Video

"...the splendor and joy of Japanese performing arts..."

Imagine walking into work with your cup of coffee in hand, only to be greeted by an alarming group of your colleagues screaming and running the other direction.

Then imagine that rounding the corner comes an insanely realistic-looking -- and sounding (if we can speculate what they sounded like) -- velociraptor.

This is what a Japanese man encountered, sending him stumbling back down the hallway in the other direction.

It all turned out to be a prank -- you can spot the human legs coming out of the the amazing raptor costume if you look closely. And for all we know the scared guy could very well be an actor. Regardless, it's still pretty epic.

According to UPI, the prank appeared on a Japanese show devoted to "gotcha" like these moments. The video was uploaded to YouTube last month to "let you know the splendor and joy of Japanese performing arts," according to the user on the video sharing site.

We don't know how it took weeks for this gem to start gaining worldwide notice, but we're glad it surfaced eventually did none the less.
