WASHINGTON – A scary prank involving unsuspecting people riding in an elevator in Brazil is going viral online.
In the video, a series of people get into the elevator and are unsettled when the lights flicker and go out while they are riding.
That’s when an actor gets into the elevator with them, scaring them when the lights come back on.
It’s cruel, but entertaining as the reactions vary from stunned to genuine fright.
