Drive Through Headless Prank – A Little Friday Funny

YouTube Preview Image

I know that I claimed this week in the wake of April Fool’s Day  that I do not like pranks, and in general I don’t. I feel too much sympathy for the people who are the butt of the joke. I typically like prank videos even less than the live version. But this one is priceless. The reason it’s so good, of course, is because the people reacting are all game. They all seem to be having a great time together working and the prank just gave them something else to enjoy on a boring night at the drive through. Cheers to the folks who are getting it done late night, having a great attitude, and enjoying life! My favorite reactions are:

0:58 – “Good job… that’s awesome.”

1:25 – “Hey, you terrible as you wanna be.”

1:39 – Big dude jumps back. Headless boy is lucky he didn’t get punched right there.

2:32 – Kathy screams… classic.

Have a great Friday everyone!

    My sentiments exactly! :) Apropos of “having no head,” everyone (IMO) should have a look for themselves! As Douglas Harding writes of his own experience of “seeing”:

    “To look was enough. And what I found was khaki trouserlegs terminating downwards in a pair of brown shoes, khaki sleeves terminating sideways in a pair of pink hands, and a khaki shirtfront terminating upwards in—absolutely nothing whatever! Certainly not in a head.

    “It took me no time at all to notice that this nothing, this hole where a head should have been was no ordinary vacancy, no mere nothing. On the contrary, it was very much occupied. It was a vast emptiness vastly filled, a nothing that found room for everything—room for grass, trees, shadowy distant hills, and far above them snowpeaks like a row of angular clouds riding the blue sky. I had lost a head and gained a world.

    “It was all, quite literally, breathtaking. I seemed to stop breathing altogether, absorbed in the Given. Here it was, this superb scene, brightly shining in the clear air, alone and unsupported, mysteriously suspended in the void, and (and this was the real miracle, the wonder and delight) utterly free of “me”, unstained by any observer. Its total presence was my total absence, body and soul. Lighter than air, clearer than glass, altogether released from myself, I was nowhere around.

    “Yet in spite of the magical and uncanny quality of this vision, it was no dream, no esoteric revelation. Quite the reverse: it felt like a sudden waking from the sleep of ordinary life, an end to dreaming. It was self-luminous reality for once swept clean of all obscuring mind. It was the revelation, at long last, of the perfectly obvious. It was a lucid moment in a confused life-history. It was a ceasing to ignore something which (since early childhood at any rate) I had always been too busy or too clever to see. It was naked, uncritical attention to what had all along been staring me in the face – my utter facelessness. In short, it was all perfectly simple and plain and straightforward, beyond argument, thought, and words. There arose no questions, no reference beyond the experience itself, but only peace and a quiet joy, and the sensation of having dropped an intolerable burden.” ~ On Having No Head [www.headless.org]

    Indeed, when we see that we have no head, we can truly understand what it means to say that Christ– the light of the world — is our head. In his light we see light! As the “headless way” folks say, there is no need to rely on imagination, memory or assumption: “Look for yourself – you alone can see Who you really are, no one else can do it for you.”
