We’ve got another addition to the “Prank Videos of People Who Just Had Their Wisdom Teeth Out” genre, also known as “Things My Loved Ones Must Promise Never To Do To Me If They Ever Want To Speak To Me Again” — and this time they added zombies!
These two oh-so-clever brothers managed to convince their little sister that the zombie apocalypse was happening while she was stoned on pain medication on the way home from the dentist. They staged a fake Emergency Broadcast System announcement about a viral outbreak, had their mom call acting like there was an emergency, and pretended like they were going to flee to Mexico.
Here’s the thing: it’s all very funny how she falls for the joke and starts freaking out, but she actually sounds like exactly the kind of person you’d want on your team in the event of zombies. When her brothers start piling random garden tools into the car to use as weapons, she says, “A garden hoe isn’t what we want! We have guns, why are you putting garden equipment in the car?!”
Then they say she has to choose between saving the dog or the cat and she yells “THE CAT, YOU IDIOT!” pointing out that the dog is dumb and old and would only slow them down. Later she shoots down a suggestion that they swing by Costco. “It’s going to be a bloodbath in there!”
Take away a few of her sillier moments like mumbling that she can say “pants” in Spanish, and you’ve got that character in the zombie movie who manages to survive while her foolish family members get themselves killed by making dumb mistakes.
It won’t be so funny when zombies are eating your brains, guys.
Our host Shira Lazar has more, including a reassuring follow-up showing this girl doesn’t really hate her dog.
