Kicker – Woodland prankster


NICK EICHER, HOST: It’s the oldest prank in the book. Down here, kids call it “ding, dong, dash.” 

Up in Canada, they call it “nicky, nicky, nine doors.” 

You sneak up to a house, you ring the doorbell, you run and hide. 

Well, just north of Montréal, this prankster really couldn’t call it anything, and video doorbell evidence shows the reason why.

Now, notice the audio track here, and I’ve compressed the sequences, but you can hear the little rogue roots around, then … contact!

BASHAM: Haha, time to update the ringtone!

EICHER: When I say the video captures the little rogue, I need to emphasize little. The video shows it’s just a hungry squirrel, looking for something to eat.

Either that, or the winter wildlife have acquired a taste for juvenile pranks!

It’s The World and Everything in It.
