As the internet grows in being a thing people spend all their time on, so do the amount of prank videos. We're in a golden age of prankage, and here's the best of the best from 2012:
“If I were famous, I would do this once a week. Seriously. I would have the staff at Madame Tussauds telling me that they didn't want me there anymore after asking to do the prank for the 24th time.” - Andy Moore
“Maybe it's just an East Coast thing about personal space, but I'm not sure how he pulled this off without getting his ass kicked.” - Brandon Wenerd
"This DJ was goin' HAM in the booth, until he suddenly wasn't." - Robb Stark
"On July 27, 21-year-old New Yorker Brett Cohen convinced New York's busiest intersection that he was famous. And he pulled off this wildly successful prank despite not really looking like any one celebrity. He hired body guards, "paparazzi," and hangers-on, and hundreds of tourists fell for it."
"Ah, mass hysteria. Where would human nature be without it?" - Andy Moore
“Jose Barrientos enrolled in a Speech 101 Class, where he decided to conduct all of his presentations in a mexican accent. He waited until his final class presentation to reveal his real voice. The resulting reactions are just as illuminating as they are hilarious.” - Robb Stark
