Prank scares got an extra boost this past Halloween week as online audiences sought out viral videos that would provide thrills and frights. YouTuber SA Wardega, who has had video success in the past with his scare tactics, led the prank wars with his Zombie Apocalypse Halloween Prank. Undead actors gobbled up fake body parts and chased unsuspecting bystanders, giving them the shock of their life. The video has been viewed 7.2 million times since it was published on Oct. 30.
Other notable videos on the list include RomanAtwood's Killer Toddler Prank and RémiGAILLARD's Halloween Prank. For Killer Toddler Prank, Atwood enlisted the help of his young son, who donned a creepy mask and carried a knife while chasing members of the public. The Halloween Prank involved three random psychopathic hitchhikers who would best be left on the side of the road. The videos received 3.6 million and 5.3 million views respectively, but RomanAtwood's got the edge on this list because his video had double the amount of likes.
