The Hollywood prankster who was sentenced to community service and psychological counselling after lunging at Brad Pitt on the red carpet of Angelina Jolie's new movie last month (May14) has been caught on camera having a merry old time during his punishment.

Video footage obtained by The Hollywood Reporter shows Ukrainian journalist Vitalii Sediuk goofing off and riding a merry-go-round while serving his court-ordered work sentence in Los Angeles.

Sediuk, who has also been ordered to stay away from Pitt and Jolie, was assigned to collect litter in Los Angeles' Griffith Park, but it appears he has also been spending time partaking in leisurely activities.

In the new video, the prankster, sporting an orange safety vest, can be seen shaking a pair of maracas with a group of percussionists and playing conga drums.

While, in another photo also obtained by the publication, a smiling Sediuk sits astride a carved horse on the park's famous merry-go-round.

Sediuk has a string of unpleasant celebrity encounters on his hit list - he was arrested at the 2012 Grammy Awards after storming the stage, he received a slap from Will Smith as he attempted to kiss the star at a red carpet event, and he was apprehended by police in Cannes after trying to dive under America Ferrera's dress during a red carpet event at the film festival last month (May14).

He spent three nights in jail following his Pitt stunt at the Malificent premiere on 28 May (14) and pleaded no contest to one count each of battery and disturbing the peace.
