Kidnapping for fun and profit

I was talking about this yesterday w/ S, but didn't know the url to the story.

Well, here it is: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/2163666.stm

Found it on jwz's livejournal. Basically, some guy is offering his services in kidnapping you. You pay him, he kidnaps you, videotaping the entire thing, and then releases you after an agreed upon time. ... Yeah, that's really freaky, and really stupid. What the hell is wrong with people?

It's one thing to have paid doms and such, that's fine - it's private, it doesn't involve anyone else, and it's a controlled situation. A faked kidnapping bothers me, you're getting into dangerous waters when you pay someone to re-enact a dangerous and violent crime upon your person. What happens when someone gets hurt for real, even if it is by accident? Or what happens when people start trying to use it as a prank on their friends - even if this guy won't do it, what happens if someone else does? Jesus, this is so stupid... sometimes, people amaze me.
