The Janoskians are a group of five YouTube comedians from Melbourne, Australia renowned for their cringeworthy pranks
members of the public. Formed in 2010, the group now attracts rock-star welcomes
from hordes of screaming fans when it tours across the world and has signed deals with Sony and MTV.
Yet as the Janoskians have become more famous, their pranks have become ever more abusive, culminating in one video which showed them simulating masturbation in public places, including next to a young mother with a pram while telling her "your baby's sexy" and asking to see the infant's face. Following an outcry in Australia
, the video was removed from YouTube. The controversy has not checked the rising popularity of the group, whose channel has topped 1 million subscribers.
