Dad Plays Cruel 'Candy' Prank on Son & No One Is Laughing But Him (VIDEO)

Rant 69

boyWe've seen a lot of funny pranks parents play on their kids thanks to YouTube sending them viral. Usually, we all get a good laugh and applaud the parents for not taking things too seriously. But there's a line between having some fun with your kid and laughing with them and being horrifically cruel and laughing at them. The dad in this following video crosses the line into the latter BIG time.

In the video, which has just recently gone viral, the Brazilian father gives his son what's supposed to be a candy egg (a Kinder Surprise Egg). Only instead, he's replaced the candy one with a real, raw egg. The boy repeatedly tries to bite into it as his father encourages him to keep going, filming all the while. When he finally does crack it with his teeth, the egg spills out all over him, and the boy is left with egg literally on his face. He's in tears while all the adults in the room laugh hysterically.

It's such a mean thing to do, not to mention the risk of Salmonella poisoning from having raw eggs in his mouth. But that poor boy was humiliated. He's way too young to be subjected to that kind of treatment, and what kind of dad thinks that's funny? It was cruel, plain and simple, and it makes me furious that this boy was treated this way.

To make it even worse, the dad gives everyone in the room some "air time" at the end of the video. He pans the faces, because he knew this shit would probably go viral ... and he was right. But just because it goes viral doesn't mean it's funny or right, and this dad should be ashamed that he used him like this for his own personal amusement. His son maybe laughing at the end, but that doesn't mean he's not still crying inside.

Watch for yourself and see if you disagree.

Do you think this 'prank' is funny at all?

It's cruel, it's mean and it breaks my heart. I feel so sorry for that little boy.

Not at all. It's disgusting.

I can't watch.  Just the description alone makes me sick.  That poor boy.  :(

Your so over dramatic. That little boy was just fine and by the looks of it he laughed it off in the end as well. I bet the reason he cried was because the actual yolk and egg white startled him a bit not because he dad was laughing at him. Everyone on this site is so quick to judge.

I guess it depends on what you are used to. My ex and his family were a bunch of cruel kidders and if you were too sensitive about their remarks or pranks then they said you couldn't take a joke. Thankfully my hubby is not like them. :) Hopefully, the little boy grows up to know the difference between playful teasing and hurtful pranking.

Overdramatic?? Laughing because you made your kid CRY is never ok. They warn you against raw eggs for a reason how do you know he was "fine" in the end?

Take a pill and chill people. That was funny. This is why all of your children are going to grow up to be entitled little brats. You baby and coddle them to the point of no return and they're going to grow up feeling like they're owed the world and unable to take a joke because you sheltered them from anything that MIGHT hurt their feelings or make them cry. I'm sure this kid is going to grow up to be much better off than any of yours.

And seriously, I highly doubt he got enough of that egg in his mouth to get salmonella.

Funny enough, it just made me sad when nobody comforted the crying boy. They just laughed. :(

That was definitely enough egg to be poisoned with salmonella. Obviously you've never taken microbiology. Embarrassing your child and laughing at it doesn't show any human decency. Really? Your own child? Maybe if he was like 16 but not that age. Some people should have to take a licensing exam before having children.
