Great Sci-Fi Pranks

Standard

scifiprank1This Halloween I wanted to do something special but was at a loss, until I came across this YouTube gem.  Here is a wonderful compilation of incredibly fantastic sci-fi themed pranks from “Just For Laughs“.

This colleciton of public pranks revolve around a crashed UFO or satellite scenario and an unsuspecting member of the public is brought into the “sticky situation” to assist authorities into dealing with the fiasco. Each section ends with the gag being revealed to the unsuspecting talent and their reactions.

My favorites were the crashed UFO with the chicken pilot and the crashed NASA satellite that is taken away by an intimidating group of Men in Black. The dumbfounded reactions by the unsuspecting public is priceless and the props and sets created by the production are top quality.  The execution of these pranks are absolutely perfect – when the video ended all I wanted was more.  That’s the sign of a good, well executed viral production.  You can check out more of their gags on their Official YouTube Channelhttp://www.youtube.com/user/JustForLaughsTV/featured

Happy Halloween everyone!

Star Trek vs. Spaceballs

Standard

StarBallsVideo editor Jason Einert has a created a gem of a mash-up short film utilizing footage from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Spaceballs. I don’t normally promote mash-up videos but after stumbling across this beauty I had to give the guy props for making it – it had me in hysterical laughter all morning.  I’ve since checked out many of the other videos he’s put up on YouTube and they’re phenomenally funny. Jason is a self-taught editor and uses off the shelf software to create his work.
