The latest prank video to go viral on YouTube and spawn copycats has grocery store managers upset.

It’s called ‘gallon smashing’ – someone purposely smashes two milk jugs in a grocery store aisle, then falls to the floor and keeps slipping as passersby try to help the prankster up. A friend records the whole incident on their phone.

Over one million people have viewed the above clip on YouTube.

A 21-year-old who tried to repeat the prank in Omaha, Nebraska faces criminal charges after causing hundreds of dollars in damage at a Hy-Vee grocery store there.
