A messy prank known as "Gallon Smashing" has become a new Internet sensation.

The original video was made by three brothers who appear to like making messes.

In the video, the teens go around grocery stores pretending to slip while holding milk or juice.  The teens are seen throwing the milk or juice onto the floor while falling theatrically.

In many cases, the spilled milk or juice splashes on nearby shoppers, many of whom then rush to help the teens, not realizing it's a prank.

In one instance, an elderly woman is seen trying to help the fallen pranksters by offering her buggy as a means of support.

The video was uploaded to YouTube early February on the theCHAIZYchannel.

The YouTube channel does not say where or when the video was taken.

More than 2.5 million people have watched the video since it was uploaded.
