Watch out, the Out­lawz are in town

CityPress - - Trend­ing -

The streets of South Africa are be­ing tar­geted by fun­ny­man Tol A$$ Mo and his team of pranksters called the Out­lawz.

Whether you’re a uni­ver­sity stu­dent or strolling along the pier on Dur­ban’s beach­front, be­ware of the Out­lawz, who seem to pounce on their prey when they least ex­pect it.

If you’ve watched Ash­ton Kutcher on the MTV show Punk’d, then you know what I’m talk­ing about.

SA’s #YouGotGot is colour­ful, cur­rent and funny. There could be an evil clown hid­ing in the bushes wait­ing for you to fin­ish your latenight stud­ies or a red-headed woman could

PRANK MAN perch on your lap like it’s a comfy place to re­lax.

And celebri­ties aren’t safe ei­ther. Singer Bu­cie and Queen B Bo­nang Matheba were “got” when they au­di­tioned to host the MTV Africa Mu­sic Awards with a fake teleprompter and a script that was un­con­ven­tional, to say the least.

Matheba sol­diered on as best as she could and got through most of it.

But the fiery Bu­cie wasn’t hav­ing any of it and stormed off in a con­fused tizz.

The re­ac­tions of the peo­ple get­ting pranked are price­less, and the edit­ing and run­ning com­men­tary by Mo are mas­ter­ful.

The Mabo­neng Precinct and Braam­fontein are ar­eas fre­quented by the show, so if you find your­self be­ing sniffed at by a ran­dom passer-by or sud­denly en­gaged in a rap bat­tle, smile and look around for the cam­eras be­cause you just got got. – Phum­lani Sithebe Langa
