A clever prank from a show in Brazil is being hailed as one of the most terrifying wind-ups of all time.
Recorded as part of Brazil's variety show Programa Silvio Santos, the prank involves unknowing participants entering an elevator which appears to lose power and plunges in to darkness. When the lights come back on the terrified individual is greeted with a ghostly girl standing in the lift with them, clutching a doll and screaming every few seconds. The prank was so terrifying that many of the unwitting targets ended up cowering in the corner.
The ghost girl is said to be based off the character from horror film 'The Ring'. The show's producers might have pulled off one of the most terrifying pranks of all time but the jape wasn't without its critics. Some argued that the nature of the prank was so disturbing that there was a risk that it could have given some of the victims a heart attack.
"Footage from Brazilian TV showing unwitting lift takers scared within an inch of their lives by a disturbing prank has become an internet hit."
