Biography of Rémi Gaillard

Rémi Gaillard is a French comedian and prankster who gained incredible popularity through his short videos on the popular video-sharing platform, YouTube. Born on February 7, 1975, in Montpellier, France, Gaillard's early life did not hint at his future fame. He was not particularly fond of school and spent most of his time hanging out with friends on the streets. He even managed to lose his job at a shoe store when he stole a pair of Nike sneakers. However, instead of being discouraged, Gaillard armed himself with a camera and a list of prank ideas and took to the streets.

In his early pranks, Gaillard would often dress up in animal costumes and startle passersby with his behavior. However, as time went on, his sense of humor evolved, and in his newer videos, he often challenged social norms and conventions. For example, he would appear on the streets in a toy car from the video game "Mario Kart." But it was his more ambitious pranks that brought him the most popularity. He would infiltrate various sporting events and participate, pretending to be a player. After successfully making it onto the field during the final match of the Coupe de France, Gaillard appeared at several other important events, such as attempting to play for one of the teams in the French Volleyball Cup final and even making an appearance at a tennis tournament match.

Interestingly, Gaillard managed to stay on the field for several minutes each time before security personnel escorted him out. Although most of Gaillard's pranks are somehow related to sports, he also frequently appeared on the streets of French cities dressed as superheroes or villains. For example, in one of his videos, he appeared on the streets as Batman.

Overall, Gaillard's videos have been viewed over 1.4 billion times, with his most popular video, "Mario Kart," amassing over 60 million views. In March 2014, Gaillard released his first feature-length film, "N'importe qui." He also appeared in the popular documentary film "The Antics Roadshow," produced by Banksy.

Despite starting his career as a jokester after being fired from a store for theft, Gaillard has become one of the most successful comedians in the world. His pranks and videos have entertained millions of people around the globe, proving that humor can indeed be a means of making a living.
