15 Hilarious Examples of why the Japanese are the World’s Best Pranksters 0 Doing pranks or locally known as dokkiri in Japan has been a favorite form of entertainment from their local TV to Youtube.

Some are staged and some are well-planned to freak out random people. Aren’t these pranks too cruel? Hmm… for the Japanese, maybe not. It’s pretty much another normal day. Another normal day indeed, like when you’re… getting primped up crossing the street drinking on a water fountain going to work taking the elevator having a smoke break walking on your way home feeding your dog getting your hair cut in the salon getting pampered at the spa looking at the mirror while waiting going for lunch in a restaurant going for a medical check-up bonding with your sibling or when you just want to try out some new Japanese technology in ordering pizzas in America. Everything’s normal in Japan. Don’t be surprised.
