Tech and Science News: YouTube Prankster Jailed

It probably won't be the end of IT'S JUST A PRANK, BRO! but two British YouTube pranksters are in legal trouble for a pair of hoaxes they pulled off last year and one is getting jail time. Oh, wait! We do Social Disorder! Maybe we can finally get Chris and Aaron locked up!

    "Man, that kid who got shit from the police for bringing a clock in that his teacher mistakenly thought was a bomb. Let's support him by intentionally making people think this clock we have is a bomb!"

    10/10, would logic again.

    On a serial note, these kinds of pranks are stupid enough to begin with, but with all this ISIS shit and all the bombings going on, do they REALLY think that a terrorist prank is reasonable right now? That'd be like yelling "AIR RAID!" in the middle of WW2 just to scare people.

    I am so fucking tired of all these prank channels. They aren't funny, they are just assholes, they are fucking stupid. They should be in prison much longer.

    These Trollstation idiots may have ~650,000 subscribers worldwide, but this number is less than 15% of the population of the city of London. They are actually nobodies in the real world, just another young gang terrorising residents of the most unfriendly city in the world.


    I love living in London, you are anonymous, nobody cares who you are or what you look like so absolutely anyone is welcome!! The only rule to follow is : do not speak unless you are spoken to

    unless it is a homeless person and then you should talk to them; you have to be pretty remarkable to survive on the London streets and a cup of coffee and a chat can teach you A LOT!

    (Don't tell my mum I do that) (she still tells me not to chat to strangers even though im 28)

      You start by saying they have 650.000 subs who know their names. I'm pretty sure 650,000 people dont know the director of NASA

    Surprised they didn't mention the 'The Jalals' channel. And how those 3 brothers are facing jail time for similar pranks i.e.fake bombs, fake drive-bys

    The key difference between the Jackie Chan movie and these guys is that the object of the Jackie Chan movie was a practical effect that had the proper paper work filed, these pranksters did not file paperwork and had the object of making people think that they had a bomb.

    "They did it, too," isn't a valid defense. "They didn't get punished (but those all these other people did)," isn't a valid defense, either.


    The question of the movie production: Did they get all the necessary paperwork done? Did they do it with the intent of frightening people? Then, it seems that they covered their asses while not trying to be asses.

    they're right in terms of there should have been more punishment for the bus explosion. but can we stop with the pranking? pranking used to be funny and clever, now its just idiots making people think they're watching real acts of violence so people can get off watching real people be scared

      The Bus explosion was approved of by the city of London and had the proper permits and the director apologized saying they should have done more to inform people of the filming. The film company had already informed the local businesses and residents that this was happening, notices were also posted leading up to the date.

    I like this. I blocked some people on facebook who posted terrorist pranks once, thinking to myself 'how are these people not in jail yet.' well, glad that problem is solved now!. Prank videos aren't even funny.

    Thought this might have been about the Aussie pranksters and their terrorist pranks which had them arrested, but I think released without charge.
    I don't get why these pranks get views at all. The best ones are clever, like a dog dressed up to look like a giant spider!
    Now it just seems like idiots trying to one up each other for greater shock value and no unique ideas.

    Like toddlers testing the limits of what they can get away with before they get in trouble, maybe we need more arrests to draw the line in the sand.

    And it's always going to suck for the first ones to find that limit.

      I heard somewhere that one dude, who dressed as an Arabian terrorist (He's of Arab descent) actually got shot during one of his pranks.

      For some reason, when he started doing pranks where he dropped bombs by people, yelling "Allahu Ackbar", people started to realize that he was just a tasteless fuck, not a clever youtube person. And from the report I had heard, he was shot three times by a concealed carrier, who then called the bomb squad after trying to move the bomb to an open area, where it wouldn't cause harm. Kid's gonna survive, but seriously, what the fuck did he think would happen?

    Aren't pranks supposed to be funny to both the prankster AND the person getting pranked? I don't believe that somebody who thinks they were about to be blown up or thought their friend was about to be killed in front of them are laughing about it afterwards. Pretty sure they just felt terrified for a good while. So fuck those "pranksters", their idiocy should have some repercussions.

    Good! Lock them away for a long time! Maybe then they'll get the hint that it's not funny!!!
