Ever seen someone with a hairstyle that makes you want to snip it off? That’s exactly what a bunch of video pranksters did when they unleashed themselves on unsuspecting members of the public.

In the last year or so, a slightly odd hair trend has started to spread. It’s been dubbed ‘the knot’ or the ‘man bun’ and it features a short back and sides with a stunted pony-tail on top.

A group of pranksters from Cape Town who have named themselves Derick Watts & The Sunday Blues, decided to see what would happen if they went around cutting off buns from victims as part of a ‘stop the knot’ campaign.

Seems like a bastard trick to us, so we definitely don’t recommend that you try his at home. After all running with scissors is a mother’s worst nightmare, just after playing with matches.

The video is now going viral on the web. You can see it below and for more great footage go to BattleCam.com, where there are hundreds of great clips to choose from
