Is This The Scariest (And Funniest) Prank Ever?

Tuesday 9th July 2013

A man has filmed his girlfriend's terrified reaction to a prank he set up when she fell asleep on the sofa.

James Williams spent weeks planning the practical joke, designed to make his partner think that a woman was crawling out of the television, as in the horror film The Ring.

He created a ghost-like puppet out of papier-mache, rubber gloves, bubble wrap and balloons, then lay in wait for his girlfriend to fall asleep in front of the TV.

He then wheeled his contraption into place and filmed the results.

He wrote on his YouTube page: "I don't think I've ever seen a mouth open so wide screaming."
