Watch A Guy Pull A Shake Weight Prank On Some Cops

If you have a preference for more sophisticated, highbrow humor, you probably don't need to read any further. However, if you've ever giggled while using a "Shake Weight," Roman Atwood's latest prank may be just the thing to make you smile as the clock ticks toward lunch hour today. See what this guy does to get the attention of passing cops.

The "Shake Weight" is a modified dumbbell that's used by shaking - hence the name. Of course, with the right posture it might look like a person is doing something else, which is what Roman Atwood set out to exploit with his prank on cops in this video, which was posted a couple of days ago and has already racked up more than half a million views. For the most part, the prank works and inspires a variety of reactions. Watch the police officers' reactions when the notice a guy hunched over on the sidewalk, shaking.

It's funny to see that some cops have a sense of humor about it, while others seem relieved to see that he's not doing what they thought he was doing. I especially like the woman who thought it was too early in the day to be dealing with something like that. The fact that this situation might actually arise and require law enforcement gives me a deeper appreciation for what police officers have to deal with.

Some weren't so thrilled with what was going on, even after they saw what the pranker was actually doing, and the video ends with the shaker and his camera guy being hauled off. If you mess with law enforcement, even just for funsies, getting arrested is probably one of the bigger risks.
