Stolen Babies and Home Abductions: This Agency's Prankvertising Is Absolute Hell on Earth John St. spoofs hot new trend

No one is better than John St. at lampooning the absurdities of the advertising business. First, the Toronto agency parodied case studies, then catvertising. Now, it sets its sights on the latest flavor du jour, prankvertising, in this brilliant and hilarious spoof video.

Think falling meteors and telekinetic girls are scary? Try being snatched from your bed at night by actual criminals. Try having your baby stolen from you in a park in broad daylight. Now that's marketing you won't forget.

In addition to the spoof, the agency also produced full videos of the fake stunts. Check out all the videos below. Via @Disco_Chicken.
