Remember when we posted that photo of Frankie Edgar getting his BMW M5 “towed” away by repo men? Well, it turns out that the mastermind behind the prank, TUF 14′s Akira Corassani, even went as far as to hire actors hooked up with some Mission Impossible-esque camera glasses to capture the whole thing on video. The man is like the Swedish Ashton Kutcher. But although he’s come a long way from shaving castmates hair in their sleep, he will never match the whip-it gag Kelso managed to pull on Demi Moore a couple weeks ago. That was like the Thomas Crown Affair of modern day pranks.
Does anyone else find the funniest part of this video to be that Corassani calls himself a UFC fighter? He IS set to square off against British striker Jason Young at UFC on FUEL 2 in what will surely be a slobber knocker, but calling yourself a “UFC fighter” before actually having fought inside the real octagon seems a little preemptive to me. Then again, it’s been a good four years since I’ve even trained MMA (the gym went under in ’09), and a good two since I’ve gotten in a fight, so what the fuck do I know?
