English Magician Julius Dein Pranks His Israeli Grandmother


Julius Dein is a London-born internet personality, with over 6.1 million online followers. Since his internet career began, his videos have been viewed more than 500 million times, with many of his pranks and social experiments attracting major media and television attention. Julius has one of the highest Snapchat followings in the United Kingdom, in excess of 350,000 Snapchat followers.

Dein, a North Western Reform Synagogue member who grew up in Hampstead Garden Suburb, said: "My aspiration is to perform street magic on TV shows."I absolutely love to perform. I love watching people freak out. It is like a drug." He attended JFS, a modern orthodox school that's the biggest Jewish school in Europe. 

Julius' pranks on the public are often positively received, being described as "hilarious" and news sites have covered some of his videos. One video, where Dein uses a fake 6 foot snake to scare people and record what the Daily Mail describes as "their hilarious reactions", went viral on Facebook, being shared over 148,000 times by June 2016. 

One of Dein's pranks, where he tried to convince strangers on the street that he was their long-lost son was described as a "hilarious stunt", but did note that not all victims took the prank well. The video received over two million views. 

In this video, Dein gives his Israeli grandmother a few scares with a pierced tongue, a bloody hand, and an exploding phone.

Enjoy!
