Pokémon Go is one game people across the world are severely hooked to. You should not be surprised if you find someone walking in the middle of the road or running around on a street to catch a Pokémon. Believe it or not, there are signboards hung at several roads in the US asking people not to play Pokémon while driving. That’s the level of addiction this game has.
But while everyone is out to catch ’em all, beware fo Pikachus who have decided to take revenge on all those Pokémon Go addicts.
Okay, there’s obviously no real Pikachu but this bunch of guys wearing the costume running around in their car throwing Poké balls at people makes for a hilarious watch. This prank video made and released by Basel Tourism board and Fadeout shows four guys wearing Pikachu costumes and attacking random people with huge Poké balls in Basel using a slingshot.
In the hilarious video, the guys first aim the ball at a cyclist sitting around a fountain who ends up falling in the water. But he didn’t let it go, he comes out of the pool and runs behind the car which obviously has left to catch the next prey. Pikachus then hurl the balls at people who are absolutely unaware of what’s happening.
The video has gone viral with over 600,000 within two days. And people’s comments are mostly the laughing tears emoticon!
The game has become such a rage in India, there were hundreds of people in Chennai measuring the length and breadth of a park just to catch a rare Pokémon.
