Guess What's Trending on Twitter on Sept. 4. If you guessed the "Falling Floors Prank" you would be correct, and it is so real it's scary. But so is the YouTube video about the coffin in the elevator prank video and the meteor shower prank on unsuspecting office workers.
Prank videos have become so popular in pop culture that one website makes it their daily practice to tell online viewers which videos rank the funniest or most popular. This week their are three pranks that deserve the mention. They include the joke played on job applicants in Chile, who are made to think the world is ending thanks to an LG 84-inch Ultra HD TV set up to look like a large window in a high-rise office building.
As applicants are being interviewed by potential employers they are facing the window-like view when a meteor strike happens to hit the landscape outside. Needless to say, they jump up and express their shock. But that's nothing compared to the people in an elevator who suddenly realize the floor has fallen away beneath them in this prank video (0:34).
Check out how the clever pranksters set up the elevator prank joke a year ago on their unsuspecting victims here.
