It is a prank of epic proportions but the message behind it is serious.
Two friends, YouTubers Tom Mabe and Jim Clark, decided that something drastic needed to be done about their friend who has received five DUIs.
So, when they found him passed out drunk yet again, they pulled an elborate prank.
An office was converted into a hospital room and when their drunk buddy woke up, a doctor and nurse informed him that he had been in a coma for 10 years.
As part of the prank, there was even a realistic news program set in the future talking about President Hillary Clinton and former singer Miley Cyrus's eviction from a trailer park.
The prank ended when one of the doctors revealed himself as the man's buddy and began smacking him as he lay in the hospital bed.
