PAUL SR. GETS PRANKED
Story & Video..........
Airs Thursday 9/6 TLC
The latest build for the boys at Orange County Choppers was
a bike for Silver State Helicopters of
New Braunfels, TX. The helicopter company agreed to a
"chopper for a chopper" They customized a Bell L-4 helicopter with flames
Chopper" logos while Paulie and the guys did their magic on a custom chopper build for
the helicopter company.
The dramatic unveiling of the bike included it being brought in
suspended from a
helicopter in front of a crowd of spectators.
The catch: "Mikey" is the co-pilot, As the bike was hovering over
the crowd it suddenly
dropped to the ground and exploded into flames. A crew member
engulfed in flames added
to the drama...the loudspeakers announced that "Mikey accidentally
hit the drop switch"
Suddenly Paul Jr. appears riding the real bike!
It was a fantastic prank designed to fool the crowd and Paul Sr.
Great Job Boys!.. .Can't wait for this one to air!
The much awaited "prank" show finally aired and
although it was another great build the anticipated
surprise prank was sort of lame. For some reason the
part where the guy goes up in flames was cut. Paul
Sr's reaction to the whole thing was not what we
have come to expect from "Pop". His normally hot
headed reaction we love so much would have been
completely appropriate in this case but to our
surprise he barley showed a lick of emotion.
We would have expected "size 12's" to be thrown all
over the place after witnessing a $100k+ chopper
destroyed by a Mikey's screw up instead, we got non
of that. In a way I'm glad, I would rather see his
natural reaction to what happened rather than see
the man try to act.
Pop, we love you anyway..... keep kickin' ass!
