The elaborate pranks escalated the shock factor as Knoxville and his cutie-pie youngster co-star causes havoc at local events. Knoxville explains how the pranks played out and how he introduced himself to the stunned participants.
GTA V is a stunner of game, in just six weeks Rockstar has sold over 29 million copies. That is a mouthful!

It seems GTA V has no age ceiling to those who can enjoy the wacky world of game play that involves releasing some pent-up frustration. Playing any game, regardless it is a more innocent game such as RPG favorite Fantasy Fantasy to button-masher friendly Mortal Kombat or GTA, game playing is a great way to release stress. Everything, including gaming is recommended in strict moderation. With most things handled visually or technically, taking a break from the screen to enjoy a walk or time out with friends is always encouraged.
For now, it is pretty awesome to see grandparents sitting back and relaxing with technology they never experienced during their own childhood.
