Update: This “prank” was actually a viral marketing stunt by an online gaming company. Convincing though, right?

This football fanatic doesn’t know it, but his prankster girlfriend has an extra (hidden) remote control for the TV. Hidden away, she picks the perfect moments to switch it off.

How does he react? Let’s just say he gets a little worked up. Just watch…


Genius prank… but we can barely look as he smashes the screen and his MacBook into tiny pieces. :(
