Justin Bieber Cone-Ing Prank: Too Far? (VIDEO, POLL)

The more we see videos of "cone-ing", the creepier the nascent trend seems. To refresh your memory, cone-ing entails driving up to a drive-through restaurant, ordering a cone of soft-serve ice cream, then grabbing the wrong end of the cone when the drive-through attendant tries to hand it to you. It's messy. And unlike planking, to which is often compared, cone-ing involves an unwitting victim in the drive-through attendant.

That's why we were hesitant when we saw Justin Bieber tweet a video of himself cone-ing at a couple drive-throughs. As it turns out, the cone-ing went just fine, but there were some other not-so-nice moments in the video. Why, Bieber, do you abuse your powers so? Didn't you see Spiderman? Also: what's with the earring?

Watch the video, and decide for yourself whether you think Bieber's prank was funny, mean or both.
