Vermont is an interesting place with some very interesting residents. Brigham Young and John Deere are both said to hail from this mountainous state.

But will either turn out to be quite as fascinating as Jacob Rehm?

According to WCAX News, Rehm stands accused of illegally borrowing a $500,000 tour bus and taking it for a little spin. Rehm is a former employee of the bus company and will make an appearance in the Vermont District Court on Tuesday.

However, something else will also be making a court appearance at the same time--a video entitled "The Fabulous Bus Ride," which was posted on YouTube on November 5.

It does not appear to have been made by a concerned and civic-minded passerby. No, it is alleged to have been made by Rehm.

In the notes accompanying the YouTube posting, someone whose handle is vudushuz, says: "Vermont to Connecticut in the Middle-O-the-Night :)Originally thought about heading to Pennsylvania but... anyways, stopped in Bradford for GREAT pizza at the Exit."

As you will see from the embedded piece, the video is quite a work of art, with music by Yes and some very interesting camera work.

I wonder what the judge will think of the alleged director.
