On Tuesday, the Internet exploded with an online campaign that was dubbed Blind Date 1999.
The prankster who created it, Blind Date 2000, claimed to have captured some of the most memorable moments of the 1999 World Series, and his exploits have gone viral on YouTube.
The Internet has taken his account as a source of information, and he’s been featured on sites such as Reddit and Reddit AMA.
The original video had 1.6 million views, according to the Daily Dot, and the “Randy” persona has been featured in videos on the Daily Show and Comedy Central.
According to CNN, the account was a result of the “predicting that a certain number of people would be watching the game and that a lot of them would be blind.”
The video itself was shot on June 19, 1999 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, and features clips from games and highlights from the 1995 and 1997 seasons.
The video shows an elderly man, who appears to be wearing a blindfold, asking people in the stands to watch him walk around the bases, with one person telling him, “The Dodgers are winning the World Series.”
He then proceeds to explain that the “World Series is over, and I want you to watch it on the television.”
This man has been on the receiving end of the prankster’s “Ranger” mask, which is essentially a mask worn by an old man that prevents the blinds from falling down and obscuring vision.
The mask is also covered with a special tape, which shows the “Nats” logo.
At the end of his video, the man appears to get up, but is then shown to fall backward into a crowd of people.
The “Rangers” mask is seen falling to the ground.
The clip ends with a shot of the man with his “Rambo” mask on his head.
The man then proceeds back to the dugout, where he repeats the “rangers” chant before disappearing into the crowd.
The incident has since gone viral.
“The prankster is an idiot,” the Daily Mail’s Chris Dickson wrote in a story about the prank.
“It’s like watching the worst of ‘The Simpsons’ for your entire life.”
CNN reported that “a large number of Twitter users who were not fans of the mask or the prank” took to the comments section of the video to complain about the “unacceptable behavior.”
One user said, “You’re literally making this guy think he’s a wild animal in a circus.”
Another person said, “[T]he mask is not a mask, it’s an imitation mask.
I don’t know what he was trying to do, but I don´t want to be that guy.”
The Daily Dot reported that the person behind the account, “was unaware that the mask was fake,” and that the prank was a “completely accidental prank.”
In an interview with the Daily Beast, Blind Day 2000 said he was “hurt” by the video’s viral reception, saying, “I guess it is something that I was not expecting at all.”
The clip is one of many instances in which people have mistaken blind dates for wild animals, including the “Madagascar” character who is blind and walks around on his own.
The film Blind Date, which was filmed in 1999 and released on May 30, 1999, also features clips of blind people walking around, as well as clips of animals.
The most infamous clip was a scene where the character, called “Madjay,” runs around on the beach in a towel, and then says, “Madjackies are just like the dogs in ‘The Jungle Book,'” before walking away.
In another clip, the character says, in French, “It´s raining!” and then “It`s raining!
It rains!” at a beach.
In 2004, “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson was forced to retract his statement that he would kill an animal to prove that it was not a real animal.
Robertson said at the time, “This is a f**king animal.
This is not some type of mammal.”
Robertson was speaking in French.
In 2014, a video surfaced showing a woman running around in a wheelchair, dressed as an animal.
The woman was wearing a mask.
The animal was a dog.
