This video is bizarre in too many ways to count. If this is supposedly an example of what happens when this prank “goes wrong,” can I please be pointed to an example of when it went right? Are there any groups of friends who crack up over the time Ol’ Bill caught a face full of boiling water and had a layer of skin melt off?
As if the “prank” itself weren’t weird enough, the second half of the video takes a super unexpected turn. If you told me when I started that video that I would soon be serenaded by the woeful sounds of Alanis Morissette, I would’ve popped you right in the throat for lying to me. Don’t get me wrong, I’d put myself in the category of Alanis superfan (“Head Over Feet” is a go-to ‘raoke song for me), it’s just totally out-of-the-blue.
While the video itself might be weird, I’m totally on board with the general message of the PSA, which can be summarized as “Kids… Stop Being Fucking Idiots.”
