Body of content:
In this crazy TV prank, I called a guy on Craigslist who said he could mount all types of TVs on the wall, but he was NOT prepared for Billy and his stubbornness! Billy doesn’t have just any TV, it’s an enormous 61” tube TV!! He was friendly about the situation at first, but when Billy questioned his expertise the guy went off!
Billy was pretty harsh with this guy, but his reactions were too funny! What was your favorite part for this crazy TV prank? What pranks should Billy pull off next time? Tell me in the comments below!

Pranker: I have me a tube set hat I want mount on my wall and I was wondering how much that would cost?
Guy: You said it's a tube TV, is that what you said?
Pranker: That is right.
Guy: Ummm… You don't really mount tube TV's on the wall, it has to be a flat mount.
Guy: Or it has to be flat TV.
Pranker: Well - am- e- I know you all- you all mount the newer ones.
Pranker: This is an old TV so I figured you all could do that too. I mean...
Pranker: I-I-I'll pay for the uh.... The extra mount or whatever it is.
Guy: How big is the TV?
Pranker: It's uh... 61 inches.
Guy: Ho! Can't hang that on a wall.
Pranker: I believe in you, you can do it!
Pranker: I-I-I'll be there for you, I'll give you motivations and all these ...
Pranker: I'll tell you "You can do it!", may-maybe that would help.
Guy: Huh-ha-ha... It's not about motivation it's about...
Guy: Them not making mounts for 61 inch TV - TUBE TV.

Pranker: Ar-are you not as experienced as you promised in the advertisement or something?
Guy: Oh, I'm experienced as promised.
Pranker: I mean if you can't do a tube set...I don't know how you all gonna do all these new 2013 plasma televisions.
Guy: Uh... 61 inch tube TV's they don't even make a mount for it.
Pranker: Well that-that's why you gotta be like MacGyver and get crafty. [chuckles]
Pranker: Do you know what I mean?
Guy: I mean, the only way to do it would be to build a shelf.
Pranker: No... I-I-I want it- I want it have it kind of free falling off the wall.
Pranker:I want to be able to put my feet under there.
Guy: That's what I'm saying, the only way to do it would be to build a shelf that-that-that comes off the wall.
Pranker: Listen! I told you over and over again!
Pranker: I want it mounted, I don't want no shelf, okay?
Guy: Okay, well there's no way-
Pranker: So how much you charge for me to do a uh- mounting?

Pranker: I was calling about the uh, TV mounting?
Guy: Yeah you're the one that called me a dumb**s?
Pranker: Well, I'm sorry sir I'm just very honest, you know what I mean?
Pranker: I-I-I speak it like I see it, or hear it rather in this case.
