Epic Prank On Drunk Friend Drives Risk Home (VIDEO)

When YouTubers Tom Mabe and Jim Clark were faced with a drunk friend who had already wracked up five DUIs, they came up with an ingenious prank to set him straight and waited for the opportunity they knew was sure to come.

"Call the guys," Clark says to Mabe in the video after learning that the friend was passed out in his truck, as expected. "It's go time."

The video strikes a careful balance between the importance of its message and the epic prank that makes that message possible. Although the fully-equipped faux hospital room and the satirical news report don't make this the most typical intervention, we're hopeful that Mabe and Clark's creative thinking did have some lasting impact.
