Hiding in my hoodie

The Greatest And Most Terrifying Prank Ever (Plus More Than Enough Links For Your Weekend)

I am both sad and proud that I had nothing to do with the making of this video. You don’t need to speak Spanish to appreciate the horror and hilarity that you are about to witness mostly because I was informed later it is in Portuguese. I apologize for not double-checking before hitting publish.

If I had been on that elevator, I would’ve either gone for the exorcism right then and there or peed my pants and cried:

Hiding in my hoodie
My holy hoodie will protect me. My holy hoodie will protect me. My holy hoodie will protect me. My holy hoodie will protect me. My holy hoodie will protect me.

When I’m not laughing at other people’s terror while thanking God the prank wasn’t pulled on me, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.


My Other Hangouts (don’t tell my blog):

  • Gift Ideas for Kids Ages 3 to 7 (and a few to avoid): On This Blogger Makes Fun Of Stuff, the best gifts for boys or girls from 3 to 7 some of which we are planning to get, some of which we already own, and a few no one should buy.
  • Skittlegate: Should Food Be In The Classroom Without Parents Knowing?: On Richmondmom, where do you stand on food in our classrooms? Should candy be a reward? What happens when a child has a food allergy? What makes a classroom birthday party fun? Why are we even talking about this? I interviewed Tiffany Glass Ferreira, a Richmond mom who started skittlegate, and I also had a little fun.
  • A Christmas Card For The End Of The World: This is actually from this blog BUT with a twist because if my love of the creepy video doesn’t give you a glimpse into the possibility of my holiday cards, I blogged about Peace, Love, and Zoolander and Zombie Xmas and have a link at the bottom of my christmas card post if you want a Late Enough holiday card delivered to your doorstep this year.

Favorite posts I didn’t read, I mean, write:

  • An Ode To Yo Momma: From Wit and Pendulum, yo momma jokes for Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter fans. (nerdy, not for sensitive souls)
  • Swedish toymaker publishes ‘gender-neutral’ children’s Christmas catalogue: From Daily Mail, I like when gender norms are messed with particularly when it’s not just girls doing boy things but children doing children activities particularly the last picture with 2 kids playing. I also think adding a gender neutral pronoun (not getting rid of the other pronouns though) would be great. (interesting)
  • Dumb Ways To Die: From DumbWays2Die on youtube, Australia has an adorable and morbid cartoon train safety video. If you don’t think those things go together, watch the video. Seriously. (strange and wonderful and the song will get stuck in your head but that’s not a terrible thing)

By the way, in my weekly newsletter (which is similar to this but also summarizes my blog posts of the week for those slackers who can’t make it to Late Enough every day or don’t sign up for individual posts to be emailed to them), I do a quote of the week so I thought I might just throw it at the bottom of these posts randomly now. They are sometimes serious like last newsletter: “You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don’t trust enough. -Frank Crane” and sometimes not, like this week:

Quote of the Week: “Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice.” -Dave Barry

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. My husband showed this to me the other day. He asked if he could be tried for murder if he were in that elevator and tried to kill the demon girl for his own protection. We weren’t sure if the law would be on our side or not. But decided if in that situation, we might not care!

  2. I laughed so much but also was glad that the girl didn’t get hurt by a terrified prankee. And Dumb Ways To Die has been played many times in my house. So funny.

  3. Oh my gosh, that is horrifying. I say that because I was laughing at the reactions so hard and if I SAY it was horrifying, karma won’t turn around and put me in a situation that scary. I would have been the one freaking out in there.

  4. I would have peed my pants. I watched this through your awesome newsletter. I seriously would have peed my pants…or had a heart attack!

    That Swedish toy catalog looks really cool. I hope that starts happening here. I would also like to see doll houses (and dolls in general) be in colors other than pink.

  5. Oh eff that! I can’t handle that creepy paranormal stuff. I would be SO MAD when I got off that elevator and learned it was a prank. Even though I knew it wasn’t real, my heart was in my throat watching it and I jumped every time that girl screamed.

  6. They are speaking Portuguese, not Spanish. 🙂

    And I can’t get enough of this video. Is it evil that I am in tears from laughter?

        1. No way — you were great to do it. I love when freaders help me out like that. The only time it’s not welcomed is when people call me names along with it.

          I feel terrible about getting the language wrong although Google translator got it wrong too so I don’t feel totally dumb.
