I think this is possibly a hoax. They'd have to know exactly how much each security camera could see before hauling all their shit out into the middle of the street. What if they took the time to do all that shit, and when they received the tape, they could barely be seen? Or one guy was cut off? Or "sorry, the camera was broken on that particular day".
A much easier approach would just to get your own video camera, set it up and shoot a bunch of CCTV-esque static shots of your awful band playing, and then put a bunch of noise and static filters on 'em in Final Cut. Or run them through a few generations of dubs to get static and loss. I wouldn't be surprised if that's what these guys actually did...at least in some of the shots.
