Attack of the bushman in this fantastic prank on a main Dublin City street.

We can’t stop giggling at this hilarious prank played on unsuspecting pedestrians on a main street near Stephen’s Green in Dublin. Created by YouTuber Nickxar, both howls of fear and screams of laughter can be heard as the passers-by are set upon by seemingly innocent bush stations the edge of the sidewalk.

Thankfully everyone took it in good spirits and one woman can even be seen running back to give the walking bush a hug after she had been set upon. We're not sure that we'd be so gracious if we were frightened half to death by something large, green, and covered in leaves.
