Chainsaw Massacre Prank Takes Halloween Horror to Insane New Heights (VIDEO)

chainsaw massacre prankThis is so disturbing. And scary. And bloody. And hilarious. And ingenious. And just in time for Halloween. The folks behind VitalyzdTv came up with an insane chainsaw massacre prank, freaking out the bejesus of innocent passersby in a parking garage. Like it's been mentioned, it's a little strange for a chainsaw-wielding freak to set up his lair in a parking garage, but there's something inherently frightening about them, wouldn't you say?

At this time, the video has over 23 million views. SO crazy. But so worth it because you'll be thanking your lucky stars you weren't a victim of this "prank" -- you'd have to see a therapist for the rest of your life.


Just a heads up that this is pretty graphic, even if you already know it's fake. But, you know, no need to unnecessarily freak out your coworkers or your tiny tots. Check it out:

ZOMFG, right? I don't even know what on Earth I'd do if the doors to an elevator popped open and I saw that bloody, gruesome mess. I'm surprised people didn't pass out. And I don't blame anyone for screaming and running instead of trying to help the poor cut up "victim." I'd get the hell out of there as fast as possible.

Okay, okay, to assuage your nightmares, here's a behind-the-scenes look at how this was all put together:

Always seems a lot more fun when you're the masterminds behind the prank, isn't it?

The star of the video is Nick Santonastasso, who was born with Hanhart syndrome. According to, this is "a rare birth defect that left him with no legs, an undeveloped right arm, and a left arm with one finger." But that didn't stop Nick, who's now 17 years old. In high school in New Jersey, he was a wrestler, singer, musician, and king of YouTube pranks. He even freaked out famous Walking Dead star Norman Reedus.

Pretty great stuff, and Nick seems like an incredible guy. Hopefully the video is far less scary now because he is such an inspiration. But still, even if you had no idea of the background of the video and how they put it all together, this is a pretty amazing prank.

Kudos to everyone involved for their sick, sick, twisted minds. Nothing like a terrifying video to really get you in the mood to scare some people.

Is this the best Halloween prank you've seen yet?
