This video proves that while it’s funny to watch a mum being scared by a fake dog, it’s even funnier when she falls for the same prank again, and again, and again.
In the clip, YouTube user Jomboy, real name Jimmy O’Brien, is seen scaring his mother by leaving a stuffed Alsatian in a variety of locations around the family home.
The toy, which O’Brien originally purchased as a birthday present for his younger brother, is seen initially lurking by the front door, before waiting sinisterly outside the toilet, only a minute later.
Although the mother appeared to be desensitised by the end of the video, one YouTube commenter suggested that the prank could be taken to a new level.
‘Mom absolutely needs to wake up in the morning and find the dog lying in bed with her — as dogs so often like to do.’
Speaking to Today.Com, Jimmy O’Brien admitted that he had a reputation for attempting to wind up his mother.
He said: ‘I grew up always trying to prank or scare her. When I was 10, she was pregnant and told me I had to stop, otherwise I may never get the little brother that was on the way.’
