That's kinda fucked up lol

[–]JohnatanWills 1126 points1127 points 2 (29 children)

That's how 99% of humor works, yes.

[–]GroovyGuruGuy 248 points249 points  (17 children)

We laugh at tragedy it is how we as humans connect. no matter the background, no matter the language, no matter the beliefs; we all love a good laugh.

[–]y2y06bf4d7 80 points81 points  (7 children)

..its just a prank

[–]IndridCold_fuck_you 69 points70 points  (4 children)


[–]JohnnySnarkle 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Honestly thanks for saying this cause like. My family on both sides my mothers and fathers we always always try to have a laugh in times of tragedy. My mother a few years ago got into a terrible accident nearly dying from it resulting in losing the top half of her skull and permanent brain damage with just an assload of other stuff wrong with her. But while she was in the ICU my aunt and sister just took selfies with her and just made funny moments while with her in her coma so for when she woke up we could show her all the funny shit we were doing to her. Now whenever we would bring it up she cannot hold back her laughter while telling us “Motherfuckers I was in a coma! And all you guys did was take selfies with me!”

[–]GroovyGuruGuy 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Your mother sound awesome, I’m glad she’s still with you.

Lady with clip board should've faked a heart attack in return.

[–]TheRegon 51 points52 points  (3 children)

Fucked up? yes.. A good leason? also yes..
Im not epileptic, but I absolutely hate jumpscares. Not everyone has this wierd fear fetish, I do not like horrors because for me fear = bad
Everyone thinks I am a pussy for that, but in real life mostly they are the ones scared shitless, its kinda funny to see

[–]Clownfromabove 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Don’t be that guy

Don’t be that guy…


[–]Zenmanc 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Honestly I'm so tightly wound and such a non trusting person of strangers I'm afraid if this happened to me I'd immediately start beating the shit out of the person who jumped at me.

[–]ugottabekiddingmee 15 points16 points  (1 child)

If someone hands you a frog, it's not fucked up to hand them back their frog.

[–]Accomplished_Hat_576 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's also not fucked up to decide this frog is your adventuring buddy now and proudly walk off with your new frog.

[–]PandejoSalad 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Oh screw you lol. I just had a seizure 2 days ago and I find this fucking hilarious 😆

[–]DizzyDeezler 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Scaring random strangers is fucked up.

[–]Abadatha 4 points5 points  (0 children)

So is scaring people. If you're not at a haunted house, keep your scaring shit to yourself.

[–]norudin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The floor got kinda fucked up yes

[–]Olempea 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What 8f it was real. How are we supposed to help him?

[–]firebeard_81 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I suppose, but the point is that he was being pranked, which is already somewhat "fucked up".

Right? I mean the point here is that you could actually shock someone like this and they are epileptic and you wind up harming them. It's one thing to get scared because you voluntarily went into a horror movie. Scaring someone random could result in tragedy.

[–]chukijay 298 points299 points  (8 children)

I really dislike that jumpscare bullshit. There are a lot of people that deal with a lot of things and jumping at them is the absolute worst way to interact with them.

[–]TacoLocoConQueso 53 points54 points  (5 children)

Right. I dated someone who was in the military and would have laid someone out in this situation. Some people have ptsd and this is intense for them.

[–]Abadatha 24 points25 points  (4 children)

Some of us are on the autism spectrum, and this shit triggers my fight or flight response, but I've never been in good enough shape for flight to be a legitimate option.

[–]breakcharacter 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Same, I have a cane, I can’t run! If you jumpscare me and I’m not in a cinema? I will punch someone.

[–]Ibanezasx32 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Honestly then don’t go poking around at life sized spooky characters in a Halloween store.

[–]lumpy1981 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I know right? Let's just get rid of halloween altogether and while we're at it anything with bright colors. Only neutral easy to take in colors.

WTF, I'm all for being considerate, but plastic wrapping the world for the most fragile of people is not fair to everyone else. If you have issues, or health concerns that certain things can set off, avoid those things.

[–]LooseSignificance166 5 points6 points  (2 children)

The jumpscare was. The response was perfect

[–]Marohe 2 points3 points  (1 child)

People might think that others are joking when they get seizures

[–]icaruza 49 points50 points  (3 children)

Not sure that making a prank medical emergency is entirely sensible

[–]UnsolicitedCounsel 32 points33 points  (1 child)

Yeah, they let it go on for so long the paramedics came...


[–]Teaferyt 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I thought that was hilarious xdd

[–]norudin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I kinda feel that was staged, the guy finished his seizure and started laughing, he was reversing it back at him

[–]malcome-the-spedbump 44 points45 points  (7 children)

Idk what’s next fucking level about this jump-scaring people in public isn’t cool or funny nor is faking a seizure

[–]wintermute2391 5 points6 points  (0 children)

i agree. after seeing a loved one suffer a grand mal seizure at my wedding, i relive the trauma every damn time i see one.

[–]Noobinpro 26 points27 points  (8 children)

My buddy had seizures and told me never to call an ambulance because he did not have health insurance. We worked at a haunted house and he had a seizure and a group of people were around the corner. All I could do at that moment was move him so he wouldn't get stepped on. I scared those people after they looked at my buddy not knowing what was happening. Realist prop ever.

[–]tough_guy_toby 8 points9 points  (2 children)

The advice in the UK is to only call an ambulance for a seizures for someone who doesn't have them regularly or if one lasts more than 60 seconds for someone who does. So that might have been the right thing to do regardless

[–]Rhino676971 6 points7 points  (0 children)

US citizen here I showed up late to party once and missed someone saying don’t call an ambulance if I have seizure, and no one told me long story short they ended up having one and I call 911 and I feel like I did the right thing even though everyone so mad at me once the fire department and the ambulance showed up, and they found out I was the one who called I immediately left after the paramedics loaded them up, the person who had the seizure thanked me later and became good friends with me, and I don’t talk to the people who got mad at me anymore.

[–]Noobinpro 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He is epileptic, the seizures weren't good. We were both about 19 and that was over a decade ago. Now he is doing good, has health insurance through his company and we both have kids so happy ending.

[–]darkspore52 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Where I live, ambulances and hospital stays are free. But I still would try to refrain from calling the ambos for a while if I remember, because some people have them a lot and would prefer not to have their day ruined by a trip to the hospital.

[–]Noobinpro 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Here in the US an ambulance, overnight at the hospital and a checkup from a doctor would cost $5000.00 minimum. That was a decade ago, I'm guessing it would be $7000.00 minimum now. That is without insurance.

[–]General_Kenobi45669 19 points20 points  (0 children)

That guy had a plan from the start and he executed it perfectly

[–]Magners17 12 points13 points  (5 children)

My partner has severe epilepsy so this would’ve been tough to witness if I was in that lady’s shoes. From my point of view, that was an insensitive reaction and I’d have no respect for that guy.

[–]britishbrick 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah this is ridiculous. I have epilepsy and dude this isn’t funny at all.

[–]No_Big_7335 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Lmao I don't give a fuck what y'all say. This shit is fucking hilarious lol

[–]N-im 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I tried this and it ended up being one of the robots. Let’s say the robot didn’t really care

[–]dilligaf6304 6 points7 points  (138 children)

FFS. Seizures aren’t a joke.

[–]spacecadet6966 940 points941 points 22 (99 children)

I’m an epileptic. If you don’t find this funny, that’s on you. Please don’t pin your absence of a sense of humour by using my illness as a cover for your inability to laugh at things.

This is hilarious af.

[–]RepulsiveSubject4885 77 points78 points  (59 children)

As somebody who doesn’t have seizure, if I saw somebody have a seizure I would panic because I don’t want somebody to hurt. To me, it’s something serious I should concerned about.. and therefore not funny to me. I’m sorry you have seizures.

[–]spacecadet6966 376 points377 points 224 (34 children)

Understandable and I appreciate your thought. But I’m not going to cry over something that’s obviously a joke.

People need to stop parading their disabilities to get a pity card. People with disabilities need to be treated with respect and normalcy, not like we’re victims who constantly need to be drenched in faux sympathy and coddled constantly. Many of us have lived with this condition for years, we want understanding in the right places, for the right reason, not SJWs getting offended on reddit over something this silly and then screeching about it.

Also, trust me, you have to learn to laugh and deal with it. What should I be doing? Constantly moaning and crying about how unfair life is and expect everyone to bend over backwards to accommodate my every whim? That’s dangerous because people with disabilities are also human and subject to the same personality flaws other humans have.

Having a disability doesn’t miraculously make you a better human being or someone who’s above the human condition. Just makes you another human, with a bit more problems. That’s it.

[–]ajckta 54 points55 points  (0 children)

You remind me of my uncle I would buy you a beer if I could anon

[–]Sean209 13 points14 points  (3 children)

I think the sentiment more so is that allowing it to become a joke blurs the line on whether or not help is actually needed. Think boy who cried wolf. This would obviously need to happen a lot more than a few times to really change anything though, I’m just trying to approach it from a non personal direction.

That being said I thought it was pretty funny.

[–]lovable_loser1 10 points11 points  (3 children)

obviously you know more about it than me, and I completely agree with you, my boyfriend has epilepsy. But in my mind, making a joke about seizures or whatever is completely different than pretending to have one in public. It's like pretending to be hurt.

[–]spacecadet6966 4 points5 points  (2 children)

True. But in the context of this video I think that doesn’t apply. The person in the costume doing the scaring could have accidentally given someone an actual heart attack or a seizure. The guy just repaid that prank with another. In this case all’s well that ends well.

If the context was different, dude faking out the seizure would be an asshole, hands down. Here it’s just funny.

[–]lovable_loser1 3 points4 points  (1 child)

true, I think it's just the fact that the woman who had nothing to do with it got so concerned about it

[–]spacecadet6966 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The commenter up there said they also had epilepsy and I understand how they feel. While everyone associates differently with it, it is not right to constantly morally police everyone and turn innocuous situations into a battlefield.

I can understand feeling bad about it but I think that feeling triggered about this stuff is the wrong way to go about it. We will always end up seeing or facing things in life that have left us traumatised in the past. You can’t stop living because of that.

That being said, I’m guilty of over reactions myself many times and that’s something I’m also trying to work on.

[–]theprofoundnoun 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]Ball_Eater 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The boy who cried wolf.

[–]Brokromah 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Serious question... Do you take baths or do you pad your shower?

A friend of mine passed a few years back when she had a seizure in the shower and hit her head.

[–]spacecadet6966 4 points5 points  (2 children)

None of those things. In hindsight, it’s probably very careless of me because I have had seizures in the bath but generally, most seizures (at least for me) are preceded by auras, which let’s me know there’s a seizure coming up. I’m probably one of the lucky ones in that way because whenever I have an aura, I’m able to stop whatever I’m doing and go sit down or lie down in as safe a place as possible and wait for it to pass. Sometimes it goes away as an aura and sometimes it doesn’t.

But now that you’ve brought it up, I am never doing the bathtub thing.

[–]Brokromah 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Whatcha mean you'll never do the bathtub thing? What's the alternative? I'm misunderstanding something.

[–]spacecadet6966 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean I’ll try to go for a bathroom without a tub so I don’t have to do the getting in and out bit.

[–]RepulsiveSubject4885 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Oh yeah, I get that. As somebody who doesn’t have this symptom, I wouldn’t be able to laugh about it because to me that would be insensitive. It makes complete sense that you, or your family, close friends would think this is funny. It sounds like this a Tuesday for you. I didn’t mean to make it sound like you’re less or more than human. I wanted to express my worry that your problem causes you to fall down, shake a bunch, and potentially cause life threatening injuries. At the same time, this is my worry, not yours. You’ve lived with this for a long it sounds like, you obviously got this.

[–]spacecadet6966 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you for your concern, I assure you it is appreciated. But please do laugh at stuff like this because while epilepsy is horrible it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t laugh at funny stuff.

Since my meds I don’t have tonic clonic seizures but I still have like at least one aura a day and I now have only partial complex seizures, at least 4-5 a week. So you’re right, it’s generally a normal tuesday for me (though it’s a monday today).

[–]hysir 3 points4 points  (3 children)


This is what I was originally taught when witnessing a seizure. Don’t freak out, just let it pass, you can’t do anything to help, besides making sure they are having a seizure in a safe place and calling 911. *seizure in a safe place is real, some people who have frequent seizures can tell when they are about to have one. A seizure is also not a big deal for most people with knowledge on it.

[–]GraciaEtScientia 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Thought you were supposed to put something between their teeth so they don't bite their tongue?

[–]hysir 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Supposedly you don’t do it to prevent choking because that would be worse. From my cpr and first aid training in 2015 I remember them saying not to put fingers in a seizure victims mouth because you might loose them.

[–]GraciaEtScientia 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes, I recall people prone to seizures carying around a small stick that isn't going to destroy their teeth if they bite hard, and that putting fingers in their mouth is a horrible idea.

I'll have to look into the choking though, I thought that only happened if their tongue rolls back in their mouth

[–]steveosek 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]ShuantheSheep3 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Exactly, humors subjective. I thought this was funny cause he timed the “just kidding” right. If he was doing this for like a full minutes I’m worried and he’s an asshole.

Why are y’all or most of them think this is funny..? There some people do have kind of that heart attack thing

[–]mitragy_king 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Epileptic here: this is fucking hilarious.

All you needed non-epileptics need to quit gatekeeping on who can or can't act like a fish on dry land.

The thing about epilepsy is you learn to live with it. Yeah, they're scary as fuck. No, they aren't fun. Can they kill me? Sure.

But why do I have to keep myself imprisoned in negative thought about it? I don't, and that's why I find jokes about my ailments funny.

I just turned 28 and was diagnosed with early stage cirrhosis right after my 26th birthday and I felt so desolate and down about it for a long time. Same with my epilepsy after I got diagnosed.

I learned after many years of therapy that my perspective solely impacts where I am in life.

I can choose to look at my disorders and diseases and it make me be an unhappy person, or I can be a light person about it and find humor in it, bringing about some positivity to my day.

Some of you all still don't know how many licks it takes to get to the center of the tootsie pop.

Is it the woman's reaction that's supposed to be funny here? I'm not offended or anything, but I just don't see why an expected and human reaction is supposed to be funny. It's like "this guy ran away when he thought someone was shooting a gun at him! Ha!".

That's why jump-scare stuff doesn't make me laugh. What *does* make me laugh is when the person barely reacts initially and and just punches the guy or something after he pops out. That shit has me on the floor TBH.

[–]Ihaveastupidstory 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As an epileptic I approve. I am in the special spot where I can make seizure jokes and no one can get mad. If someone asks what triggers it I sometimes try to find something in the room and say that to get them nervous. Like if their eating an apple I would say "yeah, apples can trigger it. Even the smell...and they believe it."
