LOL you see it done all the time on the grid as the teams get ready. IIRC Toyota had a team of mechanics forming a human shield around the back of their car and they all moved in unison as Martin Brundle tried to look around them as he did his grid walk a few races ago after the double diffuser was ruled to be ok and the teams intrduced their own versions of the controversial Brawn diffuser. Of course the irony of the video posted is if only McLaren had resorted to that minor bit of espionage in 2007 rather than just roll out a Ferrari painted black and silver we would never have had 'spygate' :D
