While Andrew Hales, the creator and star of the LAHWF (Losing All Hope Was Freedom) channel, isn’t as outlandish or boisterous as other YouTube pranksters, his videos still consistently achieve viral gangbuster status and grab media attention. The Salt Lake City resident typically pulls social experiment/awkward public interaction type of gags — a strong trend in YouTube prank videos — and his latest carries on that theme.
In “Kissing Selfie Surprise,” shot entirely with his iPhone 5c, Hales surprises strangers who’ve agreed to selfies with kisses. Surprisingly, there were no reactions involving punching or kneeing in the balls documented (but there may or may not be a real slap in there somewhere …).
