Prank War 6 September 10, 2007 2:09 PM   Subscribe

UpdateFilter: So, you thought Prank War was hilarious? Lame? Either way, it's tough to imagine topping pranking (/ruining the life of) your friend in front of a sold-out Yankee Stadium.

Idea= Hysterical. But.... when the girlfriend slapped the guy, it looked staged to me.

Same here. Her slap indeed looked staged.
"Hey, Streety-bird, how about we make a series of videos which pit us against each other in a Prank War...and you know, like we post it to the website where we work. Yeah -- we can make it into an Internet meme -- and drive traffic to the site. Whadda think?"

Someone actually believed these pranks were NOT staged? Also... WTF?

it's weird, because the video is pretty funny, and metatalk IS for followups sometimes, but huh...

so.. it's either staged, which is lame, or it's real, and INCREDIBLY cruel to the girl.

So... Bravo, internet pricks. Bravo.

Does anyone get their nuts punted in these videos? Because otherwise, I'm out.

That girl just accepted a proposal in front of a stadium full of people, only to be told that she'd be lied to and her boyfriend wasn't asking. I'm surprised that all she did was slap him.

It seemed artificial because it was an artificial situation. That's all.

Fake, fake, fake. You can see him expecting the slap, and it's not a hard "fuck you, you bastard" slap.

Also, who shows up to a ball game at the top of the 5th inning? Losers and fake pranksters, that's who. He shows up, gets pranked, and flees.

Photoshop! This chart has been Photoshopped!

Also, why is this in MetaTalk?

Also, make sure to update us when "Prank War 7" comes out. I know it's a continuing series, but it's too important not to mention here.

WTF did we ever do without cellphones?

This isn't really the sort of thing that yearns for an update in Metatalk.
