All too often the best pranks don’t receive the accolades they deserve, so when one mate saw the opportunity to pull in a national audience, he found it too hard to resist.
As BBC morning viewers watched Springwatch’s Chris Packham chatting to weather presenter Carol Kirkwood in the English village of Bourton-on-the-water, they couldn’t help but notice some action unfolding in the background.
Two mates could be seen walking side-by-side next to the River Windrush when one poor lad was sent flying into the water.
As the TV segment went ahead as planned, the dripping wet man can be seen emerging from the water, much to the amusement of viewers.
Loved seeing a man pushed into water behind you. Funny start to day for my Grandaughter and I
