A viral video of a Brazilian father pranking his son has been causing quite a bit of controversy since hitting the web.
In the video uploaded to YouTube a father gives his son what he tells him is a Kinder Surprise Egg (a candy egg). When the boy tries to bite it open he finds it harder than usual. At his father’s insistence, the boy tries again and the egg breaks.
Immediately, the boy realizes the egg his father had given him was not candy, but rather a real, uncooked egg.
The father and others in the room laugh as the boy cries.
Since going viral, many have claimed the prank was dangerous and not a joke, but rather bullying by the boy’s own family. Others defend the video saying it was just a joke and the boy appeared to be fine.
So what do you think? Was the father’s prank horribly cruel, or was it just a harmless joke?
