Sneezing in Public Virus Prank
« on: February 16, 2020, 06:14:04 am »
By now everyone has probably seen the Asian sneezing in public pranks on YouTube and TikTok!

It’s amazing that they blame the reactions on the current virus situation in China.

If anyone sneezed on me or near me I’d be angry too. If anyone ran up to me and sneezed on me I’d probably yell at them or react in an appropriate manner. But everything is racist these days.

Your thoughts on the pranks? If a white guy sneezed on you would you just stand there and take it without reacting?

P.C. Culture wow!!!

Youtube pranksters are just dumb. Prank your friends all the live long day. The second it becomes random members of the public (possibly a few situational exceptions, like at a mass beach party or something), all protections regarding personal safety and property up to grievous bodily harm should be removed.

Yeah. Not "pranksters", rather dickheads

Some of those idiotic pranksters I've seen on YouTube totally deserve the beating they get. I hate pranks. I hate pranksters. They're not funny.

Three groups who have members who cross the line, often legally, but get uber defensive when you call them out and act as though their stuff is a vital part of freedom- Journalists, cops, and pranksters. What I really don't like about pranksters is not so much their pranking, although that is awful (I especially like the selectivity of their targets that tend to be people unlikely to fight back), it's their reaction to the person being upset like "How dare you get mad at me for totally using you as an object to amuse myself with! Can't you see I'm doing you a favor by making me laugh?"

One of the rare times I might condone someone shooting someone. Want to reduce the human impact on the environment, cap one of those moronic pranksters.

I used to enjoy the “Just for Laughs” pranks from Montreal.

They were all in good fun, and made people confused, not angry.

If a prank makes the victim what to hit you, you are doing it wrong.

Candid camera was your jovial pranking show. Grandma loved.it.

Punk'd with Ashton Kutcher was pranking with an edge.

There's always moralizing types to overreact and take life waaay too seriously.

Someone pee in your cup? Laugh it off and/or return the favor.

if the victim laughs at the prank, then it's a good prank
if the victim feels humiliated, angry or upset, then it's not a good prank

it's not hard

I used to love the show Jackass which you could loosely call a prank show because the joke was always on the guys themselves and rarely the public (who were mostly just the backdrop). 

But these days, pranks are mostly really mean spirited and seek to humiliate a target.  "It's just a prank bro"  :rolleyes:

I did make the caveat of "Beach Party". I think most of these pranks or all of these can be done at the appropriate setting. However random people out in public is not an appropriate setting for a lot of these pranks. Now at something like a beach party or Spring Break or whatever where you have large numbers of people, lots of cameras, and everyone is in a party mood, then maybe you do some more extreme pranks.

I would also differentiate between things that are more "public goofs" that have a very mild prankish element, (i.e. walking into a bank dressed as a tyrannosaurus or something like that)  or something that is so ridiculous over the top and laugh inducing and good-natured that it is highly improbable anyone would get angry vs. outright shock pranks.

Paul Gascoigne (90s footballer)  used to crap in new players' boots when they joined the team.  I'm sure they all appreciated the 'joke.'
