A live streamer’s “prank” ended in a weapon being drawn after the jokester took things too far.
The video of the unknown prankster surfaced this week and quickly gained attention over the actions of one would-be victim.
In the nearly minute-long clip, the live streamer is seen first running up to a car and dumping the contents of a red gasoline can over it. The driver, who was in the car when the sick “prank” began, is told by the punk “I’m burning your car down, bro. F*** your car man, it’s over.”
The terror for this driver didn’t end there; the punk with the fuel canister began sparking his lighter while his victim demanded to know why he was being menaced.
Instead of explaining, the prankster chases the terrified driver while splashing him with the gasoline can. Finally, he admits that it’s water.
The next would-be victim was not the running type, and the prankster nearly paid the price for it.
In the second part of the video, an older man is seen getting into his truck before the punk with the gasoline can strikes again. Pouring the liquid over the vehicle’s hood, the prankster shouts “Kanye 2020.”
The man comes around the side of the car and reveals himself to be armed.
Seeing the pistol causes an instant attitude adjustment in the prankster, who rushes to tell the man it’s a prank and the liquid is water.
The old man then gives a life lesson this punk isn’t soon to forget. Watch the encounter below to see his reaction.

After exchanging some tense words, the older man gives a warning that this punk is sure to remember.
“You almost died, you stupid son of a b****,” he told the prankster.
It’s clear to see why this goes well beyond a normal prank, and why the armed driver’s response was more than appropriate. A gasp;ome fire can easily be deadly, and even a “safe” inferno can still rob someone of property worth tens of thousands.
The gas can itself is a key part in this: The prankster is trying his hardest to make it appear as though he’s pouring out gasoline. An armed parent with young children strapped into the car might not have been as hesitant to shoot if they saw this and felt their kids’ lives were in danger.
The prankster’s reaction in the first part of the video is also telling. Instead of explaining the “joke” once terror was achieved, he radically escalated the situation by chasing an innocent man.
Thanks to the truck driver’s tempered response, this situation was resolved without any injuries. Hopefully, this prankster will keep this lesson in mind the next time he tries to go viral online.
