Chris Pratt gets pranked with two life-size dinosaurs in YouTube vid

Chris Pratt Dinosaurs Prank (SA Wardega)
Actor Chris Pratt may be tired of dinosaurs by now, but unbeknownst to him, the star of the mega-hit Jurrasic World had at least one more reptilian thrill in store. Pratt recently got pranked with the help of some life-size animatronic dinosaurs by YouTuber SA Wardega in a hidden camera video that has now reached close to two-million views on the site.

You may not know him immediately by face or name, as Pratt did not. But Polish YouTuber Sylwester Wardega is no stranger to Internet video pranking fame. He most famously created the creepy mutant giant spider dog video – which Pratt references in this video – that has, in less than a year, been viewed more than 140 million times. He first made a name for himself back in 2013 for his video called Police Trainer where he taunts Polish cops by drinking a beer in public, then bolting to see if they will try to catch him. The verdict? It’s worth watching.

This latest video, which not quite as entertaining, includes highly-realistic looking and moving animatronic dinosaurs that scare and surprise Pratt as he turns a hallway corner.

Interestingly enough, the massive creatures still don’t seem to scare Pratt quite as much as a dog in a spider costume seemed to have frightened folks in the aforementioned video. What makes this video funny, however, is Pratt’s reaction to having been “had.”

Obviously, the massively-successful fourth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World, was the inspiration behind the prank. And while Pratt may have been less than thrilled with the ruse, he ought to be more than able to take it in stride. As the lead in what has quickly become one of the most successful blockbusters of all time — raking in a record $524.4 million in its opening weekend alone according to Variety — Pratt doesn’t have much to complain about. Though we’re guessing he’ll be glad to soon be done with dinosaurs for a while — until the next sequel, anyway.

There’s a reason YouTube TV has found itself the leader in live-streaming video. In fact, it has about twice as many subscribers to its cable-TV replacement as the next biggest platform. And. among other reasons like price, reliability, and abundance of channels, it is just packed with features.
In fact, YouTube TV has so many features tucked away in there that you’ll be forgiven if you don’t spot them all at first. But we’ve done the legwork. We’ve watched hours and hours of YouTube TV. Weeks and months, really. We’ve flipped all the buttons. We’ve pressed all the switches. (Wait — reverse that.) And we’ve put together a list of what we think are the most important — if not always obvious — YouTube TV tips and tricks. And we're not just talking about NFL Sunday Ticket.
This isn’t everything. There are still a few other places to explore in the settings menu, as well as when you’re watching shows and movies. But these are the YouTube TV tips and tricks we absolutely think you must know.

This long-awaited YouTube TV feature is a channel-flipper’s dream
The previous channel feature on YouTube TV on a TV.

The move from cable to streaming for live TV changed a lot of things. Choice, for one. (We have more.) Price, for another. (You're likely paying less.) But not all changes were great. If you're of the channel-surfing variety — or love to flip back and forth between two channels — you've likely been missing that feature.

YouTube TV — the most popular streaming service in the U.S. with more than 8 million subscribers — has addressed the latter. After having been teased in some A/B testing for a while now (that is, some folks saw it, and most didn't), it looks like the ability to hop back and forth between two channels is now rolling out more broadly.
