As practical jokes go, the Invisible Driver Drive-Thru Prank – as created and filmed by compulsive prankster and magician Rahat – ranks in the upper tier.
For this trick, members of the audience, Rahat builds a seat cover that looks just like the seat in his Nissan, then puts it over himself while he’s driving.
The result? What appears to be a car that drives itself … and has a real craving for fast food. Delish. Watch Rahat’s hilarious demonstration below:Drive Thru Invisible Driver Prank

Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan for Vice President this morning, and apparently thinks very highly of him, as Paul received a promotion within five minutes!
Okay, not really, but in introducing the Wisconsin Congressman and rising GOP star to a Norfolk, Va., crowd, Romney finished his remarks with a gaffe:
“Join me in welcoming the next President of the United States, Paul Ryan!”
Of course … if President Obama wins reelection, then Ryan wins the White House in 2016, Romney could be proven correct! Chances are that’s not what he meant.
Mitt caught hisMore >
The following video may not be overly impressive to Harry Potter fans who are accustomed to magic, but we find it pretty darn cool.
A Japanese YouTube user named “marayu74″ has released a look at him playing this iconic franchise’s theme song, using nothing but wine glasses. How does he accomplish this feat? It has something to do with the right amount of water and the right type of glass… but whatever.
Just watched and be amazed now!

Glenn Beck and his family attended a screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in Bryant Park on Monday night, but the host explained on his radio show today that he was greeted with anything but a warm welcome.
“It was a hostile situation,” he said, detailing how wife Tanya had wine “intentionally kicked on her back” and how a man pointed at Tanya and Beck’s daughter and screamed: “We hate conservatives here!”
No one told the trouble makers to knock it off, Beck continued.

Justin Bieber and Chris Brown aren’t just collaborating on a music video.
According to director Colin Tilley, they are collaborating on a music video that is “gonna be big.” And now we’ve got your first look at it.
The artists have Tweeted two photos of themselves on the set of “Next 2 U,” with Brown writing “Judgement day!! Lol” and Bieber adding: “#Next2You #EPIC.”
These pictures likely won’t land Brown in any trouble, unlike another Twitter-based news item regarding the singer. Turns out, he and Rihanna are following each other on their accounts.
We didn’t see that coming!

Justin Bieber knows what women want. Especially because, more often than not, the answer is simple: him.
But now the 17-year old who has already come out with his own line of nail polish has announced he’ll release a perfume because, let’s face it…
“The way a girl smells is very important to a guy,” he told Women’s Wear Daily. “I have such a deep connection with my fans, so creating a fragrance that I personally love is another way I can bring them closer to my world.”
And, really, is there any place a girl would rather be?

When will celebrities learn that just because they can say anything they want when microblogging, they probably shouldn’t. Aflac spokesperson or perhaps I should say former Aflac rep Gilbert Gottfriend took to Twitter on Sunday and tweeted the following message:
“I just split up with my girlfriend, but like the Japanese say, ‘They’ll be another one floating by any minute now.’”
“What does every Japanese person have in their apartment? Flood lights.”
Even after receiving harsh criticism from his own fans he continued with:
“Japan called me. They said ‘maybe those jokes are
We suppose you can give 50 Cent credit for trying to lighten the mood, but it was still a little soon for Japanese earthquake/Tsunami humor, most likely.
While countless celebrities Tweeted their thoughts and prayers to the victims, the rapper attempted some online stand-up comedy, with mixed results.
Some of 50′s ill-advised Twitter tsunami one-liners …
- “Its all good Till b*tches see there christian louboutins floating down da street shit gone get crazy.”
- “Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my hoe’s from LA,Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol”
