    say one day you're on youtube, and you see this interesting video. you click on this video. the volume of the video has been somewhat toned down, so you turn your volume all the way up. you're in the middle of the video and so far, things seem normal and nothing obvious is about to happen. The video is nearing it's end. you start prepping for it thinking of other videos to watch,

    then, all of a sudden,....

    "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!", attached to a hideous/scary/twisted face!

    I.JUST.GOT.PWNED.

    has this ever happened to you? share your stories if they have. this has happened to me for the 10th time! youtube pranks. gotta love em.

    That happened to me once about eight years ago. Someone sent me one of those damn chain emails* and I looked at the attachment.

    * I was a kid at the time, not the wiser and nerdier adult I am today.

    Yup. I like seeing the reaction vids to those people being setup with scare videos. Almost as funny as the reaction vids for 2 girls 1 cup...almost.

    Katy Perry screams at the end of her vid for T.G.I.F.

    Does that count?

    Every time I click a video to watch, I pause, look at the like/dislike ratio (youtube now has a nifty color graph for that), and read some of the comments before actually clicking play. It's usually very obvious if a video is worth my time or not.

    I'm always suspicious of videos that state "turn your speakers up" or "watch this closely". It's usually one of those.

    I remember I jumped right out of my seat on one of those videos a few years ago. I was like why am I watching some car drive peacefully, little did i know it was a screamer.

    Someone tried pranking me with one of these. He was stupid enough to be crouching beside me when the prank was in progress. I freaked out when the scary image popped up and in my startled state, I flailed my arm and hit the prankster in the face hard enough to draw blood. No more pranks since that day.

    Also, video relevant to thread. It's not a screamer, guys, I won't pull a dick move like that. It's a hilarious reaction to one. :lol

    My 4th grade teachers did that to us as a Joke. Kinda young to scare people shitless.

    It was the car vid, where the zombie thing pops up. Change your pants and get back to work.

    But yeah, they told us there was an accident during filming and you could see a ghost rising up. Safe to say 8 year old little me was scared... And then angry. :/

    This is why I always turn the volume down and read the first few comments before watching a suspicious video.
