Hey, remember that show Candid Camera? If you were born in the ’90s, then you probably can’t recall the practical joke show — think of it as Punk’d‘s goofy uncle, where the “victims” aren’t celebrities but hapless folks like you and me, and the pranks are all fairly benevolent. We’re not sure what exactly happened to either Candid Camera or Punk’d, but we somehow stumbled upon this video that made us giggle.
The setup? A woman (who’s in on the joke) leaves her baby sucking on a pacifier with a perfect stranger. No, that’s not the joke! In the woman’s absence, an accomplice sneakily (and we’re talking some slapstick cartoon stuff here) removes the pacifier from the baby’s mouth. Meanwhile, across the way, someone else puts an identical pacifier in a dog’s mouth. The dog is, of course, strategically placed in the prankee’s direct line of sight. What do people do when they discover the baby’s pacifier now in a dog’s mouth? No, they don’t wonder why a perfect stranger asked them to watch their baby or what that dog is doing sitting there by himself. You’ll have to watch the video to see their reactions!
The winning moment is probably when one of the prankees fetches the pacifier from the dog’s mouth and is about to return it to the baby. The dog and the baby almost end up swapping slobber!
