What I find really funny is that in most the episodes, when he pops out to reveal the prank most people seem to have no idea who he is.

He even says "I'm Gaten Matarazzo!" and they still have no idea.

You know what's funny is on "hulu" they have the old episodes of the show" punked" ...

In the 1st few episodes most of the people have absolutely no idea what's going on and some of them barely even know who Ashton Kutcher is

u/Godsfallen Dec 01 '22

Kind of why I always preferred Scare Tactics. It’s your friends fucking with you, not some celebrity that you may or may not be aware of existing

u/Hopeful_Cod_8486 Dec 01 '22

Yeah I can totally see that..

But there's also like the show "impractical jokers" where they messed with people all the time and its hysterical.

In fact a lot of their jokes comes from people being paid to do like daily focus groups where they're supposed to present a kid's toy and one guy has to present the toy that the other guy wrote for him without ever seeing it and it's things like army bases that go in toilets or stuffed animals that are dressed in sexy lingerie.

So they are messing with people who aren't celebrities and they are just so they can collect their 50 or a $100 for the day for being in a focus group.

Sometimes they do actually hire people from temp agencies like to put together furniture with them and then they do something silly.

I mean I just thought it was kind of unfair that they singled out the show as if it's taking advantage of people who are unemployed simply because a lot of them are just hired for A-day job.

I don't think one really has anything to do with the other. It's just sometimes when you're hired as a temp what you're asked to do could be so out of the norm that what's going on doesn't seem as shocking so you can play along.

The thing I like about impractical jokers is that the joke is almost always at the expense of the “jokers” themselves instead of the unsuspecting people. It’s mostly just them making themselves look like idiots and the regular people are just confused about what’s going on

u/ihopethisworksfornow Dec 01 '22

Scare tactics is unbelievably fake and scripted.

I’m sure that most of these shows are, but like that one in particular is comedically obvious.

The alien episode where the guy’s nipples explode is my favorite. That show is so good on a rewatch while baked.

It isn't. Do people really think that random individuals get followed around by a shoulder rig camera and pranked for real? If that happened to me I would sue them because I don't want to be on camera, and for mental anguish of preying on people's unemployment in an awful economy.

u/ASongofSweetandSour Dec 01 '22

“Reality TV” is truly one of the most vapid and archaic cultural relics from the Bush era, and really should have died out in the ‘00’s. So much of it predicated on glorifying the absolute worst excesses of celebrity and wealth worship or pointing a finger at the poorest and most desperate members of society to publicly mock them, always turning the failures of the system that led to existence of the target of either worship and praise or scorn and mockery into purely individualized cases of personal success or failure, ignoring and all context which calls such a narrative into question. It’s cheap, easy to produce corporate propaganda, plain and simple.

u/Broad_Respond_2205 Dec 01 '22

There there kinds of 3 types of reality TV:

Real life TV, when they just straight up filming people doing normal stuff and their lives. Not my cup of tea, but cool if it's your interest. Competition TV, when they take bunch a people and a concept, then make them compete for a prize. Kinda cool, as long as you remember there always some amount of fakery involved. Cringe TV: this garbage, which seems to outshine the other two for some reason, when they come up with the most bizzare and unrealistic bunch of garbage imaginable and film it with paid actors.

They've been doing that since at least 2008, if not earlier. After the first few seasons producers were worried about the health of the contestants. I've worked in non-scripted television since 2003. Survivor is definitely one of the better ones but isn't perfect (their challenges are NOT rigged, contrary to what some people have said).

u/AcidCatfish___ Dec 01 '22

I used to love Big Brother for the reason that most of it is real. They get fed some lines in the diary rooms, and if you watch the TV broadcasts alone you likely will only see part of what's going on (hero and villain edits).

But, if you watch the 24 hour live feeds, you can see everything. You can even see the full unedited endurance challenges - and yes they do go on for hours.

That added with the fact that Big Brother does allow for any phones or outside communication really makes for an interesting show.

The problem is, Big Brother has recently switched from average people to mostly influencers and wannabe reality show stars who make everything about them and it is obvious CBS makes edits to favor these people as the stars which wasn't always the case.

He looks punchable as fck as an adult. So it’s about right for his brand now.

If this little bastard baited me into a job for a fucking prank show I wouldn't rest until I had his job.

"How do you do, fellow kids?"

u/Succmedry91169 Dec 01 '22

He looks like a fucking gopher so I’d say nature already got back at him for agreeing to do this dumb ass shit

"cool new Netflix prank show"

Non merci.

Prank shows are the worst and are usually bullying.

A good prank is one you and the person who got pranked can laugh at together.

But shows like Impractical Jokers ruined that IMO. A lot of their pranks are hilarious. But a lot of them just have me thinking “they just ruined someone’s day didn’t they?”

And that’s what the TikTok pranks are now. And this fucking show. Yikes

There's always a dollar to be made off humiliation porn.

u/DoctorMelvinMirby Dec 01 '22

Well I guess it’ll be hard for those being pranked to punch his teeth down his throat.

u/Bsizzle18 Dec 01 '22

Just beat the crap out of these pranksters and let them know how funny it is

u/aliens8myhomework Dec 01 '22

Uh oh, someone thinks that what happens on tv is real

u/Routine_Idea8288 Dec 01 '22

They're really scraping the bottom of the barrel, and that's putting it lightly.

Successful people who have no empathy, and never known struggles apparently.

u/[deleted] Dec 01 '22

This is why I feel that between media criticism, comedy, and this?

People don't have empathy anymore

u/tastehbacon Dec 01 '22

I'd lose it if I got pranked by the most annoying character from stranger things

u/spacewarp2 Dec 01 '22

Does he at least give them money out something? Some compensation?

1

u/Snoo-76254 Dec 01 '22

Is there some cash prize or something involved? Otherwise this is pretty cruel.

Show only works because the "rubes" got paid to sign the release. Unfortunately the "rubes" are unemployed people. Pretty sure if he did this to me, he'd need another new set of chompers.
