Halloween pranks generally mean scaring the crap out of someone, and that is exactly what happened to the hosts on this morning’s ‘AM’ show.
Ryan Bridge, Nicky Styris and Melissa Chan-Green were signing off the morning’s episode when one of the most horrifying-sounding screams of all time can be heard before two grey-faced zombie ghost things run onto the set and continue the screaming.
Check it out below (headphone wearers be warned):
“NOPE,” Newshub wrote in the caption, which is legit my reaction. “That’s enough work for today.”
Chan-Green just wanted to get out of there saying: “I want to go home… that is very scary,” which is probably the right call.
Haven’t heard a scream like that since I had to tell the bro that KFC were all out of chicken.
Honestly, if this happened to me as I was about to leave work for the day I would’ve either boosted out the door like Usain when the starting gun goes off or that zombie thing would’ve caught hands, sorry not sorry.
It turns out another AM presenter, William Waiirua, also dressed up as one of the “Halloween Haunters” as Newshub calls them in their reporting on the story.
They also reported that after the initial scare, the haunters continued messing up people’s day by going to another part of the office and spooking people out.
“There’s a lot of scary people up there already, so I think they will be fine,” Bridge said, having a laugh about the whole situation.
I’m normally a fan of pranks but not sure I could’ve hacked this one. Earlier in the year, we covered a prank I’m a much bigger fan of.
A daughter posted a TikTok where she tells her Dad to hurry up and put his shoes on before telling him “this girl is pulling up to fight me and she’s bringing her Dad”.
