NASCAR Driver Jeff Gordon Gets Revenge On Pepsi Ad Critic With Wild Cab Ride Prank (Video)

Jeff Gordon Gets His Revenge With A Prank On Unsuspecting ‘Cab Rider’ – Yahoo News

You may remember the Jeff Gordon “test drive” ad from about a year ago, when Gordon, in disguise, appeared to take a hapless used-car salesman on the ride of his life. Well, as it turned out, most of that ad was staged; Gordon himself wasn’t even behind the wheel for much of the ad.

But never let it be said Gordon doesn’t have a long memory… or a desire for revenge. Gordon and the folks at Pepsi zeroed in on Travis Okulski, a writer for Jalopnik who wrote a scathing takedown of the commercial. With a little help from Okulski’s bosses, they got Okulski into a cab in North Carolina, and, well… magic happens. This one’s a bit long but worth it.

Nice work there by Gordon in playing a reasonably convincing ex-con who ain’t gonna go back to prison. The lesson is clear: don’t mess with Gordon.

Now, let’s be clear: you can be forgiven for thinking this is yet another hoax. We’re used to this thing by now: something that seems too good to be true in fact IS too good to be true, whether it’s Jeff Gordon test-driving or a wolf wandering the hallways of the Sochi athletic dorm. If this is a scam, however, Okulski and Jalopnik are both staking their journalistic reputations on it:

“This is absolutely, 100%, totally legit,” Okulski told Yahoo Sports. “Not fake in any way at all. I was really that terrified.”

Studio Behind ‘Carrie’ Remake Freaks Out Coffee Shop Patrons With Telekinesis Prank (Video)

Sony Spooks West Village Coffee Shop With ‘Carrie’ Mind Control Stunt – New York Daily News

.

The studio behind the new horror remake “Carrie” played mind games with customers at a West Village coffee shop with a hidden-camera stunt showing a woman suffering a supernatural flip out.

Video of the stunt hit YouTube Monday and amassed more than 3 million views by noon Tuesday.

“People did freak out,” Nora Petroliunas, 29, a manager at ‘sNice cafe on 8th Ave., told the Daily News. “It was funny to watch them react.”

.

Shot over two days in late August, the bit involved about a half-dozen actors posing as customers inside the laid-back vegetarian hangout.

As unsuspecting patrons walked in for a java fix, one of the plants, stuntman Travis Graves, spilled coffee on a woman ticking away on a laptop, sending her into a telekinetic rage.

.

Channeling Stephen King’s tortured heroine, actress Andrea Morales slammed Graves against a wall and then sent tables and chairs skidding across the floor.

Morales capped the scene with a piercing scream that would have made Sissy Spacek proud, as paperbacks flipped off nearby shelves.

.

“We got some awesome reactions. Some people got really into it,” Morales, 27, told The News. “A constructor worker actually came toward me to calm me down, saying everything was going to be okay.”

To pull off the stunt, viral marketing firm ThinkModo had crews build a fake wall and tethered Graves to a pulley system.

.

The tables were on remote control tracks, while the books were rigged to tumble at the push of a button.

ThinkModo co-founder James Percelay, who hung out behind the dummy wall, said customers were clearly spooked until the moment he yelled “cut,” signaling actors and servers to applaud.

“There was not one person there whose eyes didn’t pop,” Percelay said. “You see everything in New York, but you don’t see someone flying up a wall. I think the most jaded New Yorker was surprised.”

.
…………………

“I was pretty hoarse,” said Morales, who lives in Hoboken. “But we had free coffee all day. It was so much fun.”

The revamped “Carrie,” which stars Chloë Moretz in the title role, hits theaters Oct. 18.

This Could Be The Scariest, Cruelest Prank Of All Time (Video)

This Could Be The Scariest, Cruelest Prank Of All Time – The Blaze

The Brazilian variety show “Programa Silvio Santos” is apparently known for its “run-of-the-mill hidden camera gags,” according to Gawker. This author had never heard of the show until now.

However, the show’s latest prank, titled “Ghost in the Elevator,” is absolutely horrifying and likely traumatic for the gag’s unfortunate victims.

Gawker provides a quick summary of the prank:

Titled “Ghost in the Elevator,” the so-called prank starts out normally enough, but soon the elevator lights start to flicker and out pops a little girl reminiscent of Samara from The Ring clutching a doll and starts to scream bloody murder and playtime is officially over.

The worst part? The dystopian laugh track playing over scenes of random people losing a good ten years off their lifespan.

Agreed.

Watch the cruel prank below:
