I love a good practical joke but there’s been a trend on youtube in recent times to act like a massive douche to complete strangers, make fun of the strangers’ normal and natural response to an absurd and often frightening situation, and then try to make money by posting the video of the incident. Like I said, a practical joke is fine, scaring the living shit out of people and trying to make money off that is kinda douchey. I’m just not a fan of any of that.
So here’s a video of one of these types of ‘pranksters’ getting pranked himself.
At the end of the day, his previous prank of ‘spraying his friend with very hot water’ registered quite high on the old douchometer, so it’s pretty fair that his buddies wanted to return the favour. The thing is, these people are supposed to be friends. Why the hell are you spraying hot water at your friend? How is that a prank? It’s just being a dickhead. Then you’ve got the original prankster fainting and crying when as a result of being pranked himself which is pretty embarrassing. As a friend, I’d think you might want to help your close friend avoid the permanent humiliation that comes with two and a half million views of him fainting and balling his eyes out.
I don’t know about the rest of the world but personally, I see both sides of this as monumental douches and wouldn’t want to be friends with any of them.
Massive douche tip: treat your friends like you would prefer they don’t end up permanently scolded or traumatized.
