At one point or another, we’ve all been on the wrong side of a prank or practical joke.

But when Howie Mandel returned home one day, it became clear that he’d fallen victim to something far more extreme.

As it turned out, Mandel had unwittingly become the latest target of a serial prankster named Roman Atwood. Something of a YouTube phenomenon, Atwood uploads videos of himself conducting rather intense practical jokes on a variety of people. Some of these are individuals from his own life, while other victims are famous celebrities.
