Cruelest Prank Ever: Husband Sets Up Cameras and Pretends to Throw Toddler Son Off the Balcony in Front of His Horrified Wife… and She Doesn’t Find it Funny (WATCH)
A video that shows a husband pretending to throw his toddler son off a balcony to the horror of his wife has gone viral. He laughs it off as “just a prank”, but his wife clearly didn’t find it funny.
The stunt, which was posted on YouTube on November 30 and already has almost 5 million views, begins with Atwood playing with his son, who is dressed in a Spider-Man costume covering his face, on the top floor of their Los Angeles, California home.
Atwood and his son are greeted lovingly by the boy’s mother, who is then sent downstairs ‘to grab them some water’ so that they can prepare the prank behind her back.
Atwood enlists the help of his older son who leads his younger brother into the other room them substitutes the toddler for a dummy, which Atwood then tosses over the railing.
His wife runs downstairs and screams in paralyzing fear as she sees the boy falling to the ground below and laying motionless on the ground as though he had died.
She unveils the boy’s mask to reveal a dummy under the costume and then proceeds to shoot a disgusted glance at her husband.
‘Why would you do that?!’ she screams still trembling in shock.
‘It’s just for fun,’ Atwood responds as he shrugs his shoulders.
First, the wife definitely seems to be in on the prank, as she was entirely too calm about the situation, for someone who was supposedly in terror for her son’s life. Second, regardless of whether she knew or not, this prank was cruel and not at all funny. Killing your child is not something to joke about, and if this man can’t understand that, then maybe he shouldn’t be a father.
