Roadside pranksters trick drivers thinking there is – and then there isn’t – a speed camera ahead… before their ‘joke’ takes an infuriating turn
- Drivers on a busy road in Queensland have been fooled by a pair of pranksters
- Comedy duo Marty and Michael recorded the prank as they drove past them
- One prankster held a sign warning motorists of a speed camera down the road
- They then posted two signs saying there was no camera when there actually was
A comedy duo have, along with other motorists, claimed to be duped into speeding in front of a mobile speed camera.
Two pranksters fooled drivers in Queensland with a series of signs that first warned them about a speed camera ahead, then admitted it was a joke… seconds before an actual speed camera appeared.
Comedic pair Marty and Michael, who post skits to their social media channels, shared a clip of the prank to their TikTok account.
However, it is unclear if they are in on the joke and staged their reactions, while leaving hundreds of other drivers to be caught out just to make a video.
Pranksters have fooled motorists on a busy Queensland road with a series of signs warning them of a speed camera ahead
Aussie comedy duo Marty and Michael were almost caught speeding by an actual speed camera after they were tricked by the signs
The duo drive down the major road past a man holding a sign that reads: ‘Speed camera ahead!’
‘That is the best, thank you!’ one of the comedians says as both men cheer.
They then notice two more signs tapped to a street light pole further down the road that jokingly says: ‘Kidding. Made you slow down.’
The pair chuckle over the prank, with the driver responding, ‘F**king a**eholes, speeding up’.
He puts his foot down on the accelerator to speed before the pair see an actual mobile speed camera stationed ahead.
‘Oh wait, hang on. Oh my God,’ the passenger says.
The driver slams his foot down on the brake as they pass the camera.
Just after the camera, a second prankster stands with a sign reading: ‘Sorry.’
The first sign warned motorists about a speed camera ahead before two more signs posted to a street light pole down the road revealed the drivers had been tricked into ‘slowing down’
The signs were posted before an actual speed camera that was stationed by the side of the road
One of the pranksters was seen near the speed camera holding a sign that apologised to passing drivers for misleading them
Many users who commented on the video appeared to enjoy the prank.
‘This is amazing,’ one wrote.
‘Rollercoaster of emotion,’ another added.
A third added: ‘Plot twist: they’re cops that haven’t handed out enough tickets for the week.’
