The Impractical
Punishment Fans
Think Is Too
Painful To Watch
truTV’s “Impractical Jokers” has produced many hilarious, memorable, and downright cringeworthy “punishment” pranks since 2011. These punishments vary wildly — from Sal Vulcano feeding a grizzly bear fried chicken to Brian “Q” Quinn dressing as a clown at a kid's birthday party — and there’s one particular punishment that fans have deemed too difficult to watch.
Fans on Reddit came together and selected the prank when Q went to a Little League game and heckled the children as the most cringeworthy. Q shouted horrible things at the players, such as, “Macy, you want daddy to love you or what?” to his “daughter” (who was a paid actor), causing her to cry.
Many fans worried that Q came dangerously close to getting jumped by the other parents. Q later answered some questions regarding the punishment and whether the children knew they were being filmed, saying, “The only one who did was the little girl who played my daughter [...] I believe they did not tell them because they wanted all the real reactions that we got.”
