The Best and Worst Prank TV Shows, In Honor Of TruTv’s Impractical Jokers

  One of the perks of writing on the internet is we occasionally gain access to movies and TV shows before the general public gets to set eyes on them. For example, thanks to the kindness of Warner Bros., our very own Ian Fortey got a behind-the-scenes look at the new Planet of the Apes movie not too long ago. In the same vein, this past weekend I was given the opportunity to fly to New York to check out a special sneak preview of a new TV show that will air on TruTV on December 15th. That show is called Impractical Jokers, and it is genuinely good. Here in lies the problem with these kind of promotional trips: it’s very easy for you, the reader, to assume that I’m just going to bow down at the feet of a sponsor because they gave me a free trip to New York. You can’t be blamed for thinking this, because I would think the exact same thing. So being in this position is strange for me, and was strange for me all the way up to our sneak preview of the first episode of Impractical Jokers. The best part of it is, I don’t have to lie to you. I have absolutely no obligation to make up some BS about the show if it turned out to be a horrible mound of trash. I feared it would be awful, seeing as Impractical Jokers is a hidden camera prank show; and saying that hidden camera prank shows are hit-or-miss is a vast understatement. But I got lucky with this one, because it turns out the show is very funny and is certainly worth your viewership once it airs – and not only because it’s a genuinely good show, but also because the four guys that make up the Impractical Jokers are a group of great guys that all still have day jobs and have to film the episodes around their various work schedules. So while thinking about the show, I wanted to take a look back at some of the great and less-than-great prank TV shows of our time.

GIF Attack!

What's this?! A GIF from the GREATEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME?! Why, yes. It does seem like that is the case. Today's GIF Attack! could be billed as the "People Falling Down or Getting Hurt" edition. I didn't plan it that way; it's simply the will of the GIF Lords guiding my hand.

20 Surprising Things About The Duggars

We've discussed the Duggars quite a few times on this site. We kind of had to. We were doing our best to ignore them, but they did what they do best, and grabbed the public's attention once again. And they did it the only way they know how -- by having more kids. Well, not "kids" plural, but "kid" singular. They did it once more, just when you thought Papa Duggar was all out of juice, and there was no more room at Mama Duggar's inn. They are a family of biblical proportions. We're in no position to really judge their decision to have twenty kids, but we are in a position to voice our uninformed opinions in joke format.

How Come No One Likes You?

Ever notice how some people don’t like you? Neither do we. But surely you have friends who lament their lack of universal appeal. The fact is, not everyone is delightful to be around and many of those undelightful characters don’t even know why. Some things are dreadfully apparent, for instance if you have a swastika carved into your forehead, that’s really going to put off any number of people. Also if you constantly set fires or are Lindsay Lohan. But there are many more subtle intersocial faux pas that people engage in all the time that cause people to change plans when they know you’re going to be there. In the interests of ensuring you have the most active and exciting life you can, Holy Taco is here to let you know what you might be doing wrong. Er, what your friend is doing wrong. You’re awesome.

This Guy Is Yelling At Trucks And Trains

Sometimes an odd viral video says so much more than people think it's saying. Take this video of a man yelling out his car window at tractor trailers and train cars for example. He may seem like a screaming lunatic, or someone trying to be funny, but this is pretty layered. And there's a little bit of this guy in all of us. You can't deliver DiGornio. Are you pulling or are you pushing? He's right. They are doing it wrong.

Lindsay Lohan’s Prison Diary

Lindsay Lohan headed back to jail for the fifth time recently. It can't have been all that bad though, she ended up getting released after only five hours. That's not even enough time to plot an escape. She was thrown in the can again because she couldn't hold up her end of the community service deal she made after her last DUI. Thanks to some inside sources, we were able to get our hands on her prison diary in which she made hourly entries. Enjoy... Dear Diary, 9PM Oh my wow, I can't believe I've actually ended up in jail again. It's almost like, I've been given a list of rules to abide by, and when I don't abide by them, they throw me in prison. LAME! I guess the upside is, as always, everyone knows who I am, and I get treated pretty well by most of the other women. There are a few in here that are super super jealous, but whatever. They keep saying they're going "wanna put things in" me. Which is weird, because I'm not sure if they're threatening or flirting. Ok, gonna hit the gym for a bit. I have some friends there I want to catch up with.

How to Deal with Not Being Able to Grow a Moustache

So, you want to be a man, but genetics is failing you. Your attempts to grow a proud, Chuck Norris-esque soup strainer have degraded into what could best be described as the post-apocalyptic remains of Donald Trump’s hairpiece strapped to a sweaty, quivering upper lip. Don’t fret, girl ‘stache, there’s still hope for you! Or at least a way to ameliorate the shame you feel when confronted with a room full of mustachioed gentlemen . Just because you can’t grow a moustache doesn’t mean you have to take it lying down – use some of these tools to go beyond and be a better man. Or, in some places, woman.

The Midnight Mo Monitor – Day 5

Our Mo went to a Gwar concert last night and the result was a bath in fake blood, which apparently is normal at a Gwar concert. I'd punch someone for doing that crap to me, but maybe the Mo is the key to taking it all in stride. By the end of the month, we can assume it will be bathing others in blood. Or awesome. Check out more Movember!

Classic Taco – The 8 Most Awkward Childhood Moments

Growing up is one embarrassing moment after another. Here's a few moments that tend to stand out from the rest. 8. WET DREAM When you wake up from your first wet dream, you're basically like one of those soldiers in the first twenty minutes of Saving Private Ryan; scared and confused and checking to see if the stuff you're covered in is coming from your body. After realizing it's not urine by rubbing it between your fingers and smelling it like an 1800s fur trader trying to make sure he's not getting a fake pelt, it's clean up time. I'm pretty convinced that if murderers took the time and paid the attention to detail that kids spend hiding the evidence of an unexpected splooge, death row would be empty.
