Like it or not, YouTube pranking channels are one of the most viewed and most viral video types of YouTube entertainment. Here's a list that's not ranked by the subscribers count.
Please know – this a personal opinion from Josh Brown on the top seven pranksters to subscribe to on YouTube. They may be overrated but trust me – they are the best.
And to give you a taste of what they’re about, I’m also embedding my favourite prank video for each channel:
A girl took the opportunity to pretend to cheat on her boyfriend while he was at a friend's b-day party! She went all in here: got her hands on a mannequin, bought a complete men's outfit and even sprayed it with cologne in the mall to smell like a different dude.
This guy pranked cops in an old-fashioned way by holding a water bottle where you'd think would be something else, and making everyone think that he's peeing.
This is one of my favourite pranks ever. And it's actually the first prank video I watched that really got me into the "prank scene" on YouTube. This guy dressed up as a zombie and terrorizes a parking lot in Florida. WARNING: don't you ever try this at home.
A video full of suuuper funny reactions from people when some stranger just tries to gently hold their hand while walking.
A grown man dressed up like a kangaroo and starts to do extremely random and unexepected things by jumping around like a real kangaroo.
A very intense prank where a guy dressed up like Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat and creeps people out.
This is probably one of the scariest prank videos I've ever seen. And honestly, stuff like this can give people real heart attacks. But it's defintily worth seeing at least through your computer screen.
