Playing pranks on strangers is an extremely stupid idea. Unfortunately, pranking videos are big business on YouTube. I blame Ashton Kutcher.
Pranks are especially ill-advised when your targets are groups of men standing around in the dodgier parts of town, and your idea of a prank is saying or doing something designed to make them angry.
This video makes for very uncomfortable viewing. These idiots get beaten up, threatened with knives, and even have a gun pulled on them, all in the name of YouTube views.
No one involved in this comes out of it well. The people pulling the pranks are idiots, and the people who instantly use violence for the most minor misdemeanors are also idiots.
