Video: Band Pranks Are Just Fucking Dumb

Caitlin Upton is dumb too
When bands “prank” other bands, I usually just throw my arms up in the air, and say something like, “Why is that supposed to be fucking funny?”

The way I see it, a prank is not a prank unless there’s fear and danger involved. So when I saw this video of a “prank” being pulled on Between The Buried and Me during the final date of the band’s most recent run, I just felt like I wanted to wear heels and change my last name to Mina.

First of all, it’s just a bunch of dudes on stage, getting topless. So right there, that’s many demerits. What do the dudes — who are from Job For A Cowboy and The Ocean — do? They just run in a circle, flashing their man boobs.

The band doesn’t miss a beat, and looks mildly annoyed. As if these dudes don’t get enough attention, now they’ve gotta go run on stage during another band’s set and be dumb. I just don’t get why this is funny.
