Watch This Dinosaur Go on a Terrifying Rampage in a Parking Garage!

From reading our news feed, you might be inclined to think Australia is literally overrun with deadly spiders and snakes. Well, that’s partially true… but did we mention they have a slight dinosaur problem as well?

Okay, so it’s not a real problem, but that’s not what the victims of this vicious video prank thought when this ravenous raptor lunged at them on the way to their parking spaces.


In a stunt they call “Jurassic Carpark,” popular Aussie radio hosts Hamish Blake & Andy Lee hired a performer to don an ultra-realistic velociraptor suit — the kind that’s been popping up in lots of viral prank videos lately — then concealed themselves and their cameras while waiting for potential human prey to come along.

You know, if anthropologists ever wanted to do a “fight-or-flight” response study, I think this would be the most awesome way ever to conduct it. Knowing perfectly well that dinosaurs have been extinct for millions of years, people still involuntarily react as if a real predator was after them… and their next instinctive reaction is to usually to burst out in hysterical laughter.

So will you, I’ll bet.
