What a stunt! Web joker films prank in town cen­tre shops

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Discoboy Comes To Town - By Vicky Cas­tle

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.
