5 Hilarious Spy Camera Pranks
If you have aspirations of making a viral video, then without doubt the best way of doing so is by installing some spy cameras and playing pranks on friends or unsuspecting members of the public.
Some of the most viewed videos on YouTube involve people using spy cameras to record people’s reactions to their practical jokes, and more often than not, their reactions are absolutely priceless. The possibilities are endless. Whether you want to record yourself scaring a loved one or pranking a friend at college or work, all you need is a spy camera and some confidence to get your golden footage.
Not only will a viral video make you something of a local celebrity among friends, but many people actually make money from their videos. If the footage you capture is funny enough, you could recoup what you paid for your spy camera in no time at all. Before you buy a spy camera and attempt your own prank, here are five hilarious spy camera pranks to give you some inspiration:
Hidden Camera Uber Prank
This taxi driver uses a spy camera to capture her passenger’s reaction to her very loud singing during the journey. The driver begins singing Wonderwall by Oasis as soon as the young man gets into the car, and his awkward reaction to the performance is priceless. He even begins secretly recording his driver so that he can show friends. The driver then tells the passenger that she’s an aspiring musician and decides to give him a few more songs. The poor guy looks like he’s going to cry throughout. This is one Uber journey he’ll never forget.
Hidden Camera Scare Prank
Notorious YouTube prankster Shay Carl recruited a young girl to help pull off his spy camera prank. His sidekick stayed hidden in a cardboard box until the victim walked into the room. The whole prank was caught using a spy camera, and the reaction was brilliant. He will be having nightmares about this prank for a very long time.
Kevin and Lauren’s Hidden Camera Prank
Celebrities also make the most of spy cameras. On the popular TV show The Ellen Show, the host was secretly instructing two store assistants on what to say to unsuspecting customers. Some of the things the store assistants were told to do and say to the customers were utterly bizarre. The whole shop was rigged with secret cameras which captured the hilarious prank. The two actors even began kissing over the head of an awkward and uncomfortable customer. Nobody expects to see that when they go shopping!
Ashton Kutcher’s Hidden Camera Prank in Australia
Hollywood star Ashton Kutcher put on his best South African accent and dropped by a store in disguise to give customers a demonstration of a brand new range of tablet computer. He created as many awkward situations as possible, including making a bed on the floor for people to lie on with him and he also took a selfie while kissing an elderly lady who had entered the store. At the end of the prank, he decided to challenge a customer to an arm wrestle. The rules were simple: if Ashton won the arm wrestle, the customer had to buy a tablet, but if the customer won he would be given one free of charge. It’s needless to say the customer won pretty easily and Ashton ran away fearing he’d be sacked for the stunt. The customers were all amazed when they discovered the room was rigged with spy cameras and a Hollywood star was beneath the fake glasses, wig and pretty poor South African accent.
