YouTuber ICEnJAM took sound clips of the Vault-Tec representative you meet at the start of Fallout 4, and used them to cold-call strangers. The result was hilarity.
Talk about a devilish prank.
Jerks continue to waste everyone's time—and risk people's lives—by getting the cops to raid the homes of unsuspecting, innocent gamers. We and other outlets have covered "swatting" incidents. Now Phoenix, Arizona station 12 News is on the case, too.
Poor guy. All he wanted was to provide a service: fixing go-karts. Instead, a jerk repeatedly responded with Mario Kart jokes.
This guy, in the black? This guy right here is a pranking asshole.

Have you ever had someone spill a drink on your laptop? It happened to me once, and I got pretty angry. If only I'd had telekinetic powers...
I thought there were still a few days left 'til Halloween, but it seems it's already here. This skeleton, used by YouTube prankster Rahat The Magican at various drive-thrus, is definitely running on an empty stomach.
