Scaring someone for fun: It’s mean, but it’s almost always funny (so long as the prank is harmless).
Thus, we share prank videos often -- not so much because we condone pranking your friends (we do) but because bearing witness to the victim’s reactions is a guaranteed mood-lifter.
The latest, dubbed the Teddy Bear Scare Prank, is both harmless and laugh-out-loud funny, making it the perfect video to close out this long work day.
The prank, as you might suspect, involves a man in a teddy bear costume and unsuspecting bystanders.
A photographer set up camp on a busy street, offering anyone interested a free photoshoot with the giant "stuffed" animal.
Those who obliged were directed to sit down next to the bear on a bench. As the photographer counted down to snap the photo, the man in the bear costume would move or make a noise -- scaring the sh*t out of the poor, innocent prank victims.
It’s simple, yes, but it’s so, so good.
