Coffin Elevator Prank Spooks Victims to “Death”

News

If you are wary of elevators, be happy you weren’t caught “dead” on this one.

With over 5,000,000 views on YouTube, Brazil’s hidden-camera prank show titled Program Silvio Santos took their ideas to another level.

The set up goes like this: funeral home employees station a coffin in an elevator with an “unsuspecting” person and then leave to get a flower wreath. They ask the passenger to hold the door for a minute but “coincidentally” the elevator doors close by the time they return. Thus the coffin door flies open, and the not-so-dead corpse comes to life, sending the passenger into a screaming fit.
