Most pranks on YouTube use fear, violence or sexuality to get the laughs. But not English content creator and mad engineer Colin Furze; he uses wheelie bins, and people get pranked all the same.

While ye olde “jump out of a bin” is a time-honoured prank, Furze goes to the next level by taking himself out of the equation and making his bin into, essentially, a radio controlled (RC) car.

To do this, the mechanism from a motorised wheelchair was installed into the bottom of the bin, with the driving motors added to a new set of rubber wheels.

Steering the bin is a duel servo set-up which translates movement from the remote control onto the joystick from the wheelchair. And that’s it. With some batteries installed the man and his creation took to the streets of England.
