    Hi. We`re a couple of dickheads who can barely put a sentence together. We`re here to demonstrate an unoriginal prank that`s been around for at least a century, but in a new place! A shopping mall! WOW! Get your antlers in place, because we`re fishing for attention again.

    Herma... they`re not really dickheads, i mean, they didn`t do anything wrong. It`s just messing with peoples heads, and it`s kinda funny, the power of suggestion.

    WHERE THE HELL IS THE ROPE? ah, nobody would just pretend to hold rope... they must have rope!"
    "oh great, now they are going to be holding up traffi... did that truck just drive through it? poo THEY ARE FAKING!"

    @Hermanoid: Right on bro! We used to refer to that as "the old rope trick". It was stupid and lame when my friends and I used to do it in High School... 25 years ago!

    Personally, I still find it hard to believe that people fall for it.

    did this about 2 months ago, 1/4 got pissed and stopped, 1/4 got pissed but did not stop 1/4 smiled and drove right on and 1/4 stopped and stared at the air for 20 seconds until risking to slowly move past that magical rope.

    A couple of kids in my neighborhood tried this on me while I rode my bike. Thinking my intellect far passed theirs, and knowing of this trickery, I peddled on past. This story ended with four very bloody hands and about 10 meters of fishing line tangled in my chain. They showed me.

    The road one was a good way of making other people think your a twat. I don`t know why they`d want that, but I hope their plan pays off eventually and someone pisses in their coffee (or whatever else they`re hoping for).

    The mall one didnt work for them because you can easily see theres no rope or wire, or at least have the option of "stepping over it", so that`s jst a bit of "wtf" fun for everyone. They will have to think of another way to come across as dickheads to random strangers.

    I would not have fallen for this... if it`s invisible, what can it be? Fishing line? Even then I can just walk through it.

    I would have walked past with a laugh and a "You Suck"

    If you say banana backwards and really slowly it sounds like gullible.

    i remember when i was about 12 or so, me and 2 buddies played this. first car that came up, the guy slams on his breaks and yells at us "YOU WANNA GET YOUR dratING HEADS KNOCKED OFF!?" and he continued to yell profanities at us for the next 5 mins. needless to say, it was hilarious (but a bit terrifying)
