Watch This Radio Show Pull Off the Meanest Dinosaur Prank

Truly terrifying

Jurassic Park is scary enough. Now just imagine being ambushed by one of those dinosaurs. That is basically what happened to some unsuspecting victims in a radio station’s parking lot in Melbourne, Australia.

To pull off this “Jurassic Carpark” prank as part of their daily radio show, the comedy duo Hamish & Andy (aka Hamish Blake and Andy Lee) dressed up a person in a dinosaur costume that they borrowed from the Jurassic Park exhibition at the Melbourne Museum. There is a person in that suit, though there are some robotics features in the head and neck.

The clip has racked up more than 2.3 million views since it was first uploaded to YouTube on March 22.
