It seems like a long time since this happened, but it’s only been about three years since the first installment of the Five Nights at Freddy’s horror video game series came out. This intense game full of jump scares that you never saw coming made people shriek all over the internet and turned it into a beloved horror game icon.
While Five Nights at Freddy’s isn’t as popular nowadays as it once was, the game’s robot animal characters are still great at scaring unexpected people. Especially if perfectly used as a nostalgic prank tool on drive-thru staffers.
YouTube prank sensation Magic of Rahat decided to resurrect the robots in a prank video where he got many employees at several establishments to scream out of fear. By using a hidden car seat, controlling the robot, and using an iPhone to portray the horrid screech the animatronics emit in the games, Rahat created a pretty life-like creation of the Freddy’s robots that we do NOT want to be on the opposite end of.
Now, not everybody was fooled or scared by Rahat’s antics, and some of the most badass responses to his jump scare attempts can be seen in the bonus video above. While their reactions weren’t what we were hoping for, they were still pretty funny.
Hopefully I can watch this a few times, get some great laughs out of it, and not get nightmares of the robots when I go to sleep tonight.
