    I have been watching these clips on YouTube and am amazed as to what they can get away with on foreign shows. Pranks like these in the US would probably result in lawsuits. Does anyone know what shows these are from, as they just have the same clips posted over and over, and for the set up on some of these, I doubt they would design sets like this just for one episode

    This one is cool, but the set up alone must be huge, and for only 5 different clips (that I have found)?

    OK, what did this cost?!?

    They are not really pranks when it could easily cause a heart attack. Why not just have someone walk up to someone and put an unloaded gun to someone's head and threaten to blow their head off. That's pretty funny right? Or a doctor could tell someone they have cancer and they only have 2 weeks to live.

    They also could seriously injure the people. In the elevator if the person doesn't fall just right, that won't end well.

    Bed one can't be real. No way could an unsuspecting person get there. Way too many things had to be set up.

    Bumping up as there seems to be more clips on YouTube, but no one mentions the name of the show. Can anyone help, as I have tried to Google it, and run into the same problem. They love the clips, but no one names the show
