Description

Honolulu officials yesterday called on retail giant Wal-Mart to remove simulated Hawai'i driver's licenses from packaging on a comedy DVD being marketed here and in some Mainland states. The cards are included with a special Wal-Mart edition DVD of "Superbad," which includes a scene in which a teenager attempts to buy alcohol with a similar fake Hawai'i license. The cards are labeled as driver's licenses and include a fictitious Honolulu address. They would likely be recognized as bogus by anyone who inspects them closely but might fool someone who's not careful, and could be altered and made harder to spot, officials said. The city is asking Wal-Mart to stop distributing the cards and to repackage the DVD without them.
