When he’s not putting minimal effort into being a celebrity spokesman, Jonah Hill is just like you and me. He hangs out with friends (who happen to be multimillionaire Oscar winners). He gets surprised (by people who happen to be multimillionaire Oscar winners). He likes big hugs (with multimillionaire Oscar winners).
In this video captured by the creepiest-sounding paparazzo East of the Mississippi, Jonah Hill stands around on a busy NYC street. Suddenly, a man in a blue shirt runs up to him with his phone aloft, presumably so he can snap pictures of Jonah Hill, thus capturing his soul. Hill appears ready to absorb a tackle from this mystery man, or perhaps fight him. But lo! The man in the blue shirt is actually Hill’s pal Leonardo DiCaprio! All is well, and all live happily ever after.
Here’s the original video:
If you watch the video on mute, it seems like a fun, harmless prank. But if you watch it with the sound on, you quickly understand why it has a 10:1 dislike-to-like ratio. Whoever is taking the video seems to be taking near-sexual pleasure in the prank, as evidenced by how he says “NICE NICE NICE NICE NICE” in the same tone of voice most people reserve for the bedroom or particularly tasty enchiladas.
What do you think? Is this prank cute and fun, or did the videographer’s voice ruin it for you? Let us know in the comments below or @WhatsTrending on Twitter!
