What a stunt! Web joker films prank in town centre shops
Famed internet prankster Discoboy was spotted in Ashford on Monday afternoon.
The self-styled “entertainer prankster DJ host”, aka Lee Marshall, led a group of cheering, dancing teenagers around the town centre for his latest video.
The joker dragged a large set of speakers on wheels into McDonald’s in the Lower High Street and instructed his followers to scream.
Wearing his trademark ushanka-style hat, sunglasses and shorts, Discoboy can be seen performing pop hits for diners and shoppers.
He also visited the 99p Stores shop in Ashford High Street.
The whole charade was caught on camera by one of his associates and later uploaded to his popular Facebook page.
In one shot, a PCSO is seen approaching the prankster who shouts “whoop, whoop, it’s da sounds of the police” over the microphone.
The latest video has already received nearly 500,000 views and hundreds of comments.
Lee’s Facebook page, which has more than 166,500 likes, has been flooded with messages from people all over the country, urging him to pay a visit to a shop near them.
The latest video appeared on the prankster’s Facebook page just days after he was arrested and charged with assault for slapping a rival internet joker with a pizza.
Lee, 30, is said to have confronted Jack Jones when he spotted him walking past Canterbury West station.
The Canterbury joker filmed the intended “prank”, with Mr Jones calling the police to report an assault.
Lee has known Jones for about three years and used to work as a cameraman on his videos.
He is due to appear before Canterbury magistrates on Friday, March 11.
