Do you ever get the urge to mess with strangers? I don’t mean in a malicious way – but in a light-hearted, fun-poking way. Pranking strangers can be a lot of fun, as long as they’re good about it when they realize they’re being pranked. However, some people could potentially get violent in that situation, which is why it can be a good idea, if you’re planning to pranks someone, to figure out a way to either hide or not be there as the prank goes down.
A decent example of such a light-hearted prank is “The Big Cone,” from Jackass: The Movie.
Sorry about the recording-of-a-recording quality – that’s about the best I could find.
That kind of idea is a safe prank – you’re probably not going to make anyone too upset, and in this case, even if people DO get upset, they have no idea there’s a guy inside the giant cone.
There’s a YouTuber from England by the name of Colin Furze who has a show all about building all kinds of crazy pieces of machinery. I’ll have a look at a few more below, but the one I want to focus on right now is this remote control garbage can (or “Wheelie bin,” as the Brits call them).
It looks like a great way to mess with people that, again, won’t really hurt anyone or make anyone too angry. If anything, it just brings a smile to people’s faces. He’s got a video documenting a little bit of how he threw it together, and why:
What other awesome things has Furze built? How about a 125cc motorized Big Wheel built for drifting?
For the person who has trouble getting out of bed, there’s the High Voltage Ejector Bed.
How about a 60-mph jet-propelled go kart?
I personally am amazed he drives these things around without a helmet on! I wonder what his mother would say. Anyway, there’s a whole bunch more cool stuff on his channel – if you’ve got some time to kill, I’d recommend checking out some more of his crazy engineering work!
