2 Disappearing Fugitive Prank


1 mei 2011
Prank victims are flipping through magazines and hanging out in a waiting room when a sketchy looking character walks up. He looks over his shoulder as if he is be followed, and then spots a trench coat hanging on the wall. He decides to go under the coat to hide, but promptly disappears beneath it, feet and all! Then, a police officer arrives on the scene and asks the witnesses if they’d seen the man in the picture he is carrying. Sure enough, the photo is of the very man who just went into hiding. They point to the coat where the fugitive went to hide, but right at that moment, an old man emerges from the rest room, and takes his trench coat off the wall – revealing there to be nothing – and nobody – underneath it. Prank victims scratch their head in confusion over the magic, disappearing act they just witnessed.
