Jack Vale’s Video Pranks
January 11, 2011

If you haven't heard of sketch comedian Jack Vale, today's the day. Jack randomly approaches people while they shop and does a bit. I like his "nonsense" and "paranoia" skits.

In this video, he pretends to speak to someone on a cell phone and repeats everything the shoppers are doing. Check out how they react.

In this video, he just speaks total nonsense to strangers. In the first part, he actually convinces a guy in a supermarket to put back his tartar sauce because of snowy grapes and unforeseen skydivers.

What would your reaction be if this guy was following you around, repeating your every move?
