He Wakes Up And The Doctor Tells Him That He’s Been In A Coma For 10 Years. What Happens Next? Woah…
This is one of the biggest pranks ever pulled by this YouTube duo, and it was so shocking that it’s been seen by over 23 million people. While the “prank” can be viewed in a humorous light, the reason behind it is much more serious. The idea for this prank came when one of their best friends was arrested and charged with a 5th DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol) and they decided that they had had enough. When they realized that he had passed out drunk in his vehicle, they launched their intricate prank and set up an elaborate hospital room.
They had equipment brought in, hooked him up to an IV, and even set up a fake TV news anchor to give an overview of what was going on in the world featuring some of the famous icons from 2013. The actors played their parts and once their friend woke up, he was convinced that the “10 year coma” was his new reality. He begged to see his daughter, but first, his friend needed to give him a strong dose of reality.
While he was laughing, his friends were not. Although it was a very amazing prank, I can’t help but feel that it was mostly bittersweet. So many lives are affected by drunk drivers, and I hope that this man was able to learn his lesson. Don’t drink and drive!
