Ed Bassmaster Scares Strangers in New York Dressed as Bush Man

Renowned YouTube prankster Ed Bassmaster recently went into Central Park in New York City and dressed himself as the famed Bush Man, scaring various unsuspecting New Yorkers.

Bassmaster is a YouTuber from Philadelphia who makes various humorous videos that involve him carrying out funny pranks on strangers. His latest video has him wearing a costume based on a character from the World Famous Bushman in San Francisco. The costume is easily disguised once worn against a leafy bush or heavily wooded area.

Unsuspecting strangers were pleasantly -- and not-so-pleasantly -- surprised once Bassmaster would jump out at them, often spouting random phrases or starting up conversations. I do, however, wish he had taken it to the next level and actually got some people to cry out of fear. Stats for Costumed Central Park Pranks Trending: Older & Mild
