Be afraid. Be very afraid. Be as afraid as the poor people in the video above.
For most people being stuck in an elevator without power or light is a best experience ever. But throw in a little ghost girl who seemingly suddenly appears from nowhere and it becomes terrifying.
A ghostly girl appears out of nowhere in a moving lift, reducing members of the public to quivering wrecks – in one of the most shocking prank videos ever made.
A prank organized by Brazilian prank TV show Programa Silvio Santos is responsible for this, probably the most terrifying prank we’ve ever seen. The TV show really knows how to get their victims to scream. For this prank, they had an unsuspecting victims take a special elevator.
In the video the adults who are set up are seen arriving in reception and are shown to a lift.
The Daily Mail reports, they think they are ascending few floors, the elevator would inexplicably stop, and lights would go out.
Under the cover of darkness a little child, dressed like the ghost girl from The Ring, emerges from a trap door at the side and when the lights return they are greeted by her. The girl has actually climbed through a secret door in the lift through the deep darkness.
When she’s spotted, she screams in the subjects’ faces, scaring the life out of them – and sending them cowering into the corner of the lift.
Two women who had been previously looked at themselves in the mirror, are so horrified by her appearance they clutch each other in the corner.
Reactions range from jumping in the air and cowering in the corner. Some people pray and others weep while they frantically press buttons in a bid to escape.
The final victim – a middle-aged man – is shown shaking with fear before bolting when the doors open.
With a pale face, scraggly hair and holding a doll she is a terrifying and unexpected sight. Sometimes she stands still and simply screams in their face, extracting a scream from the terrified adult.
None of the unlucky victims realize that it is a prank and as the lights flicker on and off she reappears from the hiding place.
The spooky spoof first appeared on Brazilian TV – but has quickly gone viral online, attracting more than one million views in just 48 hours.
It seems that the Internet users really loved this idea. Easy to say, especially, when you are sitting in front of your computer, and not stuck in a dark elevator with a girl screaming.
According to the Nine News, the LiveLeak user from Sweden was extremely excited about it saying: “This was the best f—ing prank (sic) ever!”
An American user commented on the footage: “I could watch this all day”.
The Silvio Santos show is a popular program hosted by billionaire Silvio Santos, who owns the SBT network that broadcasts the program.
Ghost kids aren’t funny. Especially not in tiny, enclosed spaces. You win, Brazil.
