Fire Department Spends An Hour Rescuing Youtube 'Prankster' Who Cemented His Head In A Microwave

December 8, 2017


Because even Darwin sleeps on the job sometimes, a 22-year old Youtube 'prankster' had to be rescued by local fire services in Wolverhampton, England after cementing his head in a microwave. Wait -- how is almost suffocating a prank? If you die, aren't you only pranking yourself?

Friends had managed to feed an air tube into the 22-year-old's mouth to help him breathe, the service said.

Watch Commander Shaun Dakin said the man "could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured".

Mr Dakin said: "He and a group of friends had mixed seven bags of Polyfilla which they then poured around his head, which was protected by a plastic bag inside the microwave.
"The oven was being used as a mould and wasn't plugged in. The mixture quickly set hard and, by the time we were called, they'd already been trying to free him for an hour and a half."

"All of the group involved were very apologetic, but this was clearly a call-out which might have prevented us from helping someone else in genuine, accidental need."

You can watch the video below, but I don't really encourage it. It's just eleven minutes of Jonny Numbnuts freaking out with a microwave stuck to his head. Personally, I would have preferred to see the fire department plug the microwave in and hit the popcorn button to let nature run its course, but that's just me and the gazelle with the microwave on its head is always the first to get eaten by lions anyways.

Keep going for the video while I write Youtube demanding this guy be banned from ever uploading or monetizing another video.

Thanks to Twumpybum and Joel, who agree if this guy prevented another emergency call from getting answered, he should have to answer to their family. Then be tossed in a volcano.

    if you die you're pranking all those people you've tricked into getting attached.

    this is why some cultures didn't name people until their 30th birthday in case they don't live

    I hope concrete guy drops all connections to those guys. I know I'd be screaming since I'm minorly claustrophobic.

  • Dominic

    what a waste of emergency services.

    Is there a script for Chrome that will automatically replace the term "YouTube Prankster" with "Attention Whore"?

    For their next stunt, they're going to jump off a tall building onto a pool filled with razor blades and sharks and lemon juice...and then be surprised when things go wrong...

    No 20-pound sledgehammer to bash it free? Jaws of life? Power saws? Acetylene torches, or lightsabers? Farm tractors with chains to pull them apart?

    Most of the time, the work that emergency responders do helps the human race.

    Sometimes their efforts actually harm it.

    This dude should have been allowed to leave the gene pool.

  • Give him time - I'm sure he will.

  • Titty McNipplefondler

    They could have brought a cork for the end of the tube.

  • Nicholas Conrad

    I remember simpler times when you only stuck your head in a microwave to get yourself a tan.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I just watched these fuckheads cement themselves into a bathtub... I'm legit surprised they hadn't learned anything from that experience.

    Also, what kind of genius decided that not building a 2-piece mold was the way to do this? And also it wouldn't have been that hard to build a regular mold that sat on his shoulders so he could just sit upright in a chair or something.

  • Titty McNipplefondler

    @atheistgirl is this version of a british accent demonstrated by this video the classy version?

  • Bling Nye

    We came so close to being able to add 'cementing your head in a microwave' to the list...

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    this is really stupid. also, the thought of having your head encased in cement with only an air tube is terrifying. i'd have a panic attack. makes me nervous just thinking about.

    >When you deserve to be left on your own to perish but unfortunately there are laws preventing the people from letting you.

  • Draco Basileus

    Sometimes emergency responders should be allowed to use personal discretion regarding which lives are worth saving. This was not one of them.

  • Jenness

    I wonder how much this costs and if they have to pay?
