How on earth did he think this is funny?
There’s a fine line between being funny and being cruel. And what this prankster dad just did to his wife definitely is nothing short of horrible.
American father Roman Atwood, convinced his unassuming partner into thinking he had thrown their youngest son off a balcony, to fall to his death.
The father-of-two set up cameras and with the help of his sons, undertook an elaborate plan to scare his wife into believing their toddler had been killed.
The trick, titled “Killing my own kid PRANK!!” was shared on YouTube at the end of last month and has been watched by almost 5 million people.
The prank starts with Roman playing upstairs with his son, who is wearing a Spiderman costume and mask.
Roman’s wife arrives home and greets them affectionately, before she is asked “to grab them some water” from downstairs.
While she is gone, Roman asks his youngest son to hide in his room, while his eldest son brings out a dummy, dressed in the same Spiderman outfit as his child.
