Casey Neistat Goes Crazy Viral for Chasing Pikachu Through NYC
We just can’t quit you, Casey Neistat. We covered his first ever prank just two weeks ago, and his guest appearance in the video of the What’s Inside channel cutting open Yeezy shoes last week. But Casey Neistat isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
His latest stunt video features him chasing “Pikachu” (actually fellow YouTube creator Shonduras in a Pikachu costume) through the crowded streets of New York City. They run, skateboard, and wrestle their way through the Big Apple, entertaining passersby — but not the cops. Here’s the original video:
The thing I love most about this video is its bizarro, whack-a-doodle soundtrack. I don’t know where they got the upbeat Japanese tune, or what the hell they’re saying (though I’m pretty sure I made out the names of a few Pokémon), but it matches the video perfectly.
The only thing I don’t like about this video is that Neistat claims in the description that he got “ARRESTED” for pulling this stunt. Here’s a screenshot, in case the description changes:
The video he links is this behind-the-scenes clip, in which you can plainly see he doesn’t get arrested. What’s the deal, big fella? Why you lyin’?
Arrested or no, this is one hell of a video. I can’t wait to see how Neistat tops himself next.
What do you think? Would you still play Pokémon Go if this is what it looked like? Let us know in the comments below or @WhatsTrending on Twitter!
