Does the DMV Really Care What We Look Like?
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good Morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. You have to wonder if the guy at the department of motor vehicles took a second look at Will Carsola. When he went to get his driver's license photo in Virginia, he painted his face red. The department just snapped the picture. His friend Dave Stewart painted the top of his head black and wore buckteeth, and he got the license photo anyway. Only after they got attention on the Internet did these independent filmmakers get in trouble. And they have now been ordered by the state of Virginia to get new photos. It's MORNING EDITION.
