That looks like our prankster! Let's go get her.
-Waah! Are you Emma?
Whoa, whoa! Whoa, whoa!
-Whoa, waah! Ouch!
-Are you all right?
-I'm fine, just a new move I'm working on.
-Are you Emma? I didn't hear.
-Yes, I'm Emma.
-Did you ask for our help?
You're the newest member of the team.
You're going to need that, that means you're a VIP.
A very important prankster.
Congratulations. Oh, thanks, Ninjas. You need your jacket as well.
Mum, I need to borrow Emma for a while for some pranking, is that OK?
Follow me, Em! See you later!
Meet our newest prankster, ten-year-old, Emma Woodruff.
Emma is a PP nutcase,
and won't let her mum touch the remote when it's on.
Her favourite subject is science and she loves horror films.
Let's see if this queen of scream can become a pranking machine.
Here we are, Emma. Welcome to the Prank Van.
Let's talk business - who are we pranking?
Olivia, my best mate.
Why are we pranking Olivia?
She's a bit too stern, she needs to lighten up a bit.
-Is she? Bit of a serious person?
-What has she done?
-She keeps trying to scare me with a fake rat.
Ha-ha-ha! Does she? Well, that's not very nice!
-Let's get her back.
Before we do, let's take a look at ninja surveillance,
find out a bit more about her.
Emma and Olivia have known each other for ages,
and have grown up together.
This crazy combo are completely animal crackers,
and are always playing crafty and cunning pranks on each other.
Emma describes Olivia as gutsy but gullible.
Making this dynamic disco diva
doubly deserving of a dynamite prank.
I don't know about you, but I've just seen somebody who
needs a good pranking. Let's talk ideas.
I think it'd be good if it's animal related because we both love them.
You both like animals. Good start.
What sort of prank?
A funny prank where she laughs at the end?
-Or try and scare her silly?
-Bit of both, but mainly scare her silly.
I like that sort of prank. That the prank he we do best.
OK, so, we've got some animals,
what kind of animals?
-D'you know what? Yeah! She's always scaring you with a rat
so how about we scare her with a rat?
But instead of a little rat, it's bigger.
-Yeah, and I want YOU to be the rat!
-I'm-I'm going to be the rat.
Because of my rat-like features?
OK, what am I going to do as a big rat, though? Jump out and scare her?
Well, this rat catcher could turn up,
and he could bring this big truck thing with him,
and it could have one of those lifting mechanisms on the back.
-And it could be full of rubble.
Olivia could be left with the remote, and while she's holding it,
it goes off and lands on someone's car.
What will she do when she sees someone's car get crushed
-and it's all her fault?
-She going to freak out?
We need to get you there for a reason,
we can't just get you there and say, "A rat's loose."
-Maybe you've been invited by a vet.
-She knows I want to be a vet.
-OK, you've got work experience,
a vet there, then the rat problem starts. Perfect. Now, before we go,
I've got a rat joke.
What do you call loads of rodents with cameras?
The papaRATzzi, you know?
And then they go, "Say cheese."
Because they like cheese!
Lots to be getting on with. Ninjas!
-Tell 'em, Emma.
-Take us to Prank HQ!
The blueprint for Emma's rat prank is:
One fake vet, and one dopey rat catcher,
a truck full of rat rubble that tips over a car.
Add in some strange rat catching techniques and one giant rat,
and you've got the perfect ingredients for a rat-astrophe.
Here we are, Emma. Welcome to Prank HQ. What do you think?
-Awesome, isn't it?
This is where we build everything for your prank.
-Where shall we start?
-I want to see your costume!
Big scary rat costume. The ninja's have called Nat, our chief designer.
Let's see how she's doing.
-This is Emma.
-I'm sure you know about our rat prank.
The ninjas have called you and mentioned we need a scary rat face.
Thinking along the lines of...
Yeah. That's the look.
-Can you do that?
-I'm glad you said that,
because I've been working on the head
if you want to take a look. Ninjas?
Perfect! Olivia's so going to be scared!
Brilliant! Oh, that's scary.
That's great, Ninjas. The head's all done. Happy with that?
I guess this is the start of the costume, yeah?
Just got to use spray into the costume.
What were you thinking it would look like?
Dirty, you know, like those sewer rats in the movies.
I thought it would look even more realistic.
-After all, rats are quite dirty sometimes.
If you want to take a mask,
-we can start spraying into it and make it look dirtier.
Olivia deserves this prank because
she keeps trying to scare me with rats.
And it's time to give her a taste of her own medicine.
But I hope afterwards we're still friends.
What do you think?
-Will Olivia leg it when she sees me?
I think you need practice at being a rat if she's going to fall for it.
I need practice at being a rat?
How about if I test it on members of the public?
-I like your thinking. Ninjas!
Take us to the streets!
OK, Em, let's swap over. You take that.
-You film everyone's reactions.
Let's go and scare some people. High paw. Yeah!
Oh, ho-ho, you cheeky monkey!
Well, that felt OK. How did it look?
It looked absolutely wicked, you scared them big time!
Good! Right, let's get back to Prank HQ.
While we do, here's a prank you can get your front two teeth into.
Have you got a friend who likes to be the centre of attention?
Why not help them dress for success with today's prank?
And all you need is little mischievous misdirection.
Invite your friend to a party. Tell them it's a fancy dress party
when, in fact, it's not a fancy dress party.
For full effect, make sure the party is way across town
so it will take them a long time to get there.
And when they make their grand entrance,
they make look like Dracula...
..but your party will be even more spectacular.
Emma, say hello to Mr Shed.
Hello, Mr Shed.
I'm going to come crashing out of this dressed like a scary rat...
Is that rock hard?
That's Balsa wood, it's really light.
-You wont hurt yourself when you come through.
-That would help.
I'll demonstrate. Ninjas?
-Good! Easy to break, nice one.
I'm going to come crashing out of there. Are you happy with the shed?
Yeah, but I think it'll look better if you make it up a bit,
make it look a bit older.
And maybe a few holes
to make it look like rats already live in there.
Good idea. Attention to detail.
I've started that. I'm slapping some paint on it so we can age it up,
-and cut some holes into it like rats nibbled into it.
-Can we have a go?
Let's get to it!
If a giant rat burst out a shed in front of me, I'd be pretty scared.
Ever painted a shed? You're good.
I think Olivia will believe that a giant rat would live in that shed,
because it does look quite deserted
and it does look like there's something horrible living in there.
All we need to do now
is make it look like a rat has clawed it's way through,
so rough it up a bit. What else?
Everything needs to look like it's been clawed.
Yeah, by a big rat!
-Lovely, cheers, mate.
I've been thinking, I'm not sure how convincing
a big rat coming through that shed is going to be.
I don't think it'll work.
OK, it's going to work.
Emma, you wanted a car, we got you a car.
-Awesome, isn't it?
Let's talk about where this car.
We've got a rat catcher turning up in a truck,
on the back of it is one of them tilty things with rubble in it.
Then what happens?
Me and Olivia will get left alone with the remote,
-and it'll go off while Olivia's holding it.
And this car will be covered in rubble.
That's the idea! She will think she's ruined a very expensive car.
The car doesn't work anymore - it used to but it doesn't anymore.
Olivia will think she caused a lot of damage.
-What is she going to do?
-She's going to wish she's invisible.
-We're finished at Prank HQ, what's next?
Load the van and take us to the prank location!
GROANS AND STRAINING
Here we are, Emma. Welcome to the prank location. What do you think?
-Pretty cool, isn't it?
The ninjas reckon this is the best place
to convince Olivia that this is happening.
We've got lots of fieldy-fields - that's why they call them fields.
You've got horses, stables.
This bit here, this is kind of a dig, they're building stuff here
but we'll tell Olivia they're
-looking for rat holes.
-Will she believe it?
Obviously. I think she's not going to suspect a thing.
That's the idea! If you think this is cool, check out the next bit.
Is this where a load of rats are going to live or what?
It's wet, dirty, it smells. It's perfect!
It's quite scary as well, isn't it?
You and Olivia are going to be led down here, looking for rats.
When you get to the end, you're going to find a giant rat.
Or the giant rat finds you. It's me, I come crashing through a shed.
Where's the shed going to go? We need to sort that out.
That looks like a good spot.
Just here? OK, we'll have the shed here, then.
We'll have the door here and the wall will be this side.
I'll be inside, you and Olivia on the outside
and I come crashing through and chase her.
Still a lot more to do for this prank. One of those...
Ninjas, stop horsing around!
Tell them, Em.
Get to it, Ninjas!
The ninjas have got everything ready for the prank.
We've got to make the phone call to Olivia to make sure she'll be here.
Does she know anything at the moment?
As far as I know... Doesn't know anything.
So you're going to ring her and invite her down here?
What will you say?
Um, "Hi, it's Em. I've been invited to a farm for some work experience,
"I'm allowed to bring a friend, would you like to come?"
There you have it.
Shall we do it?
-All right then!
Hello, is it Olivia?
I've been invited to a farm for some work experience
and I've been asked if I'd like to bring a friend.
Would you like to come?
Um, yeah, definitely. I'd love to.
-Right. I've got to go.
Right, bye! See ya!
Good call! Lovely, well done!
How you feeling?
Quite confident now!
Good! She seemed to be quite keen to come as well.
Oh, she's going to pay for that one.
We're all set for the prank!
One of those. Follow me.
Our prankster, Emma Woodruff, wants to prank her best mate Olivia
by making her believe that a giant rat is on the loose.
But will the prank be a happy TAIL? Or a complete rat-astrophe?
Stay rat there to find out!
Emma, check it out, the car's in position.
We've got the skip truck, loaded with rubble,
it's going to come over the top,
land on the bonnet and hopefully get a bit of the window.
-What do you reckon?
-What will she do when that gets crushed?
Let's say hello to our rat catcher. In you come, Rob!
-The genius that he is.
Rob, one of our top Prank Patrol actors, good to see you.
-You too, guys. How are you?
-Not bad. Are you going to get dressed?
I might do in a minute!
He's ready. You're looking the part, as usual.
-What does all that stuff do?
-This is rat catching equipment.
-What does that do?
I'll have worked that out by the time we go live,
but these are nets for catching the rats.
We're all set for the prank. Anything you want to tell Rob?
Could you play a flute or a recorder
like the Pied Piper and say it's to charm the rats to your side?
Play a flute or a recorder?
Of course we can. It's Prank Patrol.
Excellent, Rob. Get in position!
Let's go check out where the action happens.
We know this is where the giant rat - or me in a costume -
is going to come crashing through the side of the shed,
but first, meet Rachel.
-All set for the prank?
-I am, I've got a few tricks up my sleeve!
Liking the ears!
Watch out for her! Into position, Rach.
The last time we were here, this looked different. What do you think?
It's awesome, just where a rat would love to live.
That's the idea. Made it look cosy enough for a rat to live in. The hay, horse poo...
It's all going to be covered over our hidden cameras as well.
One in there, one up there,
-one in that box.
And one behind us. No matter what,
we're going to see Olivia's face. You ready for this?
One of those.
Got to get into my costume.
We can get ready for the prank.
Hang on a second, what are you doing here?
Em, tell 'em.
Ninjas, hide the van!
Quick! Good luck, I'll see you in a bit.
It's Prank Time!
So, here comes the girls, who've been dropped off by their mums.
There's Rachel, our Prank Control actress,
posing as Dr Iona Mair, a vet who's going to give Olivia some work experience she won't forget.
Let the pranking commence!
Basically, I've been a vet for 15 years.
I'm here today because the horses have been spooked, and we're not sure what by.
I do a lot of horse whispering. Have you heard of that?
Basically, you know these programmes where people go and live with apes in the jungle,
they let them look through their hair. You become an ape. That's what a horse whisperer does,
you have to become one with the horse. There are lots of
basic noises that horses do. Some are hard to mimic, but some are easy.
We'll go over a few. Don't be shy, no-one will see you.
Apart from the Prank Patrol cameras.
We'll practice how to move like a horse.
One of the noises horses make is like a greeting, like a blow.
It's like a br-r-r-r-r!
You have to relax your lips and let them...
Have a go for me!
Have a go, Olivia.
Now there's the neigh. It means "get off my grass"!
-THEY TRY TO NEIGH
The way a horse moves is very important. If it's shy,
you find it nods its head and picks up its foot like this.
Push the dirt behind you with your toe. That's it.
Also, if a horse is in a good mood and wants to show off,
they do the side-step. One foot in front of the other.
Try doing the nod at the same time, then come back this way.
Try it with the blow as well. Follow me.
Look at Olivia, she thinks she's here for a day's work experience
with a vet, and we've got her prancing round like a pony. Can this stuff work on a real horse?
Try it with the neigh.
This sounds silly, but we've discovered
that if you look more like a horse, it actually really helps.
In my bag of tricks here,
I've got some horse disguises
and I'll show you, honestly, it works.
Let's put on the black ears, and we've also got a nose.
Our noises look very strange, they get spooked because they're not sure who you are.
Let's see if it works.
Brilliant. Olivia's going to put on a snout, some horse ears,
and some hooves. She's going to try to communicate with a horse.
The ninjas briefed our horse on what to do, but will it play along?
The disguise hasn't worked on the first horse, but here comes Prank Beauty.
Great work, ninjas. You've even got a horse involved. You cannot ask for more than that, classic pranking.
So now we've got Olivia looking as silly as possible
let's get back to the matter in hand - what is scaring these horses?
We've been showing them these picture cards. Not interested in the dog.
The rabbit... We're trying to find out if someone here has been making them act a bit strange.
I tell you, they've been reacting really strangely to the mouse card.
I wonder why? Maybe because there's a giant rat on the loose.
Maybe it's time to send in the rat catchers.
Better watch my car.
You all right?
-Can I help?
-Are you in charge?
-Well, I'm one of the vets.
I'm doing some workshops here. What's going on here?
-Rodents, love. Rats.
-We haven't seen any rats here.
They're definitely here. The council sent us in.
There's warrens, hides all round this place.
Two fields down just collapsed. We've been filling in the hides with soil.
-I've been told to come here, it's the next one.
-I haven't seen anything. Did you girls see anything?
-You sure you've got the right place?
-Love, rats as big as cats. I don't mean kittens.
Right, OK. We don't want to see any of those.
What I might do... Stay here, I'll go check with your mums.
They're definitely here as well. Have you not seen owt?
-You won't miss them. Monsters.
-We've only come here for work experience. We don't know anything.
-Well, you've picked a day.
We've got a serious Code Brown, council talk for a rat infestation.
-I'll leave some of my gear here. Hang on to that. Don't...
-What does it do?
That's the auto-release for that.
As if Olivia would press the button to release the soil onto the car.
Maybe she wouldn't. Maybe it'll have to be automatic.
I wouldn't know how to press it!
What did you press?! Give it here!
Stop it! Stop it!
No! Stop! Stop!
Who pressed that?
-Who pressed that?
-It just went off.
They don't just go off.
It did! What's that noise?
What on earth?!
No, no, no!
That's my car!
No, it just went off!
-How did this happen? I've gone for two seconds...
-I don't know what to do.
Right, what on earth is going on?
That is absolutely disgraceful, I'm not happy about it at all.
Are these kids with you?
They are. What's happening?
Ask her why she just pressed that. Where's all my soil gone?
Excuse me, who pressed what?
I wasn't the one holding it, so it must have been her.
Brilliant, Emma. You are stitching up your best mate.
That is top pranking.
The problem I've got is I've got a few thousand rats running about and my job is to get rid of them,
and fill the run in with soil. I can't do that, so we have to catch them by hand. You lot have to help.
Wait here, I'll get some more kit. Don't touch anything else.
What an absolute idiot.
So here comes Rob, with his array of rat catching equipment.
A bag of cheese, his rat radar ready to seek out any rampaging rodents.
We've had tracking fluid in the drains.
There he is, he's over here.
He's over here. Right, follow me.
With the rodent radar in hand, our rat controller Rob takes the girls in search of rats.
Olivia seems to be believing everything so far, so it's time to crank the prank and head to the bar.
Follow me! Hang on...
He's there! He's there!
Get your nets ready.
Whoa, whoa, whoa! You see where he's been nibbling?
-He's a big 'un.
Come on! Let's have you!
Did he come past?
He went up the grass, up there.
You sure it's a rat, not a cat?
It makes cats look small, this thing.
-We would have seen it.
-Seen its tail.
He's in the shed.
We need maximum cheese coverage. Come in, please.
Yep, it's time for Rob to unleash his most hi-tech piece of rat catching equipment - mouldy cheese.
That's a good one. I'll give you that one.
Nice soft cheese for you.
Come on, pay attention.
Wave it. Wave it there.
Is it smelling right, that?
It smells cheesy.
Break a bit off in your fingers.
-Oh, my God!
Right, stay there. If he comes out from under there...
-Had enough of this.
Give me a bit of cheese! Who's got the biggest smelly one?
This is weird.
It's going to get weirder - I'm going to start pulling the net.
Both get hold of that.
He's holding it!
Oh, my God!
Right, I'm having him.
Aw, brilliant, Rob. He's making it look like he's actually wrestling with a giant rat,
when really, we're just cutting his clothes so it looks like a rat has savaged his sleeve.
-Did you feel it?
-Did I feel it?!
-You heard of the Pied Piper?
Great. Now we've got Olivia totally believing that Rob's sleeve has been shredded by our rodent.
Time to try the old fashioned approach - the Pied Piper technique.
Bring on the recorder.
HE PLAYS RECORDER TUNELESSLY
It looked daft, but I promise you...
-Have you heard of the Pied Piper?
-Start swaying, please.
Yep, I'm sure swaying along will definitely lure out a giant rat.
It won't, but she looks pretty silly doing it.
We need dancing, full-on dancing.
Are we going to do that?!
JAUNTY RECORDER MUSIC PLAYS
Keep swaying, I'm going round.
There we go, that's fine. Come on.
Keep dancing, now. He's coming.
He's coming, keep dancing.
Yeah, that's right, Rob. Bring them nice and close,
because this ginormous rat is about to attack.
-What do you want to say to Olivia?
-You've been pranked by the Prank Patrol!
-Round of applause, everyone!
Nice ears, by the way. Lovely.
Not every day a rat jumps out at you. Anything to say to Emma?
I've going to get you back.
Oh, good. Right, who's for some cheese?
Olivia's face when the rat came out was hilarious.
She was like, "Oh, my gosh, I'm being chased by a giant rat, what should I do?"
I can't believe Emma did all of this to prank me. It was a real big shock.
I was dressed like a rat, cool. I came crashing through the side of a shed, cool.
The rubble hit the car, awesome. A big scary bit at the end. It worked brilliant.
I've had so much fun that I'm just going to run home and tell everybody.
I think Barney makes a tremendous rat. He scared Olivia big-time, and that's what we like.
One of them.
Two of them.
Well, rat's all, folks!
Ha-ha! Rat's all, folks.
Clearly not funny.
Look out! Next time, the star
of Prank Patrol could be you.
See you then.
