Detroit, Michigan – A man walked into a Little Caesars pizza restaurant and pretended to pour gas on himself in a suicide prank video that apparently went bad when another man in the business pulled a gun on him.
In the prank that took place in July, the shirtless man walked into the pizza restaurant and raised his voice while he talked to the workers behind a counter.
The shirtless man was carrying a plastic gas container and tried to get into the back work area but the door was locked. So the man walked up to the counter and said, “Alright” several times before he shook the open gas container over his head as what appeared to be gas covered him.
While the shirtless man shook the gas can over his head, another man approached from behind with a gun pointed at the shirtless man. At that point, customers in the store fled in panic.
The man posted another prank video of a man who entered a Target store and pulled the same suicide prank of pouring liquid on himself out of a plastic gas container.
The two videos were posted on a Detroit \comedian’s Facebook page. That comedian, Eastside Ivo, has 1.18 million followers on Facebook.
He later posted July 25 on his Facebook account, “To everyone who is offended by me posting these videos. I apologize! Pranks like this is done all the time never meant to scare anyone. Some find it entertaining some find it disgusting so to each its on. I'll watch what I post from now on. I guess maybe y'all should react from positivity instead of negativity more. Cause I been doing videos for 4 years, community work, non profit events, and never had news attention.”
