A Belgian TikToker Faked His Own Death To Teach His Family And Friends About The Importance Of Keeping In Touch
It sucks when you feel ignored by your friends and family. Why won’t they respond to your texts? Check in with you during tough times? Invite you to their parties? For 45-year-old Belgian TikToker David Baerten, enough was enough. How daaare his so-called “loved ones” avoid him?! It was time to teach everyone a lesson via an elaborate prank where he fakes his death (with the help of his wife and kids) and then helicopters into his own funeral. “Surprise, I’m alive!” Errr, “Surpendre! Je suis en vie!”
If you were a youngster back in the late 90s and early aughts, none of the numerous manufactured boy bands had more of an impact on some of our clothing habits (Abercrombie & Fitch) and an acquired distaste for cultural cuisine (Chinese food) than LFO. Their 1999 smash “Summer Girls” was so huge that the band members should all be living their best middle-aged lives lounging around their tackily adorned McMansion pools in popped-collar polo shirts, still reeking of Abercrombie Fierce cologne. But in a sad turn of events, Brad Fischetti is the sole surviving member of LFO, with Rich Cronin, Devin Lima, and Brian “Brizz” Gillis all passing away over the last decade or so. Though many wonder if the band might be cursed, Brad says he can’t let that consume him, and he thinks his bandmates would want him to continue telling their story and sharing their music.
Those no-good TikTok kids are at it again! This holiday season, people are pranking their parents by telling them that their favorite celebrities are dead. The script usually goes as follows — Child, looking at phone: “OMG. Mom!! Bon Jovi reported dead at 60!” Mom: “WHAAAAAAAAAA?!?! NOOOOO!!! I have nothing left to live for!!!!” Child: *snickers* Mom: “Are you joking? I’ll kill you!” The odd time, a particularly clever prankster will throw in a cause of death (lots of car crashes and heart attacks). While these videos are controversial, Newsweek reports that the hashtag #celebritydeathprank has almost 89 billion views on TikTok. Continue reading
It’s been three weeks since THE QUEEN passed away at age 96, and the cause of death is finally in: she ODed on tea and crumpets! Just joshin’, Lizzie actually passed away due to “old age,” same as her husband Prince Philip. People reports that the National Records of Scotland published this extremely shocking info in a document released today. Official time of death? 3:10 pm. So, if you popped a baby outta your cooch on September 8 at 3:11 PM (Greenwich Mean Time), congratulations! There’s a very good chance you’ll be raising a reincarnated royal.
When someone passes, we tend to wipe clean most of their sins and infractions. Yeah, they didn’t pay you back that $100 but they’re dead and you’re not, so it’s a wash. But for the particularly vengeful, death is not enough. Sometimes you gotta drag the deceased! Florida man (insert shocked Pikachu face) Lawrence Pfaff Jr. thought the concept of “rest in peace” was too good for his dad and crafted an obit fit for the devil!
The Family Of Deceased Rapper Goonew Defended Their Decision To Prop Up His Corpse On Stage At A D.C. Nightclub
Rapper Goonew was shot and killed almost three weeks ago in District Heights, Maryland, just a few blocks from where he was raised. He was only 24, and his murder remains unsolved. Goonew’s family held his funeral this past Sunday, and it wasn’t your typical send-off. With the help of the funeral home, they propped up Goonew’s embalmed corpse on stage at Bliss Nightclub in Washington D.C. The deceased rapper, whose real name was Markelle Morrow, was dressed in sneakers, jeans, an Amiri hoodie, and a crown. They called the service, “The Last Show.” Mourners paid a $40 cover charge for the privilege to party in the presence of Goonew’s body. The rapper’s mom, Patrice Morrow, told TMZ that her son was the life of the party, and, “that’s why I sent him home that way. Having a party.”
