Thumbs up Hilarious: Prank on W126 goes wrong



Just saw this on TV and laughed out loud.

To preface it, since I can't find a version with an English description:

For a hidden camera TV show, a guy dressed up as a painter and began painting this guy's W126 with washable paint. When the owner of the car approaches, not knowing that its a prank, the jokester continues painting the car despite being pulled away and yelled out multiple times.

Then the beat down begins:

When the painter finally gets two words out telling the W126 owner that its a prank for a TV show, the beating continues.

what a pleasant sense of humor you have... Have you considered a career in editing children's pop-up books?

Oh please, the guy didn't seem to get hurt.

How would you have reacted?

Writers are losing their creativity for pranks...some of them just aren't funny.

Despite the premise, it would have been noted as a form of vandalism, even with the temporary effect of the washable paint.

Another prank gone wrong...though I find this one hilarious!

I'm surprised the prankster isn't in the hospital.

It's funny to the disinterested viewer; but if you're going to play with fire....................

This notion is just as stupid as pointing an unloaded gun at someone.

If you're driving a vintage 126, you're probably a car guy. Car guys tend to get a little cranky when Ronald McDonald paints the hood a non-OEM color.

That was my reaction. What was supposed to be funny about painting the guy's car?

They sure are lucky that it wasn't my car they were messing around with. I would have had that guy restrained, on the ground and arrested in under 5 minutes....and if they came back stating that it was just a prank TV show I would sue them for property damage. I don't care if its washable paint its still going to make one heck of a mess......i'd probably have to re-wax the entire car too (6 hour job....)
