Jack Vale Films is the YouTube channel of American comedian Jack Vale, who you can read more about on the Other Wiki here.

He films himself doing practical jokes that mainly involve him doing (or appearing to do) bizarre things in public. A lot of his pranks are one-shots but he has a few pranks that he does on the regular, including:

  • The Pooter: Where Jack uses a machine called a "pooter" to pretend to fart in public. Sometimes he changes it up by doing something like lifting his leg while "farting" or pretending it's his friend who's farting.
  • Advertisement:
  • Paranoid: Where Jack aims to make people paranoid by describing them to an imaginary person on the end of a cell phone or walkie-talkie.
  • Nonsense: Where Jack says nonsensical statements (like "Piddle on a cow fat" or "Flapjack on the mama") to strangers.
  • I'm Married: Where Jack acts as though random women are flirting with him and informs them that he's married.
  • I'm Not Gay: Similar to I'm Married, where Jack acts as though random men are flirting with him and informs him that he's not gay.
  • Eating Goldfish: Where Jack has a fish bowl and eats goldfish-shaped candy out of it to make it look like he's eating the fish.
  • Drinking from a Baby Bottle: Where Jack pushes a stroller and drinks from a baby bottle.
  • Invisible: Where Jack acts as though there's a dog/cell phone/wife/kid/etc there but there isn't.

  • Old Man Harry: Where Jack pranks people dressed as an old man.
  • Taking Notes: Similar to Paranoid, where Jack writes on a pad while describing strangers and, when asked what he's doing, replies that he's "just taking notes".

The videos usually end with him explaining to the people involved that it's a joke.
