This royal wedding souvenir mug from Guandong Enterprises Ltd. could be either of two things.

Or it could be something even more interesting: a cynical prank mocking outsourced manufacturing, cultural ignorance, and the globalized economy. [More]

Comedian Who Made Videos Asking For $1 Million And Got It… Was A Hoax

It sounded too good to be true: comedian Craig Rowin made a series of web videos asking for $1 million, and then he announced he had received it. A rich benefactor named “Benjamin” had seen the videos and was amused by them enough to hand over the cash. The videos went viral, Craig went on TV and international news teams were dispatching crews to cover his amazing story, which he maintained was completely real. Then at the end of the check-handing-over ceremony on Wednesday night, Rowin burned the check on stage and revealed it was all a hoax and the “investment banker millionaire” was an actor he had hired. Sorry, dreams. [More]

VIDEO: MS Office Rigged With Alarm (Candid Camera Prank)

In this video, a copy of Microsoft Office is rigged with a touch-sensitive alarm and a secret camera that tapes what happens when people around town try to pick it up. Usually they become extremely shocked and lose control of their muscles, dropping the box, shuddering, and even losing their balance. I can’t blame them, that Clippy scares the crap out of me too. Whether it’s just a straight up prank or some kind of anti-software piracy viral video, one thing is for sure: I am amused. [More]

Buy Yourself A Nose Job In A Can & A Bulimia Bar

Last week, people in New York started noticing some rather odd products showing up on the shelves of their local stores, like “Nose Job in a Can,” “Happiness” beer, “Bankos” cereal — featuring the logos of AIG, BofA, Chase, Citi and others — and the misspelled, but very Snickers-like “Bulemia” candy bar.

Hoax Dave Matthews Concert Shames Macy's

Hoax Dave Matthews Concert Shames Macy's

Macy’s got punked. The fliers announced performances in Missoula, Montana, by Dave Matthews Band and other bands as a special “reinvesting in the community” “Goodbye Celebration” by Macy’s and Smurfit-Stone, two longtime businesses that had recently shut down and laid off hundreds of workers while top company executives received millions in bonuses. But Dave and his band would not be there, nor would Michael Franti or Slightly Stoopid. Nor the Mayor or the Governor. And there definitely would be no $5,000 prize drop. It was all a hoax hatched by angry ex-employees trying to draw attention to the negative economic impact the businesses’ departures would have on the community. [More]

We wrote about this last year, but didn’t realize that the interface has fantastic potential for pranks. And that’s how a laid-off car dealership employee was allegedly able to disable the ignitions of more than 100 cars purchased from the dealership. Or set off their horns in the middle of the night.
