Video: Brothers Convince Younger Sister There’s a Zombie Apocalypse
These guys have a pretty sophisticated prank set up.
The YouTube user Cabot Phillips, who has posted a number of funny videos in the past two years, takes his pranks a step further and decides to trick his own sister.
Identified as Millicent, she is getting her wisdom teeth pulled and will still be aloof due to medication from the procedure.
The three minute and 40 second long video opens with one brother taking Millicent for the surgery—but after just 20 seconds, the prank begins.
As they’re on their way home, an emergency broadcast appears to come over the car radio, claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“The Centers for Disease Control in Washington has issued a viral outbreak warning. State and local officials have reported cases of high fever, nausea, death and even cannibalism. Stay in place until further notice,” the message said.
With the help of mom, Millicent is immediately convinced that the outbreak is the real deal, and begins to show signs of panic.
“We’re not the U.S. Marines, why can’t we just start going now?” she questioned.
The brothers then begin filling the car, initially with garden tools seemingly to fight off the zombies—Millicent grows irritated, saying, “we have guns, why are you putting garden equipment in the car?”
She is then shown how to use a garbage pick-up tool as a defense weapon.
Angrily, she asks: “What is this supposed to do for me? Get me a knife. How am I supposed to defend myself?”
The brothers then begin to pressure her with ridiculous questions and she appears to grow even more nervous.
“Listen, we can only take one pet, which pet? The cat or the dog?”
Screaming, she replies: “The cat, you idiot.”
“What about the dog?” he asked.
“He’s the worst, he’s already dying. Leave him, get the cat.”
After being handed the cat, they convince Millicent that they’ll be meeting their father in Mexico. She is asked if she remembers how to speak Spanish from high school.
She replies: “I can say pants.”
Once again, they ask her a number of ridiculous questions, only this time they cut the tape and film her reaction to learning the truth about the zombie apocalypse—which is priceless.
