Is TV Ghost prank a step too far?

November 29th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Ok, we at FTN love a good pranks. Even a scary one… but surely there’s a limit?

The clip below is from a Brazilian TV show, a Candid Camera/You’ve Been Framed type set-up. An unsuspecting member of the public is the victim of a gag unbeknownst to them. Which is ok, we suppose.

Except, what if the gag is life threatening? You will see what we mean when we say that there are two immediate problems here.

1) The victim could surely, if in poor health, be prone to heart attack or stroke? Or perhaps anxiety, stress, nightmares? Isn’t this a type of harrassment?

2) The little girl. In this situation there’s two possible outcomes: you run or you fight. Therefore, if the wrong person got in that lift and this was carried out, the girl could be in serious trouble…

Anyway, take a look and let us know your thoughts…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
