Homemade Restaurant Prank Videos

Now for some Friday fun.

Eric:
I dare you to walk up to a restaurant table and start eating off of someone’s plate.
Me:
How about I give you… fifty bucks to do it?
Eric:
I’ll bet if you had a video camera, you could do with no problem. All you’d have to do is walk up, eat some food, and as soon as they start getting mad, jump out with the camera and tell them they’re on TV. People will let you get away with anything if they think they’re on TV.
Me:
Hey, that’s true.
Eric:
I’ll bet you could even make a business out of it. Go around taking food off of people’s plates and pretending to film it.
Me:
After a few weeks, you might even get a good ROI for your camera.
Eric:
Or you could be really cheap and return the camera at Costco.
Me:
This could be done for all kinds of pranks too. You could go around pretending to sample people’s dishes, drink their wine, all kinds of stuff. It could be made into an ongoing series, or maybe into a funny way to do restaurant reviews, sort of like Yelp, YouTube, and CollegeHumor having a threesome.
Eric:
You should totally do this, man.
Me:
Hmm, where’s the nearest Costco?

  1. I’ll bet you could even make a business out of it. Go around taking food off of people’s plates and pretending to film it.

    Hmmm, at that point, it wouldn’t be pretending anymore, would it?

  2. Oh, ha! Good catch dude! I must admit, we were slightly inebriated when this conversation occurred – which made the whole idea seem perfectly logical. Funny how drunk logic looks so different when sober, huh?

  3. Wow…I had a similar conversation the other day with some slight variations. Imagine going to a job interview with a video camera, bringing a bunch of friends and some alcoholic beverages. “Do you mind if my friends join?”…just to see the look on their face and how long it would take before you and your party are escorted out. Maybe not the best thing for business, but would make for some great entertainment.

  4. Hahah! That’s sort of like that MTV show where they see how long you can hold out before losing your temper! Man, these would make for some pretty entertaining incidents, huh?
