We already know how fun, and sometimes a little bit hazardous, pranks are. But do you know whatâ€™s more fun than aÂ prank? AÂ Halloween prank. This is a 2-week long celebration in a year wherein itâ€™s perfect to pull pranks not to make people laugh but frightened. Most HalloweenÂ pranksters do it for their own pleasure and not all of their victims enjoy it.
In the city of Depok, West Java, Indonesia, twoÂ teenage boys pulled a prank on their neighbors. Unfortunately for them, their neighbors were quick enough to know it was a prank and reported them to the authorities.
The teenagersÂ dressed themselves up asÂ PocongsÂ also known asÂ wrapped ghosts.Â Pocongs are Indonesian and Malaysian ghosts. Theyâ€™re believed to be zombie-like ghosts wrapped in white clothing from head to toe.
The teenage boys admitted theyÂ got the inspiration for the prank onÂ Instagram. They also admitted to watching a lot of silly videos online that made them want to pull the prank.
According to the neighborhoodâ€™s head,Â Arsyad:
â€śThe locals punished them by making them sleep in a graveyard near Gelora field. They were told to sleep there until their parents came to pick them up. They are still young so we did not do anything else.â€ť
But besides the punishment by their neighbors, they also got a handful from their parents at their home. According toÂ Next Shark, their parents scolded them and took away their smartphones. We can safely say that their parents are also not a fan of Halloween pranks.
Although these boys werenâ€™t able to successfully pull off their Halloween prank, itâ€™s still eligible to be a part of the many Halloween stories this year. Maybe next year they can be part of the Halloween prank stories.
