Punishment: As punishment, the loser Sal had to go in a coffee shop and get a laptop while the other guys added inappropriate sound effects like he was watching a pornography film, even though he really wasn't. An employee turned off the speakers saying Sal can't do that in public. Then Q forced him to turn it back on after the employee left.



  • On an episode of Impractical Jokers: Dinner Party, it was revealed that the inspiration for Sal's punishment came from an incident at an airport. Joe hijacked Sal's laptop and pulled up a pornographic website, then put the volume on full blast and left the laptop in a restroom stall, leaving Sal flustered and racing to turn off the sound. Additionally, during the actual punishment, the guys apparently got Sal to laugh by inserting John Mayer's "Your Body's a Wonderland" in between the sex sounds.
