Welcome to Japan, Where Dinosaurs Run Around Pranking People [VIDEO]

Fine, fine, it’s just a guy in a dinosaur costume. Good thing, too. I don’t think the prankee would do too well in a legit Jurassic Park-type situation.

Must go faster. Must go faster.

    It’s amazing to me–the power of suggestion. He didn’t even notice the two human legs sticking out of the bottom. I don’t blame him. That set up with the people screaming before the dinosaur is introduced–genius!

  • Patrick Denny

    It’s funny because it’s not me.

  • Nicole Elizabeth Currie

    Honestly, I wouldn’t be sticking around to get a better look, because better safe than sorry when dinosaur chases are involved.

    Despite the human legs, that is a terrifyingly good dinosaur costume. I have a lot of work to do for my next cosplay…

    *dies laughing* Only in Japan. :D Oh my gods, that kills me.

    I think it also helps that the leggings were roughly the same color as the carpet, whereas the costume was distinctly different.

    @AnnaB: Yes, and also how the dinosaur looks around the corner before his legs can be seen. The motion there is very realistic. I’d like to be able to say that *I* wouldn’t fall for it, and immediately start whimpering and wetting myself, but… I’m not so sure.

    Exactly. Only in Japan are they willing to risk scaring someone to death (remember the flash mob prank?) or subject them to a likelihood of physical harm and humiliation (remember the rocket-powered sauna chair?) for the sake of a joke. Bless those crazy Nipponese.

    I… NEED one of those suits!

  • LifeLessons

    I would freak. And then be really angry I didn’t have a gun on me. :)

  • Christopher LaHaise

    Yeah, definitely don’t do this in the US. Japan? Canada? Sure thing. :)

    One of the other people caught by this prank was Kaba-Chan, Japanese celebrity, dancer and choreographer. He’s currently starring in the latest Kamen Rider show Kamen Rider Wizard, as the owner of a donut cart. The cool thing is that like Kaba-Chan in real life, his character on the show is gay, and a cross-dresser, and they don’t make a big thing about it at all. He’s awesome.
