A Youtube video showing a man playing a prank on his girlfriend has been viewed more than 2.5 million times in less than 24 hours (video below).
Roman Atwood, who has become renowned for his online pranks, set up Brittney Smith by convincing her that their son had been blown up in a quad bike accident, Daily Mail reported.
In the video, Atwood tells Smith that he and 3-year-old Kane have been testing a quad bike and want to buy it. He asks her to return to the car and fetch the checkbook so he can buy it.
While she is away, Atwood tells Kane to run and hide, before replacing his son on the bike with a dummy. The dummy looks similar to the 3-year-old, wearing the same helmet and clothing.
When Smith returns, the remote-controlled bike suddenly sets off driving. It heads towards some woods, making it appear as though Kane has lost control of the vehicle.
With the couple in hot pursuit, the bike goes over a jump and then bursts into flames after falling into a ditch.
Atwood is seen holding his girlfriend back from running into the fireball to try and save what she thinks is their son.
Smith is angered when she realizes what has happened.
“Don't touch me, I'm done. I'm done, honey, I can't do it,” Smith says in the video.
The video ends with Kane running up to his mother to give her a hug.
“You still love me, right?” Atwood asks Smith.
In a previous prank involving the supposed death of Kane, Atwood made Smith believe he had thrown the child off their balcony. Again, his trick was pulled off by using a manikin, according to Daily Mail.
The Ohio-based comedian claims over a billion views of his videos and more than 7 million followers on his Youtube channel.
