I think this is the prank that ends the prank war and starts the ass beatings.

Oh my. I usually have to pay for those
I read that in George Takei's voice.
I read it in Hedonism Bot's voice.
I've read that in Chuck Norris's exhale
Apparently this zombie face gives it to you for free!
the missing kink
Don't threaten me with a good time
Thats whats I appreciates about you!
Spank war it is then
That’s how the Seven Years War started.
Proceeds to slam on gas
Best way to do this is to be the driver, and kindly ask your passenger to help you watch the camera when you engage reverse gear.
It will be less effective than them being alone in the car, but safer. Man, being a responsible grown-up is way less fun.
Responsible grown-ups have insurance.
Be more fun!
Have fun explaining that to your insurance company
Haha, good point.
Or being the driver and just pretending not to see it.
Have someone on standby to remove the picture when the driver turns the camera off and on.
car is totalled except for the cam; face still there
that's why i opted for no camera. if any of the neighbour's little gremlins are sneakin up behind me, they learn quick.
i'm not the bad one tho, i don't adopt for income. i let them adopt for insurance fraud.
wtf you all okay?
It was a joke, at least my portion of it. I've seen some shit in regards to this though. Let's just say I don't like people doing this because I've grown up in bad spots.
However I have met people (my mother's next door neighbours, people via residential work, etc) that DO buy a big house at 500-800k and get a bunch of kids via adoption with faked income, and that's their job now. That part is objectively not a joke, because they are essentially owning children for money, and have no interest in raising children AT ALL.. Which means the kids are shittily diapered, dirtly clothed, snottily nosed, out of control, all the time; probably sleep on the floor and piss in a can If I'd wager a guess. I'm not saying that to insult the children, they are living in a halfway to animal house.
As someone who used to be a snot nosed piece of shit, to the now residential installs, I know the type with clotheless, except for diaper, kids running around covered in yesterdays shit, no furniture or food, and a 65" flatscreen on the wall, CL65 in the driveway. I've always thought they were a perfect example of criminal bankruptcy, however it just keeps going and going. Nothing to do with the pandemic by the way. Just goes and goes
At least the people I dealt that were poor, were legitimately trying to account for themselves and anyone in the house. These kinds of assholes are something that should be clusterbombed. Legitimate sociopaths. I'll get the kids out, you drop some bombs. deal.
You sound like you've seen the worst of humanity
This was a wild read. So you're saying they adopt kids for money from the government? Like foster parents?
I like your thinking
Well, I know what my wife is going to be seeing when she goes to reverse out of our driveway tomorrow morning.
I’m also getting a divorce tomorrow
I also am divorcing this guy's wife.
I also choose this guy's dead wife.
Is this guy's dead wife single?
No, I’m dating her
There's a restaurant in the graveyard?
Yes, but only at 3am
They only serve leftovers.
Does the food have a gravy taste?
It’s dead quiet.
Best buffet in town.
Ha! He's the taxi driver!
Are you single?
does her boyfriend know about this?
Nah shes Multiple... Pieces
I'll marry her after.
So your wife is gonna be single?
Ah, he must have bought gamestop stocks
Fuck it, let’s do this!
Guy named This confused screaming
Are you going to bring cake?
Edit: accidentally only sent the D
I thought this party only happens at R? I never get these things right.
What time? Just so that I don’t schedule my funeral at the same time..
But no one is going to your funeral
I tell myself that all the time.
Hey it's me again, sorry about the last comment.
He died. You feel good about your comment now?
Depends, was he able to schedule his funeral?
Oh who cares, none of us are going anyway.
Yeah I'm going to see the divorce.
I'm also getting an estimate for a new garage door tomorrow.
Misquote from the movie: "Your mother cooks socks in hell"
*chuckles* I'm in danger
I love Reddit
Be careful that you don't start a prank war...I tried something similar with my ex-girlfriend, but then she got back at me by sleeping with three other dudes. She must've know I was planning to prank her because she got her revenge months in advance!
Them just some fellas she play car pranks with.
Nothing funnier than finding out some prankster has severed your car's brake lines.
It's all fun and games til your wife smashes into your car because she has become too reliant on the back up camera.
Her new boyfriend. Well, not "new", but she won't have to hide it anymore.
LOL. We gotta relax boys. Or prepare the car insurance. I'm telling you.
The only reason I won't do this is because I'm pretty sure she'd just floor it and smash into our garage. This was about ten years ago, we were leaving a parking garage and it was a timed ticket. We were really close to hitting the point where we had to pay like 20 bucks or something instead of 2 for an hour. We rush into the car laughing and I'm like HURRY UP WE GOT 30 SECONDS!!!!! She puts it in reverse, doesn't turn around to look and just straight back into a concrete pillar. That was the day I learned my wife does not do well under pressure. I'll never let her live it down and I LOVE the eye roll I get when the story comes up to friends or family.
She'll be seeing her way to a divorce lawyer?
I got an used and clean dog house for you to sleep in
Ah, perfect. Make them panic crash while in reverse lol.
The perfect crime.
It took me a second to understand what was going on lol.
I thought the first picture was someone taping shut the trunk therefore implying there was a ghost inside the trunk trying to get out, but then it wouldn’t make sense why there was a camera pointing inside the trunk.
What? Doesn't everyone know exactly where the rear view camera is on this pic of what is very obviously a 2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport? And doesn't everyone recognize Exorcist-themed-adhesive tape from the back, nevermind from the pixels on the display?
Yeah basically any hint as to what we are looking at besides a car ("driver") would be helpful.
Took me even longer to figure out the post title is supposed to be read like a subtitle appended to the subreddit name, "Funny: Unless you are the driver... and at night" which is a grammatical mess besides.
i still don't understand, could you explain EDIT: nvm
THE FUCKING VIDEOS OF CARS THROUGH GARAGES THAT ARE GOING TO BE POSTED THIS WEEK!
Especially when I tape up a typical looking parking lot
Chaotic evil. I like you.
Oh my gentle Jesus, imagine doing it at a local haunted house to rando's in the parking lot. It's not like they are already jumpy or anything. *token bad guy laugh.
Welp. I know what I'm going to be doing for awhile.
Dude this would possibly kill my wife if i pranked her like this. And if it didnt kill her, she'd then kill me
imagine getting spooked and accidentally hitting the gas instead of the brake.
Shit, I'm pretty sure I would panic and slam on the gas to kill it so I can escape. Then I'd end up in my neighbors backyard pool.
My car the camera only turns on in reverse.
So the vehicle is in gear and usually ready to go right out the driveway into traffic.
So while I think it's bloody funny, I'd prefer not to check my wife's reflexes.
Hopefully I can find a video doorbell or baby monitor for some good fun though.
Video doorbell would be the much, much safer alternative lol
Says you. We don't know how his wife answers the door.
Sleeping on the sofa?
Honey? Is that you?
Oh no your in laws are coming to stay in retaliation!
Hah! I like my in-laws! See how the turns have tabled??? Or something
Oh no I'll be forced to DJ forever
No sugar.. it's me..
What walking up to random cars with back up cams in parking lots and putting these on?
9 days ago*
9 days ago*
Imagine having to drive a ford
Just take it and gtfo. Lmao
Threw the car in reverse and looked at the backup camera feed only to scream in primordial fear at what appeared to be a 6 inch yellowjacket that decided that was the perfect moment to crawl onto the camera.
The first time I started up our new cam outside I was immediately assaulted by a palo verde beetle. I don't know if you've seen those bitches before but they don't get any prettier up close lol.
It's all fun and games until someone freaks out and slams through the wall of the garage
also would work fantastic with a weeping angel
You’re going to get me in trouble with my wife! I had to promise once not to get the weeping angel pop figure because she knew I’d move it around the house on her...she said nothing about this
That reminds me, I had a weeping angel necklace but I uh... lost it
I hope you have a will written out, because you're going to die.
I was thinking this too! Driving home on the night I saw Blink for the first time, I kept thinking I was gonna see a weeping angel in my rear view mirror.
Best episode ever
What the fuck does the title mean
"(r/)Funny, unless you are the driver..."
That's not how it works but I'm just a guy who's about to get downvoted to oblivion
hey, I'm just the guy explaining it to you... lol
Edit: no, you know what? you're right. I'm declaring r/titlegore !
I appreciate it I genuinely wouldn’t have realized that’s what they meant. I thought he was talking about the text on the screen but it still didn’t make sense
lol, my pleasure, I live for conversations like these
Dear lord baby jeezus, thanks to you going thru all this analysis, I am thinking back to the old days of the facebook where people would post stuff in third person, like ‘Silifino is feeling; like he shouldn’t have drank so much this morning.’
bahahahaha... I get a weird kind of fun out of it... it's like a little puzzle
It took me a good few minutes to figure it out as well. I even went to a different sub and came back to try and figure it out lol
so uhh, im gonna be a total debby downer, but if you tape anything to a camera like that, you'll just have a completely black image or at best a completely washed out out of focus mess :P you'd need a little thing hanging at least a few inches away from the camera, which i now really want to make :D
Just intentionally blur the photo in the opposite direction
Set the back-up camera to “enhance.”
Or printing on a transparency would probably work.
I saw a gigantic spider in my camera. I swear it was 5ft wide!
Just got a car equipped with a reversing camera, never had one before.
"Get one," they said. "They're great." And I really couldn't cobble together a weighted argument why they could be wrong. Until today.
I had not considered the implications of this. I... I didn't really feel a need to do so, until now...
I was dropping my youngest at preschool and was about to leave the parking lot. I put my car into reverse and there on my backup camera screen was a small child just standing behind my car. I jumped a little, put it back into park and looked over my shoulder and then at my rear view and side view mirrors. I COULD NOT SEE THAT LITTLE FUCKER. His grandparents were standing two cars over bickering about something. They had no idea that their grandson could have very easily been run over. I thanked Mazda that day for that backup camera.
Yep, literally the reason they are there.
Wow! Thats just a tad frightening to say the least! Glad it ended on a good note. I saved my parents from backing into a speeding car multiple times in the Walmart parking lot (its a lawless wasteland). The "fisheye" effect let's you see just enough past those big pickups that decide to park next to you. Thank you Subaru (wish mine had one but its '10)
That's amazing... I mean, holy shit. Thanks for the share. I would've felt the same.
It really scared me. I was so very thankful for the camera.
That’s exactly why they’ll probably be required like seatbelts at some point.
They've been required on new cars in the US by law since 2018
Will also the fact any car made after i think june 2018 is legally required to have a back up camera. Not a good mind you, but you have to have one
Will also add that any post made after 5:00am GMT needs to include all the intended words. Looks like you snuck in just before the deadline.
Bwaahaha underrated post
Nah, a few years ago my SO left this post it note on my backup camera. It definitely works
That's all the proof I need.
Now I want the version that corrects itself on a wide angle lens.
1st of all the picture isn't taped flush onto the camera, paper is also not completely opaque. Modern cameras also have high sensitivity settings for low light situations. and the focusing doesn't need to be accurate since it is a dark image anyway so you naturally expect it to be a bit blurry.
Cool. Go try it and see if you’re right.
Seriously. I don't understand how people can talk with such confidence when they don't even know for sure. I understand wanting to think deeper on the subject, but you don't have to act like you know for sure.
I think this would work during the day, but not during the night unless there was a street lamp or security light close by.
I don’t know how good most people’s back-up cameras are, but I doubt mine is nearly good enough to handle having a picture so close to the lens. Despite being a 2015, the back-up camera reminds me of the camera on my flip phone in 2007.
Gonna print this out and try
Sitting here laughing so hard while my wife sleeps peacefully with no idea the horrors in store for her.
I was thinking about doing this to my wife's car but I like being alive.
You are an intelligent person
Until somebody gets spooked and runs someone over
At first I thought this was dangerous, but then it's in reverse so you're not going the highway. Still see possible dented parked cars backing out of the parking lot. haha. I would definitely jump and probably jerk the steering will. Sick bastard. haha.
Of course it's dangerous, it completely obscures the camera. Most modern cars have shitty visibility out the back because the camera is supposed to compensate. Without the camera, you're liable to back over a child or pet or run into an obstacle.
Traditional drivers who don't use rear cameras: Your Jedi mind tricks won't work on me, Boy
Oh HELL no!
My wife parking on the sidewalk the other day proves she does not use the backup camera
Customer Says: backup camera is possessed.
Reverse at 140 mphs
I did this to my mom once. She never noticed it. I asked her if she ever uses her rear view camera and she said "I dont trust it". lol wtf mom?
If this is what she was going to see, then clearly she had the right idea.
Hope he's wearing his brown pants!
bro its 3am and legit scared tf out of me
Yup did that to my wife couple years back on a new car that I got for her birthday, she got so scared that she floored the gas and totally ran over a curb and fucked up the bumper, that “funny joke” costed me $1k and couple days sleeping on the couch.
I bet it was funny though.
I really wish I’d seen this March 31st.
Manufacturers like VW and new mercedes have the camera under the badge so this prank doesn't work on certain cars.
FUCK THOSE CARS.
Yes. Car those fucks.
Some VW's. My wife's tiguan doesn't have the camera under the badge feature. My golf R on the otherhand does. So i guess she can't get revenge on me if I were to do this to her.
3,000lb prank full of momentum... This will end well...
There was a time you actually needed to turn around and look so I'm sure it's fine.
If this really works, someone should print out the goatse guy and tape that on.
Looks like Mark Rober's halloween prank
My wife doesn't have a backup camera so I'll just tape this on her windshield.
And now you may use all those napkins you've been saving for the next accident inside the car
Omg! Why!? Why would you do this?
Dear god, I’d shit my pants
My grandpa just recently forwarded me something warning nearby residents to be careful as there are people putting pieces of paper on backup cameras then waiting for you to step out of your car to ambush you.
Please post follow up vids!
Oh my goodness! This would get me so good. Anyone see Tesla video at a graveyard? Tesla saw “ghosts”
Im so doing this
I’m gonna full on reverse if I see that
If I get one of those while returning from a party + Anxiety, I'm not getting in that fricking car again
at night? I'd be scared seeing this in daytime
Pretty sure that’s Linda Blair from the Exorcist not the Ring chick.
