There's nothing better than watching someone fall for a good prank, and they're always the best way to kill time. They've always said that a good prank arises when you probably have too much free time on your hands. That may be a good thing for people who enjoy watching them -- but for the victims...it could mean a lot of disappointment.
And some of the best gags prey on our dependencies, as evil as that sounds.
Like people in airports who are desperately searching for power outlets to fuel their cell phone addiction, or make that ever-important phone call to a friend or family member. We've all been in a situation where we're at like 1% battery, just getting off our connecting flight with a short lay over -- we need to charge that phone as quick as possible. But sadly at some airports, outlets are a huge commodity and finding one can be an extreme challenge. Needless to say if you were to finally figure out where one is and find out it's a sticker...you'd probably be a little heart broken too.
Which is why this guy's fake wall-plug-that's-actually-a-sticker prank is so great.
Twitter user @JustBasicDave set the whole thing up and recorded unsuspecting prank-victims. They never saw it coming.
Once people discovered he was behind the prank, they weren't so amused and we can't say we really blame them. It's just too evil.
People were praising the evil-awesomeness of the prank.
Others were not so happy.
What do you think? Brilliant prank? Or just plain annoying? We'll see what you think next time you're at 1% battery life and just praying you make it to an outlet in time. I think we've all been there at some point.
