I have to admit it takes great ingenuity, cunning and creativity to come up with the indelible ideal ATM mugging prank that will leave one laughing along with mates for eternity. So on that basis we ought to be thankful for the Idiot ATM mugging prankster and his entourage Reckless Youth for their ingenuity in thought. But that’s about all….
the dailydot: Is it a “prank” when you tie a bandanna over your face, sneak up behind your bro at an ATM in a crowded area, and grab him around the waist while screaming for his money? How about if another friend films you doing it? Or is it not truly a prank until you’re yelling “It’s a prank!” to avoid being further throttled or beaten by strangers?
So imagine the picture kids, you’re about to out prank your buddy (who’s also in on the act) by pretending to be a mugger, scare them to oblivion in the hopes of constructing a social experiment to see how onlookers will react. It ought to be funny. You’ll get one over them and you’ll be able to show how clever in the end you were. Except the one time you weren’t….
However you slice it, there was nothing funny about this hidden-camera conceit from Reckless Youth—until it came to a bloody, tearful halt because the particular moron seeking viral Web fame got decked in the face, and hard. Far more surprising than this inevitable outcome is that his accomplice stuck around to make sure he didn’t have a concussion.
Some experiments of social crowd control are too optimal.
