Making people jump by honking an air horn is not a prank.

Slapping a greasy cold cut on someone's shoulder is not a prank.

THIS is a prank.

But of course, this took effort and coordination on the part of many people rather than being carried out by some immature asshole who thinks he's hilarious so it doesn't count.
CornOnTheCabre
um. what THIS is, is viral marketing (that probably had just a slightly larger budget than your average immature jerkoff)

Binro the Heretic
It's STILL a prank.

Could just link to the YT video;

I wonder what would have happened if one of those "I wanna open carry in coffee houses becuz FREEDUM" types had been there?
misterbuns
this was in NYC.

Binro the Heretic
They would have run away even faster. Those people really believe in evil spirits and the devil and such.

And they know bullets are no use against that sort of thing.

urbanelf
A lot of innocent people would have been saved from the maw of Satan.

SATAN DIDN'T HAVE NO MAW!

Satan was made by Gawd all by his self!

The Mothership
Aww, no fair filling the place with actors besides the girl and the guy up on the wall; crowd dynamics are predetermined.

MS makes a good point, but the intrepid surveyor dude earns the 5th star back.

EvilHomer
Loses a star for doing some lame telekinesis thing, instead of dumping pig's blood on the customers.
stifford
meh...the overacting ruins it imo.
you don't pose like an X-man pushing the due up the wall,
and then look at your hands all dumbfounded.
everything should move x2 fast, and yes mix in some pigs blood.

that dude with the skeleton in the drive thru got better reactions for probably 1/20th the resources.

South America is way ahead of us in Prank Execution.

We are on the precipice of a prank gap, people. For every prank the United Stated produces, Brazil produces two.

infinite zest
is this viral advertising for a movie? If so, well done. The prank itself? "Actors" wouldn't really be the right word.. also didn't they remake carrie like 10 years ago?
Hammer Falls
It was a sequel/attempt at a reboot, "The Rage: Carrie 2".

kingofthenothing
15 years ago, you old fart.

She didn't shit on his chest, but otherwise exemplary.

Yeah 6 stars for the prank, -3 for overacting, editing, and way too many actors.

Seriously I lost track of who was an actor and who was a customer.
Innocent Bystander
Hint: the ones they film to get reaction shots - they're not actors.

Also: the girl with telekinesis, an actor. The dude being dragged up the wall, also an actor.

misterbuns
How did this confuse you?

They had to cast actors to cover the set. It wouldn't work if the public was interacting with rigged set pieces.

Overacting? The performances were theatrical, because the audience was theatrical. These actors weren't acting for lenses, they were acting for the public in the shop. That might make them look silly on camera, but the public reactions were what this performance was designed to get.

Editing? This stunt probably had an interval of 20 seconds and cost 13K to pull off. You bet they covered the shit out of that set with cameras and you bet they're going to show it from every angle.

Wouldn't you?

Nominal
They showed portly shaved head glasses dude's reaction and I could have sworn he was with the actors at the beginning.

Was it only one performance?

I honestly couldn't tell because of the editing.

misterbuns
yeah, they just had a bunch of cameras on her to get the most out of the scene.

they're not creating a cinematic experience, they're creating a live performance and this video is documenting that experience, so it makes sense that it's not going to have the editorial character of cinema.

also they want to show off the stunt!

Nominal
I guess I went into it expecting the prank to be repeated for every new customer.

They tried to make it a little too reality TV with the editing. I would have preferred a single continuous wide shot with maybe a picture in picture reaction shot.

memedumpster
Not real telekinesis(!?ANGER!), one star because I would have done better even though I never will!
Robin Kestrel
They're all gonna laugh at you.
