1. The Ding Dong Door Ditch
Hilarious every time. The dog get some points here for being a good guard dog, but this is the third time his human has done it. Less points because it is being performed by a human, not a dog.
3. The Snack Time Disappointment
So, this is kind of brilliant: Carl, the bigger dog here, put the snack just out of reach of his little brother, Bernard. Carl then walks up and takes it likes it’s no big deal. While a funny and new take on glueing a quarter to the sidewalk, points have been docked for being a little mean.
4. The Fake Forcefield
This is creative and no one gets hurt. It involves a lot of groundwork: The small dog has had to show the big dog an actual glass door for the past few weeks, leading up to this very moment when it is taken out without the big dog knowing.
Prank Rank: 8
5. The Classic Prank Phone Call
This actually never gets old, and this dog shows clear skill. He’s not even giggling, which is definitely the hardest part of prank phone calling.
6. The Ol’ Paw Swap
Simple yet startling. All around great gag.
Prank Rank: 8
7. The Drag and Stand
This one, while hilarious, gets docked a point because it makes people worry at first. However, his commitment to his craft is absolutely stunning.
Prank Rank: 9
8. The Prankster Becomes the Prankee
No points given to the human who was a huge jerk. All points given to the dog who turned the tables, remained cool, and then made sure his friend was OK. While not a hugely thought-out prank, extra points given for thinking on his paws and general sportsmanship.
9. The Bait and Switch
This prank takes tapping someone’s shoulder and moving to a new level because it involves a clear gain for the pranker. Just a simple distraction and the little guy gets his food. If he keeps this up, the confusion of the big dog will be even funnier when all his food is gone much faster than he anticipated.
10. The Boop n Run
This prank loses points because it’s only funny if a dog does it. However, because it is a dog, it is comes from a silly, harmless place of just wanting to boop and run. Well done, friend.
11. New Teeth
LOLOL This pug told his friends he got punched in the mouth and had to get new teeth. Extra points for backstory and follow through. Plus, he looks great.
Prank Rank: 7
12. The Monster Self
So, this gets less points because it is a human, but this is a great prank for those that don’t quite understand 3D.
Prank Rank: 4
13. The Ball Teeth Gag
While not as good as the pug’s fake teeth, this is a very charming trick that requires some skill. Humans can achieve this look, replacing tennis balls with grapes. Some extra points because this guy showed us his method.
Prank Rank: 6
14. The Microphone Vacuum Switcharoo
This prank was done by a dog off camera. He told his friend he got a new mic for their band practice and then BOOM it was a vacuum. Hilarious for all parties involved.
Prank Rank: 8
15. The Now-Ya-See-It-Now-Ya-Don’t
This is disorienting for the prankee (which is always a good thing) and requires some effort. Less points because the gag wears off after about three seconds.
