A raptor prank on a game show has quickly gone viral. WSB Radio reports on Aug. 28 that the video of a dinosaur chasing a Japanese man down an office hallway has been posted on YouTube. More than a million people have already viewed the video.
The prank was played on several people in a Japanese office. Although the video focuses on one man, there are brief shots of other workers screaming and running from the raptor. The unidentified man is first seen carrying a cup of coffee and a bag as he calmly walks down a hallway. Then, he notices the dinosaur, a group of people running from him and drops the coffee before trying to get away. The man trips several times and seems genuinely terrified. He eventually makes it down the corridor as the velociraptor continues the chase.
It seems all of the office workers missed that the dinosaur was wearing a pair of jeans. If they had stopped to look at his legs, then they would have noticed a pair of men’s jeans chasing them. It is surprising that a fake velociraptor was able to fool an entire office. Some viewers are wondering if the entire office was aware of the prank and simply pretended to be scared.
The exact name of the Japanese television show has not been provided, but it appears to be a game show built around pranks. The hosts can be seen on the side of the video in a box as they laugh at the office worker.
