The budding pranksters on YouTube’s theCHAIZYchannel are only getting started, but they quickly amassed more than 200,000 subscribers after posting only four videos. There’s a reason for this sudden success. The pranksters, while juvenile in their behavior, embrace their simple silliness. They aren’t orchestrating intricate pranks with hoards of staff members, a big budget, and ridiculous storylines like FouseyTube and several other notorious pranksters. Sure, Fousey makes bank, but his shelf life as a prankster is limited now that he’s becoming too recognizable after attacking people in elevators and repeatedly going viral.
These shampoo pranksters may not be in it for the long haul, either, but they sure pulled off an effective joke on some beachgoers who were hitting the showers. This shampoo prank reminds me of the camel toe prank due to the common charming simplicity. The ingredients were simple; a full shampoo bottle and a desire to wreak harmless havoc (other than the dreaded “shampoo in the eye,” but perhaps a no-tears formula played a role). The hilariousness of one particular victim — who lathers, rinses, and repeats furiously — will forever shine on in prank-bound history.
By the end of the video, the pranksters get busted, but one of them casually plays it off by hopping (fully dressed) into the beach shower. Now that’s a level of miserable commitment.
