Jackson "Jack" Vale (born September 2, 1973) is an American YouTube personality, comedian, actor, and producer, who has a YouTube channel featuring hidden cameras and pranks. As of November 2019, his videos have over 475 million views and his channel has more than 1.5 million subscribers.[2][3][4]


Many of Vale's pranks are what he calls "Pooter" pranks. These involve Vale walking around in public making flatulence sounds, using a handheld device[4] and capturing the reactions of the people nearby on a hidden camcorder. On one occasion this resulted in a physical altercation between Vale and an elderly man (whose wife Vale used the device on nearby). The subsequent police intervention led to the man being banned from that specific supermarket. Many of his pranks are completed in Huntington Beach, California, Nevada, and near his home in the Columbia, Tennessee area.

Other pranks include "Paranoid", sketches in which Vale, pretending to be talking on his mobile phone, walks past customers in a shop or on the street and describes them to his imaginary conversational partner (in order to see whether they will react with paranoia), and "Nonsense", in which Vale confuses members of the public by approaching them and speaking gibberish.[citation needed]

Jack Vale's most elaborate prank to date which by most, is considered to be more of an experiment, is called "The Social Media Experiment". Vale searched hashtags in his local area and located people nearby. He then learned all about these people and convinced them he was psychic. The video was picked up by several national publications and he made appearances on various talk shows explaining how he did the experiment.
