Black Friday Prank: Fake Target Employees Confuse Shoppers (VIDEO)

A pair of jokesters from Prank vs. Prank pulled a fast one on some unsuspecting Target shoppers this Black Friday.

From the YouTube video, which in less than two days has earned over three million views:

For the craziest shopping day of the year, Black Friday, we dressed up like employees from a store, to fool customers into thinking we worked there.

The nondescript, red polo-wearing Jesse and Ryan feigned incompetence, offered free goods, and even promised shady deals "out back."

It wasn't the first time a Target has been pranked on Black Friday. Last year, Greg Benson and Ryan Smith of Mediocre Films each wrote a list of ridiculous, made-up items and then tried to get Target employees to find them, according to Mashable.

Another Black Friday prank this year didn't go over so well. According to Fox, someone dropped a trash can from the upper level of a Dallas-area shopping mall, creating a loud noise that some shoppers confused with gunfire. Police were called to Town East Mall, where at least one person was led away in handcuffs.
