A good prank will reveal how gullible people are, but a great prank will make you question the state of humanity.

In this latest prank video from Official Comedy, a man asks strangers in a park to "cover" for him about losing his job before his "wife" walks over to ask what's going on. As it turns out, more than enough people men were willing to lie about working with this dude so that his wife wouldn't get mad.

Unfortunately for him, neither the man's "wife" (or anyone else) has ever heard of "casual Tuesdays." Busted.
