Toronto, ON (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
Caught On! Magazine is already drawing visitors by the hundreds each day to witness the funniest, stupidest, creepiest, scariest and sweetest moments caught on camera.
"Cameras are pervasive in today's society," said editor Lucy Park, explaining the popularity of the newly launched website. "On our site, criminals are caught with home and business cameras. Children and pets are caught in the most precious moments. Contractors are caught cheating homeowners."
Although the hilarity of the videos, and the general tone of the editorial coverage might seem light, "There's a big crime-solving and social responsibility aspect to this content," said the editor. "With more and more homes and businesses monitored with cameras, crimes are solved or prevented. We show some of the world's most idiotic criminals on our site—like the guy who heists a car in front of the police department, witnessed by dozens of cops."
There's also a safety aspect, with Caught On! showcasing unsafe workplaces, such as the spectacular breaking news story of the forklift operator who demolishes a warehouse in seconds.
The already popular site breaks its video candid moments and reporting into categories "that we think people will focus on," said Lucy Park, including:
- Contractors and nanny cams
- Stupid criminals
- Real or faked (challenging the visitor to guess if the video is real or fake)
- Shocking moments
- Tender moments
