While we'd never recommend leaving a crying baby on a bench, hidden video prankster Jack Vale shows us in his new video just how funny it is when people think you have.
You might remember Vale's previous pranks, like the one where he speaks nonsense to strangers , but this latest one is even more daring. Vale places an iPhone playing crying baby noises (and old man mask for shock value) inside a baby carrier, covers it with a blanket and places it on a public bench. As concerned citizens pass by, notice the baby and look for the parents, some great reactions are caught on tape after they lift the blanket.
Watch the video above and see below for more funny hidden camera pranks.

Ever thought about how disturbing it would be for a stranger to narrate your life without your consent? It's even more than you might think.
In society, we have mores that dictate that language is meaningful in context. Jack Vale proves that out of context, however, it's hilarious.

Riding in a packed elevator with strangers can be awkward, so obviously the next best thing is to ensure it's a hundred times more uncomfortable for everyone by doing a fart prank. (Also from Jack Vale Films.)
Blue Tooth A-Hole
As if we needed another reason to think that people talking on their Bluetooth headset in public are the worst, this guy really drives the point home.
Free Hugs Competitor
Hey, this is America, where no one is entitled to handouts. The "free hugs" guys are just making it hard for people trying to make an honest wage with their hugs.
"Do-Re-Mi" Flash Mob
Pranks can often be kind of mean. But this video of a choreographed flash mob to a "Sound of Music" number in a Belgian bus station gives us hope for humanity (or at least for Belgium).
When it comes to caroling, go big or go home. At least that's the philosophy exhibited by this troupe, who are not swayed in their caroling mission even after the cops are called on them.
