There's a special pleasure in seeing other people getting scared to high hell. Admit it, every time there's a new collection of photos from haunted houses, you check them out.
But scares don't have to be limited to places where scares are expected. You can get spook-pranked pretty much anywhere. In fact, you'll probably freak someone out way more if you scare them in a place they least expect it.
Which is probably why this virtual shark tank exhibit at the Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. museum managed to convince this guy he was going to die for just a second.
And no, I'm not exaggerating, just take a look at his face at the end of this clip.
You gotta love how he looks at the camera as if to say, "I almost died!" or "please tell me you have spare underpants."
People obviously loved his over the top reaction.
He started a conversation about that hidden urge some people have to expressly do things they're not supposed to.
He is the patron saint of all of us who cannot resist the "DON'T PUSH THE BUTTON" sign and I love him.— Harriet Flashman (@HarrietFlashmam) October 29, 2017
Oh, I couldn't resist either. I pressed it. It set of a not very loud alarm and a flashing red light for a few seconds.— Veronica K. B. Olsen (@VeronicaInPink) October 30, 2017
The spooked-out dude shouldn't feel too bad. He isn't the only one who's been mercilessly scared by the digital shark.
