masters of disguise youtubeI have a confession to make. Everyone on MakeUseOf is the same person, and that person is “our” managing editor, Mark O’Neill. To be honest, I thought it would be a great idea! I just wanted to see if I could pull it off, and yes, I know this may be a surprise to some!

Uncle Floville

Uncle Floville is a character created by Wayne Spring of Albany, Louisiana. Spring apparently acquired a premium special effects mask of an elderly man, and after that, he did what anyone would do – starting pulling the funniest pranks ever with it. Spring goes around Albany dressed as a certain “Uncle Floville”, messing with friends and people he doesn’t even know. The pranks are good clean fun, and even though he used his disguise to steal beer money from a good friend, it’s worth watching (he gave his friend the beer).

Ed Bassmaster

Ed Bassmaster is quite possibly YouTube’s most talented master of disguise. He has a wide range of characters that pull pranks on people from all over, and he always has a camera shooting the craziness from afar. Furthermore, he takes his characters to the phone lines, making insane prank calls to people everywhere.

In addition to this, his characters make frequent trips to fast food drive-thrus. If you only watch one YouTube 5 YouTube Channels for Must-See Movie Reviews The majority of us like watching movies.

I’ve always found myself coming back to their work, and they almost always get a laugh out of me.

Just For Laughs TV

I’ll be honest and say that I would not consider Just For Laughs TV to be necessarily a disguise channel. However, the videos always have various characters that are worth watching, and I guess that technically we can say that a disguise is merely a character, right? (I know I’m stretching it just a little.)

Anyway, this channel is great for watching series of pranks played on various innocent bystanders, and there is a lot of content to view on here alone. Each video is merely accompanied with its own score and a fabricated laugh track, but that doesn’t take away from their hilarity Love Is Blind, Batman, Winrar And More [Best of Reddit] Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages; welcome to another fun-filled edition of the Best of Reddit.
