A group of pranksters in Beirut, Lebanon, disguised themselves as masked mannequins in an elevator. When their unsuspecting victims got on, they'd "come to life" and scare them. It's hard to imagine that the women they targeted found the humor in believing they were about to be assaulted.
Anonymous British graffiti artist Banksy has pulled off another stunt that seized the attention of the art world — this time at the expense of his own work.
On Friday, a Banksy painting titled “Girl with Red Balloon” was being auctioned at Sotheby’s in London. The spray-painted and acrylic piece depicted a little girl extending her arm out for a heart-shaped balloon, floating far beyond reach.
The bidding climbed to $1.4 million, an amount that tied the artist’s own auction record from 2008. Finally, a hammer pounded to signify the end of the auction.
Right then, the painting’s canvas began scrolling downward, seeming to pass through its elaborate gilded frame — and reappearing below in neat, vertical strips. Later, Sotheby’s would explain that a shredder was hidden inside the frame.
This guy closed himself in a large gun safe at a store. His friends decided to have some fun and started typing in random passcodes trying to open it, however, they typed it in wrong too many times and actually locked him in the safe. The store had to call 911 to get him out.
I don't think there is any way possible that this do didn't shit his pants on his way to work. Imagine getting into a car thinking you were catching an Uber and ended up hitting over 100 mph on the back roads.
Police in Ibiza are investigating a brutal attack on a British tourist after he staged a prank by pretending to be asleep in the middle of the road.
Several videos of the attack at 8.30pm on Tuesday night have now come to light on social media and are being studied by the Civil Guard.
The attack happened in the popular resort of Cala de Bou and started when the unidentified Brit wearing just shorts and a pink T-shirt decided to lie down in the middle of the road with his hands behind his head.
A prankster has been criticised after placing dangerous animals in his friends' beds while they were sleeping.
Russian YouTube blogger Khizri Zapirov published a video of him carrying an almost fully grown lion into the flat of his friend, Artur Abdurakhmanov, and carefully placing it on his bed while he is still sleeping.
Mr Abdurakhmanov, clearly still groggy with sleep, at first seems to struggle to work out what is happening.
But when he finally realises there is a lion in his bed, he quickly jumps up and hides behind Mr Zapirov in a corner of the room.
A teenage girl who claimed to be auctioning off her virginity in return for an iPhone 8 was taught a terrifying lesson.
The 17-year-old is reported to have posted her 'offer' in an online forum, where she said she would give up her virginity for a cash payment of around £2,300.
But her post was discovered by a vlogger who hosts a show, and they set up an interview with the unsuspecting teen, known as Xiao Chen.
Footage posted by vlogger Nana, 21, shows the pair meeting in a tea house, where Xiao Chen explains that one of her friends slept with a wealthy stranger and earned "easy" money.
The girls claims she wants to order to buy the new iPhone 8 - which all her friends have - although several people have said the footage is fake.
