This video purports to show Hugh Hallman installing one of his signs in front of a Jeff DeWit sign. The video has been faked, but if you haven't put up a lot of signs, you might not catch it. See if you can watch it once and spot the trick.
Did you catch it? Did the title of this post give you the hint you needed?
Here's the screen shot of the picture that shows Hallman approaching the intersection.
Notice what he's carrying? That's right. Nothing. He doesn't have a sign in his hand and he's not carrying poles and he doesn't have pole pounder.
So in the next scene...how is he installing a sign? The answer is that he's not installing a sign HE'S TAKING A SIGN DOWN.
Once you realize that he's taking the sign down, the video makes a lot more sense. He doesn't have tools to remove the poles or cut the wire, so he's bending the poles back and forth until he can pull them out. The video then cuts to a still shot of Hallman standing on the corner appearing to admire his handy work.
But why a still shot? Why not more video? Because that still shot was taken BEFORE he started working on the sign. By placing the still shot after the video, it makes it look like he's admiring the newly-installed sign. But in reality that still shot was taken first and he's either wondering who the heck put that sign up, or he's trying to figure out how to take the sign down without any tools.
The video is an elaborate trick to make people think that Hallman is installing signs in front of DeWit signs. So how far does the trick go? My guess is that the same person who doctored the video is the same person who installed the offending Hallman sign.
