Watch People Freak Out When You Turn Off the TV During the Super Bowl

Jimmy Kimmel, my favorite late night host and prankster extraordinaire, wickedly asked people to post videos of them turning off their TVs during the Super Bowl while everyone in their home was watching.

Some Guy Pranked YouTube Into Taking Down Justin Bieber's Official…

YouTube is big fat no fun having missy when it comes to copyright rules. They're so afraid of pissing somebody off (and getting a lawsuit) that they'll even pull official videos now. Like today, when a prankster submitted a copyright claim against Justin Bieber's Vevo and YouTube took down his page. » 9/01/11 7:40pm 9/01/11 7:40pm

Watch a Rocket Launcher Fail In Hilarious, Terrifying Fashion

The best way to scare the stuffing out of new recruits? Fire up the ol' rocket launcher, but rig it so that the rocket in question just piddles out a few feet ahead. Nothing like presumed certain death to build morale! [dpnf via The Daily What] » 3/07/11 11:20am 3/07/11 11:20am

What If You Only Had Five Minutes to Live?

This short film was made by someone named Ien Chi for a Campus Movie Fest at Emory University. It's a lovely reminder to focus on the things that matter in life—and to sometimes mistrust our friends just a bit. [Neatorama] » 3/02/11 12:20am 3/02/11 12:20am

This Nefarious Office Prank Will Drive Anyone Mad
