How would you react if a stranger suddenly comes at you and tries to slap you? Obviously alarmed and maybe confused or annoyed. Well, a pair of Malaysian pranksters thought it would be fun to pretend slapping strangers.
YouTuber Mizan, who currently has 9.62k subscribers on his channel, said that he and his friend wanted to initiate Prank Gertak Tampar Orang (or the fake slap prank) to see how people would react.
The local YouTuber later uploaded the full length video of 8 minutes and 41 seconds detailing his process and also the part where he apologised to his “victims” and got their permission to include the prank episodes in his channel. Some of them look as though they wanted to be rid of him ASAP.
After a few rounds of pranking unsuspecting shoppers at Mid Valley Megamall, Mizan was seen sitting outside panting. “I do this solely for you guys and to entertain you,” he was quoted as saying. The question is, do people actually want this sort of “content”? If you can call it content.
The majority of netizens (if not all) were unimpressed with this fake slap prank. Many called it a public annoyance and childish. Some even pointed out that someone could have gotten hurt, had they accidentally tripped and fell down the escalator.
Other comments include:
- “Two words: Kurang Ajar”
- “Sampah Masyarakat”
- “Give them some flying kick for their stupidity…”
- “This prankster should be charged”
The YouTuber also uploaded a clip on his Instagram but has since turned off the comments section – presumably after receiving a ton of flak for his behaviour.
