DmPranks Productions

Pranks are definitely fun…. as long as your not the victim. DM Pranks is a channel on YouTube shared between two friends – Diego and Mateo, hence the initials – who center their insane scares in Brazil (don’t check me on this fact, I could be wrong). In this new prank involving killer clowns, Diego and Mateo take their jokes to whole new levels of terror and comedy.

Killer Clowns

I love DM Pranks not only because of it’s mind numbing fun – which definitely earns a few laughs every now and then – but also because it’s videos can be realitvely thought provoking. Sometimes, you feel bad for the poor victims of this prank, wondering what they must be feeling after something like this happens. Do they laugh? Do they yell in frustration? It forces you to think about the nature of pranks – how far is too far? – and it has to make us wonder, “What would I do in this kind of situation?”

It’s hard to say what I’d do if I was pranked like this. Would I run like many of the people in the video? Would I fight or call for help? Would I freeze up? And honestly, what would happen if I did anything but run? It’s nice yet somewhat terrifying to think of the possibilities.


Laugh Factory



The Laugh Factory channel on YouTube is an extension of the new media and production arm of Laugh Factory, Inc – a comedy club with locations in Hollywood, Long Beach, Chicago, and Las Vegas. The man in the video, Chris James, is a British born actor/comedian and, despite having only a few videos on the Laugh Factory Channel, is one of their well-known stand-up comedians.

Truth be told, I have a hate-love relationship with Laugh Factory. More often than not, some people just aren’t funny. Then again, comedy is subjective: what makes you laugh doesn’t necessarily makes others laugh. That said, sometimes it’s hard sifting through tens of mediocre just to find one that is pure gold. But when I do find the video I’m looking for – and I’m not looking for much, basically just any video that can make me laugh out loud – I feel as though all the searching was worth it. After all, there’s nothing more powerful than the sound of laughter. It can do just about anything, whether it’s making you feel better after a crappy day or keeping a relatively good day rolling.
