Supercars Burning Are One Awful Prank

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the world of pranks has reached a ridiculous level, where people in search of trolling thrills don’t even appear to think about what crossing the line means. The latest example of this sees supercars and luxury machine drivers being tricked into believing their beloved vehicles are on fire.

The prank was pulled using a smartphone smartass app that lets you take pictures of cars and them portrays them as being on fire, or covered in smoke. The trolling fans used the app and them went to the driver to let them know about what happened.

The footage doesn’t look all that real, at least not for all the drivers involved. More than one guy seems to be running towards his vehicle way too slow for a man who’s car is being devoured by flames.

The prank also seems to include a policeman, whose motorcycle is the subject of this bad joke.

Earlier this week, we wrote about another prank app of this type, called Prank My Ride. This allows the user to select between multiple types of damage, not just fire, going from a police trie lock to key scratches and dents.

Fortunately, the application doesn’t do anything more than simply place background-less png objects over the photo of the target car, so the result is a poor quality pic that won’t fool too many people.

Sometimes when it comes to emergencies, people’s awareness is already too low and such pranks can only increase the problem. Imagine a near future where people take the time to ask themselves if a situation is real or not before deciding to act.

Besides, enough supercars burn on their own, there’s really no need for such help.
