Pranking is risky. Improperly done, you look like a douchebag rather than your target. And if you have no satirical intentions to your target, you better make sure the joke isn’t so disruptive that you look like a stupid douchebag. With those rules, it’s amazing to think anyone would think spraying Tom Cruise in the face with water from a squirting microphone would actually have any result other than being arrested. (These same pranksters, who entitled their upcoming(?) show the ultra-urbane Balls of Steel, hit Sharon Osbourne with a squirting camera, what’s next - eyeing Lindsay Lohan with X-Ray specs?) How old are these comics - four?
The saving grace of this dumb attempt at a joke is that it’s given bloggers great post fodder as to what freeze frames of the prank in progress look like.
