A dastardly and funny prank out of Brazil appears to have worked a little too well recently after a driver fell hook, line and sinker for it. The Loony Tunes-style stunt had a practical joker painted a cartoon-like tunnel scene on a bridge in much the same way that Wile E. Coyote used to in the old animations where he was trying to catch the Roadrunner.
And wouldn’t you know it? Some inattentive driver in the Brazilian town the scene was painted bought into it and drove STRAIGHT INTO THE WALL. There were no injuries, but the person’s red Fiat hatchback is pretty badly damaged.
In the cartoons, the fast-moving bird would always outsmart the coyote and end up turning the prank back on him. But in this real-life version, the painter of the scene had the last laugh…
You’ve gotta think that the driver’s gonna be pretty embarrassed after this little incident!
