Two British YouTubers, known for their pranks and stunts, are trying a new one: Live burial. The pair has dug a grave in their back yard, built a coffin and buried themselves in it, intending to stay for 24 hours while live tweeting, streaming and Instagram-posting the adventure.
Live-streaming from the grave
So far Jay Swingler and Rommel Henry claims to have attracted about 8000 viewers to their channel to watch them be bored and chat about topics such as whether or not tomatoes are a fruit. They will be updating the followers of their channel, ‘TGFbro’, from underground until 8 pm local time. The duo from Dudley in the West Midlands area of England is already somewhat well known for typical YouTube pranks such as running into the cars of strangers stopped at the light, diving into a gigantic tub of chili sauce and knocking on doors asking people to play Pokemon GO inside their house.
While the gravediggers seem to be mostly suffering from cramps and a lack of entertainment, other stunts have gone badly wrong. Potentially dangerous stunts and pranks, filmed in the hopes of going viral and achieving online fame, have attracted new attention lately after Monalisa Perez, 19, accidentally shot and killed her boyfriend as part of one. According to family members, Pedro Ruiz had been pressuring her for weeks to go through with a shooting video where he was to block the shot from a gun with a book.
Unfortunately, while this is a common trope in fiction and movies, at close range, a book will not necessarily block a bullet. The couple’s child was among the people watching as the stunt went badly wrong. Perez claims that her boyfriend had come up with the idea and was pressuring her to go through with it, hoping for more views and likes.
