This prank is less than 48 hours old and it's already managing to cruelly . . . but hilariously . . . FREAK OUT PARENTS all over the country.
There's a comedian named Nathan Fielder who hosts a show on Comedy Central called "Nathan For You". And on Wednesday, he tweeted the idea: Text your parents, quote, "got 2 grams for $40?" Then text, quote, "sorry, ignore that text."
In other words, you pretend you meant to text a DRUG DEALER, but accidentally texted your parents. So kids started doing it, and posting screenshots of the results. And as you'd expect, their parents' reactions were PERFECT.
One guy's mom wrote him, quote, "2 grams of whaaaaat? You're freaking me out!! Erik, what the hell? You're giving me a heart attack. Seriously! Now you're doing cocaine? Ganja? What??? God help me. And you."
One kid's dad wrote back, in all caps, quote, "WTF. YOU'RE GOING TO REHAB. I'M NOT KIDDING. YOUR MOTHER AND I ARE ON THE WAY TO PICK YOU UP FROM COLLEGE TONIGHT."
This will continue being funny until it induces its first heart attack. At which time it will become less funny . . . but only slightly.
