VIDEO | Prank goes horribly wrong and ends with a nasty head kick KO

When pulling off a prank in the public for the sake of entertainment, there is always the risk of the shenanigan backfiring.

Here, we take a look at this video prank gone wrong as an obviously skilled martial artist happened to be near the incident.

The prankster in glasses goes up to a random stranger in public and appears to throw some sort of net over the man. As he runs off as a part of the prank, he is greeted by a turn back kick to the face and is knocked out stiff. The man who kicked him likely thought the prankster was a robber or criminal and stopped him cold in his tracks.

As the hidden camera staff comes out to explain the situation, the man who had the net thrown on him was still upset of the situation while the knockout artist looks to simply go about his day as if it was no big deal.
