A good prank could make one’s day! Pranks are supposed to be harmless practical jokes pulled on your friends and family without displeasing them in any way. From time to time, pranks turn into a ‘prank war’ causing practical jokes to get disorderly and start a quarrel between people. While a creative prank might get good laughs, some pranksters don’t know when to put an end to it.
In this list, we're covering some “humorous” pranks that people thought were taken too far.
1) Twins Rob A Bank
With a significant Youtube following, the twins Alex and Alan stoke decided to prank an innocent Uber driver. Covered in black from head to toe with accompanying black masks, the twins carried a bag full of their personal cash and stood right in front of the entrance of a bank when they called an Uber driver who was supposed to be the deliberate prank victim.
When the Uber driver realized the situation he was caught in he refused to give the twins a ride. The nearby bystanders seemed to have not understood the prank, which led to the Police being called over. The police were understanding enough to let the twins off the hook though the twins were not satisfied and decided to pull the same prank again on another Uber driver for which they ended up getting charged.
2) He Broke His Back
A professional trickster couple known for their prank war on Youtube did all kinds of pranks on each other. It was another beautiful day to pull a prank on Robin Armstrong by his girlfriend Wendy who decided to set up his chair to explode which would fly him into the pool.
The plan didn’t go so thoroughly. Instead of landing in the pool, Robin was shot up 10 feet in the sky resulting in a severe back injury. As if the heavens were on his side, Robin did not endure any permanent damages, however, he did spend a couple of weeks in the hospital recovering.
3) A Prank That Cost A Worker His Life
In the year 2018, in Japan, a factory worker thought of a fun idea to use compressed air in the factory used as a tool in manufacturing unorthodoxly. Compressed air has a monumental amount of force, enough to pierce the skin. Its purpose is not for practical jokes. The worker aimed the compressed air toward his colleague’s backside. The result was as appalling as it sounds. The air punched through the worker’s back, making its way past the clothes and into the body damaging the lungs, which eventually led to his death.
Pranks are only funny when they are not harming an individual in any way. At the end of the day, all we need is a fluffy joke to lighten up the mood and not risk our lives.
