Getting investigated because of a prank? Yes, it happened to a Melbourne trio called the Jalals.
They have rapidly gained a reputation for their “dangerous” pranks like kidnappings and pranks involving bombs. Brothers Max Jalal, 20, Rebeen Jalal, 16, and Arman Jalal 18, have been posting their edgy pranks on YouTube and Facebook during the past few months. In the pranks they wear a thawb, a traditional Arabic ankle length garb.
The reason why they are investigated is because of a mock drive-by shooting prank. On February 22, the Jalals posted a prank on their Facebook and YouTube pages in which they drive in car and holding fake AK-47s. Accompanied with gunfire sound effects blasting out of their car’s stereo they “shoot” at people who walk by. Sadly, it also involved a little girl, who clutched fast onto her father.
The brothers have had a lot of negative comments on their Facebook page with more than 91,000 likes. Many commented about the possibility of being shot back and the optional illegality of their prank.
