Way before there was a thing called YouTube and an unlimited amount of wannabe comedians, Tom Mabe was making a career out of being a prankster. His most recent “prank” also appears to be his most popular one.
Here's another example of a really well done prank. A really simple concept and execution - no one gets hurt and no one feels like their life is really in danger - but folks do get the crap scared out of them!
This prank/video was put together in an attempt to further promote the release of the new Carrie remake (coming out on October 18th). And it obviously worked, because here I am sharing it with you and, in turn, promoting the release of the movie.
The guys that put together this video have also done several other prank videos...most of them are pretty good. Maybe I'm becoming a prude in my old age, but what makes a prank good for me is when it's funny (duh), relatively harmless, and when the "victims" can laugh at …
Just a few months ago you could dress up in your best zombie apparel, and go out on the streets with people thinking you were just a weirdo. But after a dude high on bath salts ate the face of a homeless man in Miami, people are a little more on edge when it comes to zombies.
I am NOT a big fan of pranks/videos in which parents really scare the crap out of their kids. To me, that's just mean, and a bit cruel. This prank, on the other hand, is pretty funny. It's innocent, nobody gets hurt, and the kid's reaction is pretty funny.
