An Australian man who made international headlines last week after his Facebook account was repeatedly shut down for using the Vietnamese name “Phuc Dat Bich” has just admitted that he made the whole thing up.
Families who attended a parade in Hattiesburg, Mississippi were outraged when they discovered candy in the shape of dicks had been thrown during the event.
Customers shopping at a Target located in Campbell, California were shocked when audio from a porno began playing over the store’s loudspeakers. Gina Young, a woman who was shopping in the store with her two young sons, filmed footage of the incident and posted it on her Facebook. In the clip, moaning sounds and…
Roman Atwood is a popular YouTube personality famous for pulling pranks. His girlfriend, a repeated victim of Atwood’s hoaxes, was tricked again when he pretended their three-year-old son was killed in a fiery explosion. Is it really necessary?
Poor Donald Trump! Not only is the millionaire (is he still? Are we keeping track?) and disgraced racist being roundly mocked in the media for his presidential campaign, but now Harvard has gotten into the act, jokingly endorsing The Donald for president in a fake ad. Trump is, sadly, less than pleased.
Celebrities love to go on talk shows and brag about the pranks they’ve pulled on other celebrities. Usually, these pranks are charming and harmless. Not so, this time.
If you follow Paris Hilton closely on Instagram (like I do), you’ve probably seen posts of the former reality star’s many glamorous travels. Hilton is usually seen hopping on a plane to some beautiful, far-off place and on one of these trips, she became the target of a terrifying prank. A recent YouTube clip showed…
There are two awful about this video: The nightmare of a wax figure coming to life to murder you and take your soul, and the reality that some people will do anything Ahnold tells them to just based on the fact that he’s a muscled-up guy in some scary make-up.
This is described as a prank, but watch Rihanna wake Jimmy Kimmel up, and you’ll see that to the rest of us, it’s a beautiful dream.
Here's the thing about April Fools': It sucks. Pranks are all well and good when you're five years old and the only thing you can do is drool and make up some joke about being a space monster or something, but when you're an adult and try to raise the stakes, that shit gets real. Here's a tip from me to you: Never…
April Fools' Day is a national menace. Sure, if everyone in America were as funny as they think they are, it would be a big laugh. But they're not. Oh, they are so surely not! And so Last Week Tonight host John Oliver asks that you take a solemn vow: "I will not play any practical jokes and if I see someone planning a…
Teens are idiots. Case in point: A teenage girl arranged for her black boyfriend to be arrested by a real police officer as a way of asking him to prom. Get it? It's funny because an unarmed black kid who hasn't committed a crime has absolutely no reason to fear the police.
The only thing worse than all the junk mail stuffed in your mailbox is finding a card that's actually addressed to you, but is covered in mounds of glitter. The shiny stuff ends up all over your hands, your face, and your home, and it's all but impossible to clean up. So that's why a glitter bomb, courtesy of …
You know how sometimes you take videos when you mean to take selfies on accident and then watch them and want to die a thousand deaths as frame by frame of you getting ready to take a picture rolls by? Me neither. That's the premise of this prank, though, and this dude falls for it EVERY TIME.
This video is for anyone that has ever gotten a truly horrible gift they absolutely did not want and had to fake being happy about it. This grandmother's reaction to her gift is your revenge. Bask in its warming glow.
A few weeks ago, I lent my smartphone to my nineteen-year-old cousin while I was getting my hair cut. I thought she would use it to download Candy Crush or play Words With Friends, but when she handed the phone back to me, she smirked and pointed to the Tinder icon. And then I heard the "bzzzz" of an incoming message.
Thanks to bro folklore, movies like The Hangover, and simple observations, the association between bachelor parties and bad behavior is one that's deeply ingrained in America's cultural consciousness (yes, #notallmen, but certainly a lot of them). What we don't think of when we think of bachelor parties is prankery.
I've always thought "pranks" were a somewhat socially acceptable excuse for acting like a titanic asshole, and this video does nothing to dispel that impression. Watch as this guy pretends his girlfriend's beloved cat has fallen from an upper story window, presumably to its death.
I have always held a suspicion that Ellen Degeneres is actually kind of evil. Like squeeing hamsters evil. She wouldn't actually kill them, but she'd squeeze them until they were uncomfortable. That's why it's not surprising that Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet has decided to boycott her forever.
Everyone's buzzing about the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer, because Fifty Shades isn't so much a work of fiction as a culture-wide essay prompt. Easily the best take is this bit from Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show, who filmed The Roots reacting to a remixed version—with a scary scream-y face added.
