Picking Up Uber Rides in a Bugatti Is the Kind of Prank You Pull in Dubai

We've said it before and we'll say it again: the world of pranks has gotten out of hand. Many clips you see nowadays are either staged in a way that makes them ridiculous or crosses the line in a way that makes open-mindedness seem like a euphemism for being a douche. Or perhaps both.
Fortunately, the smiles and giggles industry still has people who know how to do their thing while being reasonable. And they don't all have to come up with old-school humor like Frech veteran Remi Gaillard.

The latest worth-watching example comes from Coby Persin. A 21-year-old who likes to ride the YouTube wave hard, Coby describes himself as social experimenter/pranksters.

And while many of his adventures treat delicate social issues, the most recent one saw the man flying to Dubai in order to pull an Uber prank.

As a tourist with either financial or miscellaneous possibilities (as is the case with Coby here), one of the most interesting things about Dubai is that you can... improvise a lifestyle just as quickly as the city did back in the day when its effervescent ascension started.

As far as the car aficionado inside you is concerned, this means you'll be able to rent almost any supercar or hypercar you can think of and without too much hassle.

Sure, if you're looking to get behind the wheel of a Bugatti Veyron for a day, you may have to pay north of $10,000, but while Coby pursued that path, money was replaced by the need to see what happens when the now-retired velocity king plays the part of an Uber car.

Perhaps the only downside of this stunt is that the ratio between male and female passengers is not as... balanced as in other videos of the sort, but we won't ruin the fun by letting that conclusion stick.
