*LANGUAGE ALERT – VIEWER DISCRETION*
Recently a video was posted to twitter of a car driving around INSIDE of a mall in the Chicago area. This apparently happened just a couple of hours ago. The hashtag #Schaumburg is trending on Twitter for the city of Schaumburg Illinois. In the video below there is harsh language so please be advised. The person recording observes an SUV driving around inside the mall and he says ‘what the ‘F***’ over and over while recording.
