Carrie Prank Convinces Coffee Shop Patrons An Angry Telekinetic Is Among Them

fb share tweet share

I prefer my caffeine delivered in oversized soda form, so I’ll admit I’m no expert when it comes to the inner workings of your average coffee shop. But based on the reactions of the poor schlubs in the above prank video, I’m guessing that most coffee runs don’t conclude with an enraged telekinetic unleashing invisible hell on her surroundings. Which is bad news for me, because that means I’ve got to scrap like three fourths of the telekinetic barista novel I’ve been working on.

Don’t worry, there’s no need to contact James Randi — this is all just a prank tied into the upcoming release of Sony’s Carrie remake. Based on the 1974 Stephen King novel, Carrie follows the titular teen, an awkward girl troubled by cruel peers and an abusive religious nut of a mother. Her problems become everybody’s problems when she suddenly begins developing telekinetic powers, and her X-men origin takes an ugly turn when she serves as the butt of a nasty prank at her prom, resulting in carnage aplenty.

Apocalyptic Prank Fools Poor Saps Into Thinking They’re In Armageddon

fb share tweet share

If there’s one thing YouTube has done, it’s increase the quantity of mean pranks in the world. After all, back in the day you could trick your brother into thinking he was being buried alive or kidnapped by terrorists, and you and your buddies could have a good laugh about it while running away from your now-axe-wielding brother. But in this digital age, you can do all that, film it, and then post it online so millions of other people can have a good laugh (without the annoyance of having to flee your now-axe-wielding brother). But once you use modern technology not just to share your evil deeds, but to create said evil deeds, now we’ve taken it to the next level.

The poor schmoes in the video about think they’re coming in for a job interview, only to be tricked into thinking they’re about to meet a horrible, apocalyptic doom courtesy of a meteor slamming into the Earth only a few blocks away. It’s obviously an ad for the Ultra HD TV used in the prank, but it’s funny enough I can forgive a bit of crass consumerism.
