Mark Rober needs to add “Citizen Hero” to his resume. After taking down porch pirates, he got revenge on four notorious scam call centers by disrupting them with stink bombs, glitter bombs, cockroach bombs, and more. It all came together with the help of CCTV hacker Jim Browning and Trilogy Media on the ground.
Serial prankster Rémi Gaillard takes us behind the scenes of his recent stunt in which he crashed a fake spaceship in the middle of a road, then emerged dressed as a space alien looking for help from passers-by. He also flew a strangely-lit drone into the sky which fooled some media into reporting about a UFO sighting.
Long-time prankster Rémi Gaillard couldn’t make it to the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, so he put on his own version of the event wherever he could find the room. Rémi competes against himself in events such as the random lady’s purse toss, downhill moving walkway kayaking, and car wash surfing.
After two two prior efforts to get back at package thieves, engineer Mark Rober kicks things up another notch. His latest Glitter Bomb is the most diabolical “gift” yet, adding the nasty glue from mouse traps, 4x the fart spray, eau de skunk, a police light effect, and a mechanism that makes it harder to shut off.
Infamous prank callers, The Jerky Boys are back with their first new album in 20 years. The Comedy Dynamics album stars co-founder Johnny Brennan phoning unsuspecting victims under the guise of new characters and fan faves like Frank Rizzo, Mike Deruki, Jack Tors and Sol Rosenberg. Drops 11.27.2020 (Black Friday).
With the help of Pikus Concrete, Zack Nelson of JerryRigEverything managed to have a gigantic 3D-printed statue created in his own image. The 12-foot-tall concrete sculpture weighs in at 6,000 pounds, and Jerry had it dropped next to his buddy’s swimming pool as a prank. We’re sure it will soon get sliced open by What’s Inside.
Whether you’re just pranking your friends by dropping it into their swimming pool, or you want to scare off waterfowl, Flytec’s remote-controlled crocodile head should do the trick. Basically, it’s just a toy boat that looks like a gator, but it looks pretty convincing to us. Now somebody needs a full-size boat that looks like this.
An amusing clip from the Netflix series Magic for Humans in which magician Justin Willman uses a mix of illusion and collusion with the audience to convice two subjects that they are now invisible. Lots of commenters think the marks were actors, but we’re not so cynical.
Jesse Wellens and Casey Neistat are back with another awesome Halloween costume build. After riding around as Aladdin on his magic carpet, Jesse took to the streets of NYC with model Carmella Rose on a real-life speeder bike from Return of the Jedi. BTS video here.
If Lexus’ latest automotive autonomy feature sounds too good to be true, that’s because it’s way too close to April Fools Day for us to buy it. Still, the idea that you could force annoying drivers to move out of your way remotely should come standard on all modern vehicles.
Every single one of us has at least a couple of “guilty pleasure” tunes in our song library. In this prank video from MarkBTelevision, he decided to leave the headphone jack unplugged on his iPhone and let the public listen in. Remember when iPhones had headphone jacks?
