Grab your pitchforks and light your torches and let’s get outraged about Netflix’s Prank Encounters for the dumbest reason.

The little “Stranger Things” kid has struck himself a pretty impressive deal. At 16, Gaten Matarazzo has sold his very own prank show to Netflix but instead of congratulations he has been slammed and ridiculed for something as small as the show’s synopsis.

Each episode of this terrifying and hilarious prank show takes two complete strangers who each think they’re starting their first day at a new job.

It’s business as usual until their paths collide and these part-time jobs turn into full-time nightmares.

These two sentences has lead a lot of people to believe that the pretense of the show is scarier than the pranks. At first glance it appears that, not only are they going to prank to strangers, they trolling unemployed people into thinking they have a job. This isn’t true at all.

Prank Encounters is an actual job

In Prank Encounters two strangers do actually find work, albeit temporary, extremely short, work. They are hired to do a menial task that takes an hour. During this hour they will unknowingly be pranked by the show’s host.

There is nothing wrong or shocking about this and people should feel a little sheepish for following the outrage trend. We know very little about Gaten Matarazzo’s new show at this point. For all we know it could be set in high-school like Netflix’s American Vandal. Gaten is, after all, only 16 years old. I very much doubt that he knows the ins-and-outs of employment life and it would make more sense if he based the show on what he knows and what he is comfortable with.

Did you know?

Let’s stop spend so much of our time and energy getting upset over such vague things. We should be congratulating the young star for his accomplishment rather than blasting him with our own assumptions in outrage. So.. congratulations Gaten Matarazzo!

It might be smarter to assume what kind of prank show this is going to be instead of speculating how this show ruins lives. I am hoping for a Ghost Hunters meets Punkd kind of deal… wouldn’t that be sweet.
