If there's a prank to be done, you can bet your ass that some wannabe fame hungry YouTuber has already thought it up and done it, but this is really scrapping the barrel.
Sam Pepper, who previously disgraced himself online with a prank video titled "Fake Hand Ass Pinch Prank" which did exactly what it said on the tin, decided that the only way to up the ante was to kidnap a 'friend' and convince them that he'd just shot their other friend in the head. Lovely right?
Thankfully the rest of the internet seems to be agreed that this is one of the most horrible and desperate attempts for fame so far.
I'd film myself pranking Sam Pepper by pounding his face into paste so thin he would have to be identified by his fingerprints.

I once thought Sam Pepper was alright, however, his recent video disgusts me. Nobody should ever exploit absolute desperation and terror...
