Lad's Security Guard Prank Goes Surprisingly Well
Have you ever been approached by a security guard when you were just trying to enjoy a day's shopping?
Maybe you were told off for smoking in the wrong place, dropping litter or being a bit too loud in a certain area. Or maybe you felt the guard was just being a total dick. Don't worry about it, it happens.
But what about being approached by some guy just dressed up as a guard for the sake of it? That's what this guy did.
Approaching the public to tell them off for a variety of ridiculous things - including pushing a pram in a place that clearly says 'no vehicles', one vlogger has most definitely pissed off a load of people who just wanted to get on with their day.
And he filmed the whole thing...
Apparently, the video took four days to film in order to complete the two minute video - and not all people were so believing of the prank.
Luke Choles, the man behind the plan - and the suit - told TheLadbible: "We got caught out many times - 60% of people realised it was a prank, either by spotting the camera man or seeing me previously. But, the people who did believe me gave me heightened respect!
"There was a case at the station where these people with their hoods up started walking faster and in the opposite direction when they saw me, a couple people nodded at me."
Though the video shows Luke looking as though he entirely knows what he's doing, he found acting like a professional security guard to be quite difficult.
"I thought it'd take a day," Luke said. "On the first day there wasn't many Londoners strolling about - so they either didn't understand or speak English."
"But for those who did understand, we ended up telling them it was a prank afterwards - and they usually laughed - even the police laughed after questioning me on what I was doing and if I 'knew my rights on impersonation'."
And according to Luke, giving his audience two minutes of laughs didn't come cheap - with the video itself setting him back around £150.
But, being able to shout at random people in a costume is a pretty priceless experience in itself, isn't it?
