“Surveillance Camera Man” is an anonymous fellow who wanders the streets and malls of Seattle with a handheld camcorder, walking up to people and recording them — in particular, recording their reactions to being recorded. He answers their questions with bland, deadpan statements (“It’s OK, I’m just recording video”), and sometimes mentions that there are lots of other (non-human-carried) cameras recording his subjects.
