Body of content:
Michael Buckley is an old school YouTuber who has a huge fan base and is good friends with many creators. When a group of YouTubers teamed up with me to prank someone at Playlist Live, we agreed on Michael! Being such a good guy, we knew he’d be horrified if we told him during the prank that he was caught grinding with a minor at a party during Playlist Live!
When confronted about the illicit grinding, Michael was equally confused and apologetic! You can feel his relief when he realized it was all just a big prank! How would you react if you got a call like this after getting wild at a party? What other YouTubers should I prank call? Tell me in the comments!

Olga: I'm so nervous-
Pranker: A lot of you guys may be familiar with his content uh, he's an OG youtuber and today...
Pranker: ... hopefully he's gonna get his ass pranked! So...
Pranker: Let go!
Olga: Let's do it!
Matt: For some context, Michael Buckley is known for tearing it up on the dancefloor.
Matt: ... at every event. VidCon, playlist, and we're here at playlist and last night was no exception to that.
Matt: So, that's what this is based on.
Steve: Hey, he doesn't discriminate on the dancefloor, he dances with everybody.
Matt: He's dancing with everybody...
Steve: No, he's gonna be a super good sport about this. He's very- he's got a very good sense of humor.
Olga: This issue is very illegal in America.
Olga: So, I don't know...
Pranker: Why don't we just get super apologetic- I'M SORRY FOR WHAT I DID! [laughing]
Steve: You know what might be even better about this though, he might be a bit drunk right now.
Olga: Oh, yes...
Steve: Oh yeah...
[indistinctive speaking and laughing]
Pranker: Alright, let's do this...
Matt: We love you Michael...
Pranker: So, the way this is gonna work is, you guys have your white boards in front of you...
Pranker: You'll use your markers and write down suggestions to me in real time, of what directions you think I should take the prank in...
Pranker: ... or something I should say in particular, uhm, here are some samples.
Pranker: "Ok", "poop", "boobs", "shut up Steve"
Steve: [indistinctive speaking]
Pranker [speaking as Russell]: Uh, yeah hi, may I please speak with Michael Buckley?
Pranker: Uh, hi, my name is-
Pranker: Uh, my name is Russell, I'm calling with playlist live event management now, how you're doing this afternoon?
Michael: Good, how are you?
Pranker: I'm good, thank you, uhm, [clucking] I-I feel a little uncomfortable making this phone call but I was asked uhm...
Pranker: ... to just follow up regarding a couple anonymous complaints last night regarding uh...
Pranker: ... and incident that happened supposedly on the dance floor during last night's party here at playlist live...
Pranker: So, uhm, essentially you know, we had some reports that indicate you know, there were some lewd dancing h-happening on the dance floor with a...
Pranker: ... supposedly much younger individual uhm...
Michael: Oh God!
Pranker: So, you know, we kind of wanted to just- get to the bottom of this, figure out what was going on if these are just rumors or if there's something that happened or...
Pranker: ... just kind of get some type of closure as to what's happening here.
Michael: I-I apologize if I was dancing with someone I would assume it was a friend or someone I knew and I certainly didn't mean to do something like that...
Michael: ... and I- I apologize-
Pranker: Well did you by any chance provide them with any alcoholic beverages by any chance?
Michael: There is no way I would have done that because I had just a couple of drinks to get for myself, I gave no alcohol to anybody, that would not have happened.
Pranker: Uh, but- but you were drinking yourself, correct?
Michael: Yes sir...
Pranker: Ok. Another incident that we have uh- supposedly CCTV footage of and also just, from the different c-cameras surrounding the area...
Pranker: ... of course this is playlist last, a lot of people are vlogging these events uhm...
Pranker: The DJ at one point was yelling, you know, to grind on the dance floor, so there were reports of mass grinding on the dance floor and uh...
Pranker: ... supposedly you partook and during that uh- portion of the dancing with the underage gentleman.
Michael: Oh God!
Pranker: Yeah, I mean-
Michael: Oh I-
Pranker: You know, between you and I, Michael, you know, is this something that you at least recall, did you mean maybe mean it in a more friendly manner that wasn't supposed to-
Michael: I definitely remember grinding and dancing on the dance floor, yeah, I do.
Pranker: Uhm, according to the footage and the complaints, the- the child was just extremely underage and some people were uncomfortable...
Pranker: ... a couple people supposedly left the party because they just- they felt it was wrong and that nobody was doing anything about it..
Pranker: ... and we were just hearing about it the next day so we had to just kind of figure what kind of horseplay is going on?
Michael: Okay, well I'm very sorry and I assure you that nothing like that will happen again.
Pranker: Okay, uhm, c-can you work with me? Just let me know like, did you take this boy home last night?
Michael: I took nobody home last night! I was nowhere near anybody last night-
Pranker: [stuttering] Just to clarify there was no games by home, I'm referring to your hotel room-
Michael: I-I have taken nobody home, I went home alone and I went to sleep and nobody was in my bed last night.
Pranker: Essentially, you just got your grinding fixed and then you wanted to just head back to the hotel?
Michael: That is absolutely [indistinct]
Pranker: I mean, the word is apparently traveling quite a bit and there's just some buzz about it, you know we don't want another...
Pranker: ... we don't want another Sam pepper incident.
Michael: Oh my God. I can't imagine that. I- I can't- I can't imagine that somebody would take that- so I don't- uhm...
Pranker: We wouldn't want any poop here, we just want honesty.
Michael: Who am I speaking to?
Pranker: Uh, this is Russell.
Michael: Russell, what's your last name?
Michael: Schwartz, okay... This is- the most horrible embarrassing conversation I've ever had...
Michael: ... so I'm just like "Oh my God", uhm-
Pranker: I mean but if you think about it you know, there is- you know, people say no press is bad press...
Pranker: ... I mean there's always that possible silver lining.
Michael: Are you serious? Are you serious? No press is bad press, that's what- that's disgusting. I'm not-
Michael: I'm a 40 year old person who's been in this community for 10 years and-
Pranker: My thoughts exactly, and the child was 15, you know what I mean so...
Pranker: [stuttering] It's very horrifying.
Pranker: I mean-
Michael: So, you were saying no press- no bad press is horrifying?
Pranker: I know but between you and I man, like, what the BUCK were you thinking?
Michael: I wasn't- I didn't know who he was, I didn't know his age, I was just dancing on the dance floor with a group of people.
Pranker: Yeah, I mean-
Michael: I wasn't trying to- I-I don't know, I mean for all I know, he was 19 or 20- I don't know how old people are!
Pranker: Yeah, but you can- you can't just bucking approach a little like- 14 year old boy and...
Pranker: You know...
Michael: Oh... I feel like I should apologize to him, I mean, I feel- and I wish I could reach out to him and just email him.
Pranker: He probably thought you were trying to-
Michael: I don't know-
Pranker: ... get a little hooha and you know...
Michael: I mean- I don't know who it is!
Pranker: I mean- Buck! What the- What the buck man?
Michael: Am I being pranked?
Pranker: [sighs] Excuse me?
Michael: Are you pranking me?
Pranker: Uh- Buckley, I mean, this event, I mean, you do recall the grinding correct?
Michael: Oh my God...
Michael: All I know is- all I know is the best part is I was just telling people how I [indistinct] to replay yesterday, twice!
[Michael talking indistinct in the background]
Michael: I was just jokingly telling my friends how I'm always drunk at these things and now I'm like...
Michael: ... this is the single most horrifying thing... [indistinct]
Michael: ... whether they were 15 or 50 or female or whatever I... [indistinct]
Michael: ... did I make somebody uncomfortable? [laughing]
