Pranking Airport TSA Security! Are you CRAZY?

Pranking Airport Security!? Are you crazy!? That's exactly what magician and prankster Rich Ferguson did at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.

How can you pull of a public prank regarding "reporting suspicious activity" at an airport without being arrested? You see, there's "stupid edgy" pranks and there's "smart edgy" pranks...  "Stupid edgy" pranks put people in harm without any care, understanding or appreciation for people's safety or feelings. "Smart edgy" are pranks that appear to being going in an extreme direction, but have a twist that makes people smile, empowered or aware... and always leave them stoked to have been pranked in the first place.

This is the perfect prank. What had happened is the entire Chicago airport was shut down due to extreme weather. A plane that morning even had it's nose blown off by lightening but luckily landed safely. Some people had nowhere to go for over 28 hours. Thousands of people were stranded and upset but it didn't stop magician Rich Ferguson from making the most of it and bringing smiles to people's faces in what looked like one heck of a risky prank. This prank also helps put into perspective some issues pertaining to air travel. It's worth a look and definitely worth sharing.

Watch as airport TSA security and airline workers assume they are about to be hit with intel that involved something suspicious or dangerous... just to be tricked into a magical experience instead! You can see the tension release on the faces and the pure joy created:

Homeless Man Pays for Parking : Human Kindness Prank

What if a homeless man asked you, "Got Change?" then proceeded to PAY for your parking? This prank and social experiment video opens some eyes. It's amazing that if you give a little kindness, you'll get a whole lot more back.

In this unique social experiment, prankster/magician Rich Ferguson utilized a friend Erik Jones to execute another play on words type prank based on kindness, awareness and preconceived notions.

It's interesting to see that nearly everyone treated Erik as someone invisible and consistently told him they had "no money." However, after they are treated to parking and truly understood the question, "Got Change?" was directed to them and their needs, they lit up and truly LOOKED at Erik for the first time.

What was not shown in the video was the number of vehicles pulling into the empty parking spots, noticing Erik with a "Got Change?" sign then pulling right back out. Most of us just do not want to be bothered, harassed, solicited... we get it. What else was not shown were people hiding their belongings when they looked up and saw Erik outside their vehicle! We hope that approach, human kindness and not judging a book by it's cover prevailed in the message here.

Please enjoy the video and share it with everyone you know.
