00:55Copy video clip URL On the streets of Los Angeles, the crew approaches a kid on a street corner who sells maps to the stars’ homes in Hollywood. Though they initially ask him for directions, the crew ends up interviewing him about his idea. On the next block, there is another kid with the same job, but he is resentful of his job, and has not seen any movie stars using the maps he sells. They see a third kid but cannot stop the car. A fourth kid, in a different location, refuses to show them a map, telling the crew that he is afraid that they will only tape it, and not pay him the money.
