If it’s safe to call 2013 one thing, it’s the year of prank videos. While prank videos aren’t necessarily a new trend, the amount that has begun to surface on a weekly basis leads me to believe that there is a higher demand for pranking than ever.
Unfortunately, much like anything that becomes too popular, prank videos have become a bit overplayed, as horrible, unfunny and desperate videos have clouded the web. But through the smoke and fog of what is utter and complete doggy diarrhea, there have been some pure nuggets of gold. Some pranks have been so successful, they’ve even pranked us as viewers.
We took hours upon hours going through each prank video we’ve posted over the past year (sure we did…) and determined which ones we liked the best. Here are the 10 best prank videos of 2013:
Fake Federer Prank
A prankster living in China decided to dress up like Roger Federer and see if people would think he was the tennis star.
“I Am Spartacus” Prank
This is maybe the greatest thing ever to happen inside a Starbucks …ever.
Dime Bag Prank
The NYPD may never be the same after one prankster asks officers what to do with his dime bag.
Cell Phone Crashing Prank
This prank will make you never want to make a call in public again!
“To Catch A Predator” Prank
When a desperate girl asks some men passing by for money, you won’t believe what disgusting and absurd lengths they’ll attempt when they see an opportunity to take advantage of a young girl.
Telekinetic Coffee Shop Prank
What would you do if you were at a coffee shop and all of a sudden you saw someone doing telekinesis? How would you react?
Subway Panhandler Prank
Rather than complaining about the things most subway panhandlers complain about, this man had some unique issues to share with his fellow passengers.
The Ferrari Prank
Four guys set out to conduct a social experiment to see if ladies go for them based on who they are, or what cars they own.
“I Cheated On You” Prank
This guy has no idea what he’s in for when he pranks his girlfriend about cheating on her.
Jimmy Kimmel’s “Twerk Fail” Prank
This is one of the most genius pranks of the entire year, maybe the decade.
We look forward to the ridiculous pranks of 2014.
