The idea is to real people back in right before they smack you.
Featuring new episodes every week, SavageShawntv thinks up new ways to prank unsuspecting strangers. Imagine walking the isles of a store, innocently deciding what items you’d like to purchase when out of nowhere, there’s a box on your head. Silly, right? You’d feel very confused yet compelled to find the culprit. Once found out, there’s no telling how people will react.
The idea is to reel people back in right before they smack you. Shawn and his crew have become experts at talking themselves out of potential physical confrontations. “We have definitely taken it to the edge a few times,” Shawn states. “We usually have a lot of apologizing to do.” He continues, “It’s important to be respectful, but people’s genuine reaction to the prank is what makes it worth watching.”
Shawn takes a lot of risks creating these videos. Some of these videos involve pranks such as eating people’s food, slapping people’s drinks, and pulling people’s chairs. These are some of the more tame videos.
Shawn goes as far as snatching girls’ wigs, stealing people’s cars, and even slashing people’s tires in some of the more dangerous videos. If he wasn’t so charming, I don’t think people would be so willing to forgive. Shawn often ends up going on dates and getting phone numbers from the girls he pranks.
Advertisers already realize the power of social media, especially with influencers who have large fan bases.
