One of the few pranksters out there that managed to deliver content in today’s overloaded funny industry without turning to fake or staged shenanigans has just delivered a new piece, so we thought we’d share it with you.
We’re talking about French prankster Remi Gaillard, who plays the role of a mobster in his latest stunt. This is one of his simplest productions and yet the clip is as effective as a bullet (check out the clip and you’ll understand) when it comes to generating giggles.
While we won’t throw spoilers at you, we can’t help but think this is an excellent way of getting a taxi ride without having to pay at the end. And while feel the need to throw in the usual “don’t try this at home,” we can’t help but be amused by this video.
Sure, we have no proof that the whole stunt isn’t staged, but we can rely on the comedian’s reputation for delivering genuine pieces. After all, we are talking about a man who has a thing for stirring up the French police.
From dressing up as a speed camera and flashing a patrol car, to using his football skills to send a ball straight into the back of a police van, Remi isn’t afraid to get up close and personal with the law.
Remi’s message for accompanying this video? A simple one: “The problem with taxis is when they are on strike in the middle of a ride.”
