An Indian student got more than he expected when he decided to tell his father he got his girlfriend pregnant.
In a video posted online, Prateek Verma, a 20-year-old college student who lives in India with his parents, explains on camera that he is going to play a prank on his father by telling him that he has impregnated his girlfriend.
But according to the Daily Mail, it didn't go as planned and he was violently attacked by his father after making the ill-judged announcement.
Speaking to his dad, Sunder Verma, Prateek says, “Dad, I need to talk to you about something.” He then asks if he remembered the girl he had been seeing to which the father replied, “Yes, that b****.”
Prateek then drops the bomb that he got her pregnant.
The 50-year-old father is not too pleased with the news and gives his son a swift kick before forcing him into a corner of the room and beating the crap out of him.
It's only when his father picks up a bottle and is ready to clobber the boy with it, that Prateek admits it was just a prank.
The video of the prank has gone viral and viewed more than 500,000 times since being uploaded to YouTube two weeks ago.
