Miami Man Pulls Mass Shooter Prank

Lou Panick is almost as dumb of a stage name as Criss Angel.
Lou Panick dreams of YouTube stardom. The only thing holding this wannabe prankster back is that he can't come up with a single idea beyond harassment. Most of his uploads revolve around assaulting pedestrians or making offensive comments toward women on Miami Beach. It's all typical, juvenile fare that no one would find funny, excepting maybe middle school boys who live in states like Iowa and are too young and landlocked to have ever seen an episode of "Jackass" or a woman wearing a bikini.

In September, though, Panick seemed to realize that tit jokes weren't getting him fame. He upped the ante with "Crazy Throwing Up Blood Prank," the premise of which is pretty self-explanatory. Panick elicits the concern of various onlookers by feigning violent illness, and when others try to run away from his mess, he chases them down the street.

Still, no calls for a "Today Show" interview. His Instagram stats stagnated at a depressing 17 followers. Crazy.

He even tried to contact Y100 on October 2nd to see if they liked his guerrilla-style humor. It's unclear what he thought the radio station might do with a the video, but perhaps Panick was seeking employment as a shock jock? Regardless of intent, he sent the station this message on Facebook: "I made this insanely funny and highly shocking prank video in which people freak out. I would like to see if it was possible for it to get publicity. I'm only asking y100 to take a look at it and deem if it is viral material."

No response.

It was finally time to pull out the big guns. Airsoft guns. With the orange tips removed, so they look perfectly real. In a "live prank" video that went up around Halloween, Panick donned the mask of Michael Myers, from the Halloween movie franchise. He proceeded to run around Miami at night with the ersatz weapon, making Miamians think they were about to be shot by a mentally unhinged person.

First off, Michael Myers never once used a gun, you ass.

Secondly, it is never, ever, ever, EVER okay to pretend you're a mass shooter.

Finally, how did someone not shoot you? We live in Florida. It's a wonder that you're alive.

There's a fine line between provocative humor and plain stupidity. You do not seem even vaguely aware that this point of demarcation -- or the concept of good taste -- exists.
