We interviewed 3 people at Lord John Russel Pub in the Bloomsbury area of London, in regards to their knowledge of Cockney rhyming slang, a cryptolect of English developed to confuse authorities that has since embedded itself as a semi-common slang in areas of London. It now mainly serves to confuse foreigners.

This video was made by Joshua Barnett, Gregg Gaddy, Rachel Hartman, and Stephanie Sparks for the 2008 Film in Britain study abroad program through Michigan State University.
