Giannis Antetokounmpo surprises people at bus stop

Milwaukee Bucks All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo has proved his skills on the court this season, leading the team in points, assists, rebounds, steals and blocks.

And it turns out he’s pretty good at pranks, too.

On Thursday, Antetokounmpo tweeted an invitation for people to call him on his "work number." He followed up a few hours later, asking fans to keep an eye out on the Mountain Dew Facebook page for a surprise.

The surprise was unveiled Friday, as Mountain Dew released a video of the Greek Freak pranking unsuspecting NBA fans via a large monitor screen at a bus stop in Milwaukee.

As the unaware people settled in at the bus stop, the monitor would switch from a still Mountain Dew advertisement featuring Antetokounmpo to a live video call with him. Reactions to the surprise were priceless, and even better were the interactions between the NBA star and the fans.

Antetokounmpo also got a surprise of his own when NBA Hall of Famer Allen Iverson gave him a call.

The Greek Freak will return to the court for the Bucks on Friday when Milwaukee hosts the Detroit Pistons at 8 p.m. ET.
