Jerome Jarre Gets Interrogated by the FBI After Changing Into a Speedo and Pool Toy on a Flight

YouTube star Jerome Jarre (previously) staged a silly prank in which he changed into a Speedo and inflatable turtle pool toy on a flight from Mexico to Miami. In a video that also shows the prank itself, Jarre says he was escorted from the plane by police and interrogated by the FBI who told him, “This is the silliest thing I’ve had to work on in my entire career.”

Although Jarre says he was threatened with arrest and revocation of his U.S. visa, it appears he has not faced any serious legal action since the incident.
