Prankster channels Bart Simpson for school board reunion prank
Video of unknown prankster turning a Virginia school board meeting into an episode of The simpsons goes viral.
Earlier this week, a Henrico school board meeting derailed when member Roscoe D. Cooper III unwittingly called out a list of puny names written for the open comments section. As The HuffPost and all Twitter quickly realized it, Phil McCracken, Eileen Dover, Wayne Kuhr, Don Kedick and Ophelia McCaulk were unfortunately not present.
In fact, these were fake names submitted by an unknown genius who apparently watched too many iconic Bart Simpson prank calls at Moe’s tavern on the The simpsons.
Despite this, Cooper did his best to read the names correctly, which resulted in some perfect double meanings.
No one has admitted to submitting the names yet, but they really deserve a price. Find out below.
Here are some examples of the master himself at work.
Of course, Twitter had a field day with the video. Many users tweeted to weigh in on the epic prank. A tweet called Cooper for going through so many names before realizing he had been a punk. Another called the joke “classic”.
“It appeals to my sophisticated comedy palate,” they added. “You just made my day”, another tweeted. Others have commented on some of the best names that have been said out loud. A user even said they felt like a celebrity because it happened in their hometown.
The viral video spread to other conversations taking place on Twitter. One user mentioned it in response to a video of a woman threatening school board members at another meeting. After recognizing the woman’s dark message, they found a positive way to look to the future. “Did you see the clip where the kids gave city council a bunch of Bart Simpson prank names in the public comments list,” they asked. “Maybe everything will be fine”
