image for Mr Bubbles Double-Dares to turn Yellowstone's Old Faithful Geyser into a Bubble Bath
Has Mr Bubbles set his sights too high in attempting to foam Old Faithful geyser?

London, England - Flushed with success at his recent conversion of London's Trafalgar Square's famous fountain into a foaming bubble bath, prankster Mr Bubbles has set his sights even higher. He's off to Yellowstone National Park to try to do the same to the Old Faithful geyser.

The suspiciously cute 19 year old student from Kilburn has joined in a challenge, where users on a social network site post videos of their feats to earn bragging rights amongst their peers. The foam craze recently started in Germany where fountains were struck in Berlin as well as in Lyons, France.

Mr Bubbles and his band of merry hoodies jumped into the Trafalgar Square fountain yesterday in full view of shocked tourists, pigeons, and illegal DVD dealers. After the teenagers quickly released their loads of bubbly liquids, the famous fountain was transformed into a sea of foam.

"It was squeak," said Mr Bubbles, apparently coining a new slang term.

"Everyone loved it. A crowd foamed and started playing with the bubbles. It was like those Naked Foam parties in Ibiza. Even the police joined in," frothed Mr Bubbles.

"I was a bit grossed out when Little Britain's Bubbles Devere jumped into the fountain naked though," admitted the shy teenager.

The foaming fountain provided more than frolicking fun for onlookers it seems. A number of East European immigrant families were seen hauling their washing into Trafalgar Square and taking advantage of the free detergent fountain.

Ariel Surf and her sister-in-law Persil Octagon and their families are recent immigrants from Romania.

"This is great, fantastic!" exclaimed Ariel, beating a pair of stone-washed wet jeans across the face of one of Trafalgar Square's famous lion statues.

Her sister-in-law Mrs Octogon agreed. "What a country! Boris Johnson is greatest mayor of London. We now feel so at home here washing our clothes for free in public square. Before all our benefits money we spent at Laundromat."

The website behind the stunts, dubbed 'Jackass meets Facebook', has reportedly grown to over a million crazed users since its 2007 launch.

Some other dares and pranks have been equally amazing compared to the current foam craze.

Frequent prankster Gunther von Hagens, the notorious showman Dr Death, has dared to enter one of his Bodyworks plastination corpses to run for American president this year.

"I never thought he'd get the nomination, let alone pull this close to winning," said Dr von Hagens. "This is my one creation that scares even me."

"I'm not too worried, though. If he wins, he'll be disqualified as soon as I reveal that he is really a Chinese prisoner corpse and not American."

Meanwhile, Mr Bubbles is making preparations to foam Old Faithful. "I practiced quite a bit in my bathroom to get the Trafalgar Square foaming just right," he explained. "But Old Faithful, I just don't know."

"The highest recorded eruption of Old Faithful is 185 feet (56 m) high, and eruptions regularly occur about 60 minutes apart," explained a performance-wary Mr Bubbles.

"I know I'm 19, but that may be asking a lot of me. I'll give it my best shot, though, and if I make it, my buddies will hang their hooded heads in shame."
