Boards’ coolest: Master prankers

Does anybody smell a practical joke burning?

From the comic minds responsible for animated web series Stickman Exodus and
many of The Rapture’s music videos comes this web short about two predictive
pranksters attempting to outdo each other’s extremely juvenile and obvious
practical jokes. Like many of Brooklyn collective Waverly Films’ finest YouTube
clips ”Master Prankers” gets a lot of comic mileage from its lo-fi (and
low-brow) set up, unexpected plot twists and one well-placed production flourish
(in this case composer Matt Veligdan’s histrionic Hollywood score) that takes it
all to the next level. Endlessly watchable. -Kevin Ritchie
