If you’ve totally exhausted YouTube Red of all it’s brand new movies and TV shows but still need to consume some more mainstream YouTube content, then boy do we have some good news for you. Announced today, the three biggest YouTube pranksters in the world have made what looks to be the greatest pranking movie since, well, anything – Natural Born Pranksters!
Starring Roman Atwood, Dennis Roady and Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, Natural Born Pranksters plans to be absolutely stuffed full of new stunts, pranks and social experiments designed to set the entire world on edge. The feature-length movie is simultaneously released in theatres and on VOD/DVD on Aprils Fools Day (April 1st) 2016, after a gruelling nine-stop tour starting in Washington DC on the 21st of March.
As well as the three most successful YouTube pranksters in the world, with a combined 28 million subscribers, the trailer features other popular faces such as Jenna Marbles, KC James and Furious Pete. But, aside from all the YouTube talent, you might recognise one of the stunts that Vitaly performs from way back in 2014 when he streaked his way into the World Cup Final in Rio with the words ‘Natural Born Pranksters’ written on his chest. Now we finally know why!
Whilst the trailer conjures up very nostalgic feelings of old Jackass movies, some of the stunts seem incredibly inhuman to the point that actors are portrayed as hung or burnt alive in order to get a cheap thrill from the prank victim. Whilst we can’t wait to watch and applaud the trio’s achievements, we’re absolutely certain there will be some backlash after one or two of the stunts inevitably cross a line.
