Basketball Pump Prank Makes People Think They’re Watching A Sexual Act In Public (Video)
We’ve already told you today how the perfectly innocent-looking 2012 Olympic mascots have been viewed by some people as, um, less than innocent.
Well, here’s another story about how perfectly innocent, totally not perverted activities can sometimes be misinterpreted.
Internet sketch comedy troupe “Sketch Empire” recently did a little bit in which two people—sometimes two guys, sometimes a guy and a girl—go out in public with a deflated basketball and a pump, and trick people into thinking they’re seeing a form of manual assistance that belongs in the bedroom. As people walk by, they have disgusted (and sometimes terrified) looks on their faces until they realize they’ve been duped, Candid Camera-style.
The title of the two-part video is “Epic Ball Pump Prank.” I don’t know if I’d call it “epic,” but it’s definitely amusing and worth a look.

Now, in case you’re wondering, yes, this is the kind of humor you can expect to see on a regular basis from “Sketch Empire.” After all, this is how they describe themselves on their website:
“Sketch Empire brings you hot and heavy loads of Comedy every week. Each Tuesday morning we upload our biggest and best video ever. Our group plows you in the face with pure comedic aluminum (we are not good) leaving you with the best facial you’ve ever had.“
So…yeah, you get the picture.
