Uh oh! YouTube prankster Vitaly Zdorovetskiy got himself into some MAJOR trouble on May 25. The ‘Natural Born Pranksters’ star was arrested after climbing the Hollywood sign for his big ‘welcome back’ prank. Even crazier? He snapchatted the whole thing! See the video, here.
Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, 24, may have taken it too far this time! The YouTube prankster got himself arrested on May 25, when he scaled the Hollywood sign as part of a “welcome back” video after taking some time off to shoot a feature film. What’s even more shocking is that he was Snapchatting from the sign when the LAPD came for him. Here’s the crazy video!
This is sooo crazy! Vitaly got himself arrested by the LAPD on May 25 when he climbed up on the Hollywood sign with a sign reading “I’m Back.” He foreshadowed the stunt on May 24, when he tweeted “Tomorrow Filming A Huge Stunt..The welcome BACK video..Thursday Miami...” Vitaly has taken some time off from his pranking channel on YouTube to film a feature movie called Natural Born Pranksters with fellow web star Roman Atwood.
While on the sign, Vitaly was on Snapchat, showing off his handiwork. Ironically he was rapping Fat Joe’s song “nothing can stop me, I’m all the way up!” Apparently, the LAPD could stop him. He also shot the helicopters circling him before police came and forced him down from the sign, which is clearly marked “no trespassing.”
Tomorrow Filming A Huge Stunt..The welcome BACK video..Thursday Miami..🙌

Many fans documented the crazy stunt, from his statement on the sign, to recording himself walking back down the trail toward the base of the mountain. He appeared to be cuffed while police escorted him part of the way down. The regular penalty for climbing the sign is a fine, and for all of this free publicity, it jut might be worth it.
