Worst bachelor party ever?
A British groom-to-be was "kidnapped" by his friends in a terrifying bachelor party prank that left him so traumatized he developed shingles, The Sun reported Saturday.
Ollie McAninch and his fiancee Clair Hart were driving in England when 16 masked men ambushed the car with baseball bats and smoke grenades. While Hart screamed (she was in on the prank), the gang dressed McAninch in a jumpsuit, tied him up and put him in the back of a van.
They silently drove more than 100 miles before revealing themselves to McAninch, but the prank wasn't over yet. The group then forced McAninch to put on a "Borat"-style "mankini" and bike 10 miles to the actual bachelor party (which McAninch thought was the following week).
Afterwards, McAninch developed shingles, a painful rash caused by the same virus as chicken pox that can be activated by stress. However, he said he has forgiven Hart and his friends.
“I’ve logged it for future vengeance," McAninch said.
A similar stunt was pulled in Maryland last year, which led a witness who thought the kidnapping was real to call the police.
