Prank Videos On YouTube Getting More Dangerous

Prank videos can be a lot of fun, and that is exactly how they started out when they first appeared on YouTube. Someone would set up a funny prank and video tape it with the person being taped not realizing that they were about to be the subject of a prank. If the prank is executed well, then we can all watch it and have a laugh. However, pranks on the Internet lately have gotten more and more desperate.

Mashable.com has published a great article that details how prank videos have gone from fun and innocent to downright terrible. They show some early prank videos that are very innocent and funny such as a person getting wet from being sprayed with a rigged up water faucet. However, the pranks started to get more and more dark as people were willing to do anything to get the clicks they wanted.

A member of the cast of Big Brother UK Sam Pepper was one of the bigger names to get in trouble for using YouTube as a means of doing something wrong. He made “prank” videos in which he allegedly sexually harassed someone. When this video came out it received immediate backlash. YouTube star Laci Green even went so far as to write an open letter to Sam Pepper calling him out for what he had done.

The criticism of the actions of Mr. Pepper grew and eventually he removed all of his Internet existence for a short time. He later returned to the Internet with more horrible material and was once again denounced. It was just the latest sign that some people will do whatever it takes to become “Internet famous”. There is a lot of money for those who really can generate a following, but there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it.

Man Wrecks Tvs Worth $6,000

If you ever think that you are having a bad day just know that at least you did not wreck $6,000 worth of televisions. That is what happened to one man in England recently, and the video is making the rounds.

The Huffington Post reported on the story and even showed the video to go along with it. The customer was leaning down to take a look at the television screen when he ended up knocking it over and into another television screen. That was crazy because the two sets together have a value of about $6,000.

The customer has not yet been identified, but people are already laughing so much at the video. The video is pretty funny because we can all relate to what this experience might be like. We can all understand what it might feel like to be in a situation like that, and we might even feel like it is something that we could see ourselves involved in.

The person who got himself stuck in a bad situation like this made it even worse by reacting in such a way to the first television falling over. He sort of snapped back and ended up bumping another television set over as a result. That was certainly not what he thought he was going to get into when he went in the store.

Perhaps at the end of the day the store will just take the free marketing that they are getting from the video as payment enough for the televisions that were ruined. Maybe the customer will also come forward and identify himself as well.

Newest Viral Sensation Involves a Naked Japanese Guy, An Electric Fan, a Table Cloth and a Tea Cup

If you’ve been sleeping under a rock or lost in the forest for an extended period of time, you may not have heard about the newest viral sensation to hit the internet. Or maybe you seem to recall mentions of that naked Japanese guy and a table cloth around the office, but you just haven’t gotten around to checking it out. Well, whatever the reason, it’s time to bring you up to date because this guy is simply too great not to see for yourself.

Kazuhisa Uekusa is a comedian from Japan’s Saitama Prefecture. At 29 years old, this innovative fellow has found himself to be the latest global sensation due to his rather unique talent. We’ve all seen versions of the table cloth trick in which someone yanks a cloth off a table so swiftly that it doesn’t disturb the place settings of fine china, glassware and silver. Well, Uekusa takes this classic bit to a new level by using his naked body as the surface upon which strategically placed cups and saucers are set.

His videos began circulating on Twitter just recently after he posted one he had leftover from a series of television show performances. Hating to see the clip go to waste, he stuck it up online and was then surprised to see how popular his parlor trick was becoming. His latest version involves the cloth being wrapped up in an electric table fan so that when it unravels, it is pulled from beneath the cups without causing them to crash to the floor.

Pretty amazing, huh? While it may be a bit risque and more than a little bizarre, this viral sensation is also simply too amazing not to see.

British Habits That Make Americans Say WTF

When Americans think of British culture, words like ‘sophisticated’ and ‘refined’ usually come to mind. It turns out that folks in the United Kingdom have certain really weird habits that make us say WTF.

What could our neighbors across the pond possible do that would make us think their heads aren’t quite screwed on straight? For starters, they keep their washing machine in the kitchen. Instead of eating beans out of a bowl or off a plate like a normal human being, Brits put it on toast. Yes, toast, bread from the toaster. If you order pudding over there you’ll probably be disappointed if you expect to get a bowl of smooth chocolate or tapioca, since they’ll serve you a piece of tasty cake with a weird texture instead. And guess what they serve for dessert at family dinners? Spotted dick. Not kidding, but at least it’s not as obscene as it sounds.

They sell wine in plastic cups in convenience stores, and their orange juice comes either with or without ‘juicy bits’ in it. Brits don’t get the concept of tipping, apparently, since bartenders over there get worried as to why Americans try to give them extra money. They say ‘fortnight’ instead of two weeks.

Some Brits wear bum bags, but that’s just what they call fanny packs. They keep a big plastic container they refer to as a wash-up bowl in the kitchen sink to wash dishes in instead of sudsing up the sink, for absolutely no logical reason I can think of. Rather than having knobs for hot and cold water, the Brits decided to install two separate faucets in each sink, which I’m guessing makes plumbers over there pretty happy. And they lose their minds when they find out Americans don’t use egg cups, because we eat our eggs off a plate like normal people.

Cheerio!

Funny Viral Trends in 2017 This Far

The Internet is an endless spring of entertainment. More and more comedic content is popping up, and some are left in the past. Most of the content features memes and vines which sprout out from unsuspecting source materials such as movies, celebrity interviews, animals and children behaving funny, and above all real life situations.

Not too long ago, the primary source of comedic content was Vine which is no longer around. There are other outlets, however, that serve as a platform for people to share some entertainment. We are halfway into 2017, and the memes and comedic clips have come and gone, and of course, more are emerging.

Some of the most recent funny viral trends were memes such as ‘my name is Jeff’ which came from a movie that hit the theaters this year. There was something sad yet comedic in the way the actor said the phrase and that had many video content creators use it as a punch line to relay awkwardness.

Another viral trend on the internet this year has been the fidget spinner. It was originally for relaxation purposes, but it turned into somewhat of a meme when the toy became so overly saturated on the internet. People made a laugh out of throwing fidget spinners in the trash or pretending to play the character of the ”basic” person.

Memes have been around for about a decade. Almost each one of the creators is unknown, but their creations are used to entertain millions of teenagers and young adults every day. Content creators use them in unique ways and come up with new things in the process. What makes a good meme is usually the relatability and the comedic value while in some cases it is the cringy and awkward feeling they inspire. Memes are the internet’s way of expressing oneself.

The Fun Things on the Internet that Show Up Every Day

The internet certainly evolves and develops faster than any other media that we know of. In the online world, trends come and go with very fast pace.

For example, on last year Viners were all that the internet was consuming, and now Vine is one of the biggest guilty pleasures of the network. Who didn’t catch the popularization of the social media Ask.fm two years ago? And the popularization of the Twitch memes? How come that now they are one of the cringiest things on the internet?

Trends come and go, and one of the most everlasting places to find the latest trends is the good old YouTube and its potential to have something new for the internet every single day.

One of the best channels to visit to have a good laugh is the channel “Cut,” that constantly releases footage of dozens of people doing the same thing, but to each on their own. This week, for example, their newest Viral video was the “100 people share their evil laugh,” and it is certainly loads of fun to see awkward and cringe moments where the evil laugh is something much funnier that you expected.

Twitter and Facebook are great places to find new funny videos as well. For example, lately, there’s been a video circling the network about a security robot that patrols on its own. That is fine, but there is footage that shows the robot simply falling on a pool, helpless, while trying to execute its commands.

How can we talk about the funniest news without mentioning politics? Donald Trump, doesn’t matter if you support him or not, certainly increased the availability of funny videos on the internet regarding politics in the U.S.

In 19 of July, for example, there’s proof that the wife of the Japan’s Prime, Minister Shinzo Abe, met with the president in an afternoon, and told him that she did not know how to speak English just to blatantly avoid talking with the man, while she later showed to the internet that her English was perfectly fluent.

Hurry up: By the time you are reading this article, there’s already something new to digest from the immortal pool of memes that is called “the Internet.”

Innovation of Technology and the Birth of Internet

Technological innovation has led to the creation of the internet. This is a network where people interact, share resources, and pass information. The whole world has adopted this network in the carrying out of nearly all activities. The internet is used for both official and entertainment purposes. Internet trends are being witnessed daily whereby people abruptly decide to do a particular activity through the internet. Some of these trends are very funny and entertaining. Here are three commonly viral items.

1. Sharing Funny Videos

The internet has various websites through which people can record, upload, and watch videos. Websites such as YouTube have enabled this service. Currently, people have adopted the trend of creating funny videos and sending them to other internet users. Whenever a person receives the video, he goes ahead and forwards it to another person. Within a short period, the video goes viral, and everybody gets it. However, not all videos shared are funny. Some are pranks and end with deadly results.

2. Sharing Funny Pictures and Photos

People frequently use social media websites to interact with each other. These websites are only accessed whenever a person accesses the internet. In these sites, people take, post, and share photos. Others create their photos through programs such as Photoshop. Whenever a funny picture is posted on a social site such as Facebook, people comment about the picture. The picture is forwarded to another social site whereby more people see it.

3. Sharing Jokes and Information

People to share jokes and information have used the internet as a medium of entertainment. In this case, one person can create a social site and share a joke. Other people will view the joke and pass it to others through the internet. Twitter has been the most successful in this area. A person creates a twitter handle and posts a joke or discussion. Other users of twitter view the information and tweet about it.

Florida Student Faced Backlash For Proofreading Letter That Went Viral

College student, Nick Luntz got a handwritten letter from his now ex- girlfriend. The University of Central Florida then decided to do a little prank. He took the letter and decided to proofread it for spelling and grammatical mistakes. He also annotated it and even gave his ex-girlfriend a letter grade for her apology letter to him.

Thinking it would be funny, Nick Luntz took a photograph of the letter and his corrections along with the grade he felt she deserved. He then posted him holding him up the letter with the corrections and grade on Twitter. The message and posting quickly went viral on Twitter. It was quickly retweeted over 100,000 times in a short span of time.

I must say that it is a very funny prank or joke to play on an ex-girlfriend. There was nothing mean or harmful done here. You are merely making fun of the spelling or grammatical mistakes that may have occurred during the writing of the letter. The internet seemed to agree with this sentiment and Nick quickly gained fame in the online and pranking world.

This joke did land college student Nick Luntz in some hot water however. His ex-girlfriend tried to file an online bullying complaint against her ex-boyfriend which was dismissed by the Volusia County Sheriff’s office. They correctly said that there was no damage done or any intention of damage. You cannot file charges against someone just because they offended you or made you feel uncomfortable. There were no threats or risks posed said the sheriff.

Not only did his ex-girlfriend not take the joke well, but Nick’s own college did not like it. They suspended him, but then readmitted him after an uproar. As an attorney for Nick Luntz said, the college violated his free speech and it has no business in policing activity that he does outside of the university.

Funny Viral Trends on the Internet, 2017

You can’t afford to have a gloomy day if you have access to the internet. The web has turned into an entertainment hub. Just like any other community, the online community appreciates humor. Thanks to social media sites like Facebook, Reddit and Snapchat, it’s easy to spread hilarious content to a large audience. Currently, there are funny trends that have taken over the internet. These trends include YouTube pranks, challenges, GIFS and memes.

The BowWow Challenge

This is one of the most hilarious trends this year. It was a sarcastic response to a photo posted by American celebrity Bow Wow. The artist posted a picture of a private jet on SnapChat. The caption read, “Travel Day.” Judging from the post, he wanted his fans to believe that he was traveling by private jet. However, he was spotted on a commercial plane and a fan leaked a picture of him on the internet. Internet users began posting deceptive images with the hashtag “BowWowChallenge” on their captions.

Tiny Trump

President Donald Trump was made the subject of a series of funny memes that went viral. Well, Trump is around 6ft tall. Since he came into power, he has strongly fought against fake news. Early this year, he met with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin. People started posted memes showing President Trump as a tiny person, almost the knee-height of an adult. According to these memes, Donald Trump’s actual height is fake news!

The GIF Frenzy

GIF (graphical interface format images) have won the hearts of internet users this year. These kinds of images are similar to videos, except they’re very brief. The image contains a visual recording that is played over and over at certain intervals. It’s has become a viral trend as most people are converting funny one-liner jokes from TV shows into GIFs, and sharing them on various social media sites.

Golf Cart Versus Friend

Since the internet began many years ago, and people started posting their videos and photos, internet trends would explode over night. One of the most famous internet trends that everyone has either done themselves, or at least heard about, is planking. This is essentially just laying face down on different surfaces acting like a plank. There was also the “what are those” trend which was people going around to strangers, pointing the camera at their shoes, and yelling “what are those!” The point is that an internet trend can literally be nothing one day, then the next day everyone is posting videos or pictures of them doing the same thing.

While the “what are those” trend is seemingly harmless, others are not. When planking was a trend, people would do it in dangerous places like the middle of the road, or on top of an open door. The internet’s most recent trend is no exception, and can be very dangerous for the sake of comedy. People have been posting videos of them on the golf course with some friends. It usually entails one of the members golfing or walking on the golf course, while a friend is recording a video of themselves driving a golf cart straight into their friend. This trend began when a verified Instagram account called “bestvines” posted a meme of a little girl driving an electric toy car over another young boy. This video was titled “Would you run over your friend for 2 million dollars?”

The internet is divided on whether they think this trend is funny or not. Some people are worried that it is too dangerous of a trend, and that it might go too far. Others are just excited to watch a new trend spread like wildfire on the internet, and enjoy the videos.
