Orem, June 14 (THAINDIAN NEWS) UVU College Student, Andrew Hales, who became an internet sensation after uploading several videos in his YouTube channel “Losing All Hope Was Freedom” (name taken from a line from the Brad Pitt movie “Fight Club”) has unveiled his latest prank video.

In the new clip, part of Hales’ highly popular web series “Holding Hands With Strangers,” Hales walks up to a random individual on campus at Orem’s Utah Valley University. After holding the stranger’s hand, he then waits for the reaction of the prank’s victims, which range from surprise and laughter to pure anger.
