Remi Gaillard, is a Youtube content creator, professional prankster, and former professional footballer. His rise to fame / popularity is largely due to his outlandish and often questionable taste videos and pranks from his YouTube channel
in the early 2000's.
From dressing up as Mario to race motorists to donning a speed camera costume to troll motorists, there doesn't seem to be a crazy idea he won't a) run with and b) make hilarious in the process. He even once stayed locked inside a cage for 87 hours to raise funds for animal shelters and shed light on animal cruelty.
Most recently, however, Gaillard has trolled the media and people of France with an epic stunt around UFO's spotted flying over France. The mystery of an unidentified flying object spotted several times in the skies above Occitanie last week has been solved after Remi took credit for the stunt.
The prank was in part to demonstrate how easily you can trick masses of people into believing just about anything if you can fool a credible source
into backing your claims.
