Youtubers are becoming more daring and dangerous with their pranks over the recent months, blinded by the promising Youtube fame.

As pranks become one of the most viewed genre of videos online, youtubers strive to make the best prank video, for views of course. Anything is worthy of becoming a prank to up and coming youtubers from “pretending” to hurt family members to damaging the reputation of others.

YouTubers, such as Jake Paul and Mike Martin who is DaddyofFive, are uploading ridiculous and unimaginable videos and calling them pranks. DaddyofFive has uploaded videos linked to child abuse. He’s thrown his children into dressers and even body slammed them, all in the name of a prank video.

“If youtubers are going to prank someone they should make sure it won’t harm anyone,” sophomore Andi Mendoza said. “And that there won’t be any long term effects.”

YouTube pranks not only consist of others’ injuries but also slandering other youtubers. In a recent scandal youtuber Faze Banks was accused of assaulting youtuber Jake Paul’s assistant. Evidence says otherwise,with speculation that Jake Paul’s assistant confessed to the assault in order to gain views and subscribes for Paul. Faze Banks is even considering filing a lawsuit.

“Youtubers who do this should be punished since it’s a serious issue,” Junior Emely Felix said. “They’re going too far.”

YouTubers aren’t all to blame for this madness since people want to see and watch high scale pranks. If viewers stopped watching these types of videos then maybe youtubers might stop producing them. A good prank is a good prank not because of some scandal or injury of others.

“Before it was just a pie in the face, or pulling down someone’s pants,” Senior Alana Cush said. “But now it’s progressed.”
