The Crazy Russian Hacker gets a crazy prank call!

Best quotes: 

  • “I have a channel where I tell people how styoobid it is to throw a knife at your camera.”
  • “I have American BASSBORRR!”
  • “Okay what about two and a half? I have a one cousin he’s ryke a midget guy, he’s a small one, only count as half.”

Body of content:

I had an opportunity to prank call Taras, a popular YouTuber who goes by “Crazy Russian Hacker” and has a channel with millions of subscribers. His brother Dima and Dennis Roady, a fellow prankster, helped me set up a CRAZY prank that they knew he would believe and get totally freaked out over!

Taras sometimes films slow motion videos with a special camera that costs $180,000. His brother Dima got in on the prank by calling to claim he accidentally broke the camera with Dennis Roady, and I came in as tech support to give him the news of a VERY pricey repair. He completely bought the awful scenario and was not ready to hand over that kind of money!

In the end, Taras was a great sport about this prank, and it was awesome to get to pull off a call like this on a fellow YouTuber. Should I do some more crazy Russian pranks? Tell me in the comments what other YouTubers you’d like me to prank call!
