Locked Up Abroad: worst fake dreadlocks seen on TV

Have you caught the National Geographic Channel's "Locked Up Abroad" series? Tonight's episode took us to Spain and this unfortunate actor had to wear terribly fake dreadlocks. You can see a sprout of his own hair sticking out at the hairline. I'm sure the work paid his rent, but the hair is obviously so fake that it should be a crime to wear fake dreadlocks in any role, whether dramatizing a story or not. Saying a person wears "dreadlocks" is not saying that they're resentful towards combing their hair, though I have had those moments in having to comb out my hair after a shampoo without conditioner. The history of dreadlocks is actually better explained on this site with photos showing what most dreadlocks should look like if correctly maintained, if only you ignore the bottom photo of the woman.
