We here at Gravedigger’s Local 16 don’t subscribe to the notion of online pranks on April Fools’ Day. Sure, we thought about it from time to time, but things never panned out the way we wanted them to and we eventually abandoned the concept. That said, we figured that now would be a good time to pay tribute to one of the best horror-related pranks I have ever seen. Back in 2000, a brave prankster dressed up as Michael Myers and went to his local mall on Halloween and did some shopping while never breaking character. Thankfully, he had a friend on the inside who was able to recover the security tape and he (as krazetv) was able to upload the following:
But, as funny as this prank was, nobody should ever try replicating it. Times have changed and trying to buy anything (especially sharp objects) while wearing a mask and refusing to talk will only get you in trouble. In short: DON’T DO IT! We are only presenting this for entertainment purposes, not as a suggestion that others should do the same. Oh, and here’s a fun little fact about the prankster: he’s actually the founder of Notic Reign Records, best known here for my review of his spooky ambiance album and his appearances (as Darkmood and SDM) respectively on our podcast. Interested parties can also find him at the Myspace pages for Notic Reign Records, SDM and Darkmood. Check ’em out; you won’t regret it!
