Brazilian Show Returns with New Even More Scary Corpse Elevator Prank [Video]

The merry japesters who brought the terrifying “Ghost in an elevator” prank are back – and this time they’ve got a dead body. A video of the practical joke shows three men wheeling an upright coffin into an elevator just before its doors close.

After the video of the little girl, which has been dubbed by many as “the most terrifying TV prank ever“, the Brazilian television practical joke show “Silvio Santos” came back again on Sunday with yet another hilarious elevator prank video, which totally screws with people’s heads.

Imagine getting on an elevator, then a few dudes bring in a coffin and set it in the elevator with you. First of all, most people would have left right then and there.

But, no, these people seem cool with it.  That is until the elevator ‘gets stuck’ and a corpse just happens to fall out of the coffin.

The spoof is the latest shocking stunt set up by presenter Silvio Santos – Brazil’s answer to Jeremy Beadle.

It first aired on his show, Programa Silvio Santos – but has gone viral online in a matter of hours after footage was uploaded on YouTube.

The Silvio Santos show is a popular program hosted by billionaire Silvio Santos, who owns the SBT network that broadcasts the program.

The Sun writes, undertakers are shown loading a coffin into a lift before racing back to pick up a wreath.

But the doors close before the men can return – leaving each horrified occupant trapped inside with the corpse.

A corpse bursts out of a coffin, comes to life and attacks the occupants of an elevator in this version of a TV prank.

One panic-stricken man manages to break his way out of the lift, while a woman is forced to fight off the ‘zombie’ when it crawls across the floor towards her.
Special mention goes to the man who uses his girlfriend as a human shield.

There’s another unlikely comedy moment when the coffin tumbles over, squashing the ‘corpse’ – while an intended victim looks on bemused.

It’s not the first time Silvio Santos has pranked people in a lift.

Last month members of the public were reduced to quivering wrecks by a ghostly girl who appeared from nowhere – after sneaking in through a hidden trap door.

For this prank, they had an unsuspecting victims take a special elevator.

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.

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.

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.
