There are pranks, there are epic pranks and then there’s this. While most pranksters are happy to trick just one or two people at a time, some think bigger. Maybe a train carriage or bus full of people…? Pffft! That’s nothing. The dudes behind Model Pranksters thought they’d go one better and attempt The Ultimate Prank: Fool the whole of New York City. Well, okay – not all of it. But a good slice of it. How? By rolling out the red carpet and introducing The 44th President of the United States of America, Mr. Barack Obama. Complete with an entourage of security, his appearance got the crowd up into a frenzy; they were going WILD. But there was only one thing… It wasn’t really him.
