The Invisible Rope Prank! [VIDEO]
Last night, my son was telling me that he'd love to pull the invisible rope prank. I had no idea what he was talking about, so he explained. You get two people on either side of a street, and when a car or cyclist comes along, you pretend that you're pulling a rope tight. People will slow down, stop, and even swerve to go around those doing the prank, thinking they're pulling something in front of them.
I'll admit that it sounded kind of cheesy to me, but I figured I'd look it up on YouTube to see what all the fuss was about. Sure enough, there are numerous videos of cars stopping or slowing down, and the video below even shows a man getting out of his car to find out what was "blocking" the street.
Is it funny? The twelve-year-old in me says yes. The adult in me says it's dumb, but it's also in good fun, which makes it okay. Maybe the people being pranked would think differently.
The question is, do you think it's funny?
