Oklahoma – an 18-year-old boy has been rushed to hospital with severe leg and head injuries after an attempted prank went disastrously wrong. The young man climbed under his friend’s car while his friend was at work in a local fast-food restaurant. But his friend came out of work and climbed into his car completely unaware that anyone was hiding under it. When he tried to drive off he noticed something very unusual about the way it rolled forward.
That was because it had rolled over his friend.
This is not the first time we’ve written about pranks gone wrong. Earlier this year two Youtube stars suffered a terrible tragedy when one of their stunt videos went wrong and the star was shot dead by his pregnant girlfriend after he failed to stop a bullet with a phonebook.
In this particular case we’re very interested in what the prank actually was. We can follow the story up to the point where the guy climbs under his friend’s car but then what? Was he going to jump out and go “ooga booga boo!” or was he going to… surprise him in another way? It’s not very clear where the prank was going to go. In fact, we’re struggling to think of how this scenario could have played out in any other way than what it did. Climbing under a car and not telling the driver, at least in our eyes, must have a 100% guaranteed chance of being run over.
But we suppose he’s still alive and he should just count his lucky stars. Also we hope as soon as he’s feeling better his mother gives him a good walloping because God damn, does he need it. This has to be one of the stupidest things anyone could ever do. Here’s to hoping it remains the stupidest thing he ever does.
