I thought of a mean prank:

Make a movie called "Cemetery of the Dead." Film a cemetery for 1 1/2 hours with a stationary camera, and add a spooky soundtrack. The film should be in black and white. Other than maybe trees rustling or birds flying through, nothing happens for the entire 1 1/2 hours since they're dead. At the end of the movie fade to black and roll the credits, which are the names of the people on all the tombstones.

I wonder how long someone would watch until they realize nothing is ever gonna happen since it's a cemetery of the dead.

Here's an example title card with spooky letters.

Here's one with more traditional 60s style letters.

Now that I've given away my prank idea I won't be able to trick the 4 people who read my blog.


  1. just make the movie and then release it under a slightly different title- we'll never see it coming!...

  2. hahahah! easier yet, you could film for one minute then just loop it. maybe right at the very end have some ghoul pop out from behind a headstone and scream.
    the rolling credit idea is perfect!

  3. Haha! Thanks guys for the comments and ideas.

    I wonder if a ghoul at the end would almost be a payoff for the time they spent watching it all the way through. I want there to be absolutely no redeeming value for all their efforts.

  4. You can put it on YouTube and share it with the world! Yayy!!!

    BTW, here is a link to a video I put up on YT of David W. Johnson's show. Nah, it's not the show where he filmed the glass of water, but he does spend the half hour yelling at the people watching to stop watching him:
