seen taking a chainsaw to a parking meter. That's what we call problem-solving to the max!

Well, maybe. Due to the staginess of the clip, plus how hard we find it to believe that anybody would actually do this, we're 99% sure this video is a fake.

That being said, it's still enormously satisfying to watch. Haven't we all wanted to do something like this when being unfairly ticketed? Even if the guy's acting, I bet that felt good.

We put it to you, readers: Is this video the real McCoy or the phoniest of balonies?
