The “Werewolf in a taxi” Cab Ride Prank might be fake, but I don’t care

A. Quinton — Apr. 23rd 2013

One of the many things we talked about on last week’s Howl Out Cast podcast was the Cab Ride Prank video, a 3-minute hidden camera prank clip by¬†BlackBoxTV. The setup is simple: a taxi driver who looks a little bit like Steve Brule has a “werewolf incident” while transporting two unsuspecting ladies. The ladies, who look like they just want to go to The Keg, are not well-pleased. Here, for your consideration and amusement, is that video.

Some of the Youtube commenters are complaining that the video is “fake” in the sense that the ladies in the back seat are actors, and that the whole thing is too orchestrated to be a legit prank. My response to that is: you’re probably right, but who cares, ya dingus? It’s three minutes of goofy, scary fun! Thanks to Werewolf News reader¬†Karsten for sending me the link.

    I was curiuos about this when they talk about it on the podcast! Looks like the brazilian prank (that was also mentioned) “ghost girl on the elevetor”, on that case the persons were hired, but they only know that they would participate in some kind of television show, maybe this is the same thing? Anyway I found this funny, yes, but is crude humor, I’m ok with that, but some won’t be. I have to agree though, like they said on the podcast, it could turned out very differently and perhaps with not such a “happy ending”…

    Yeah, what if they were conceal and carrying? Might have ended badly. But the video did make me laugh.
