Lebanese pranksters create "Elevator of Doom" to scare members of public

A group of Lebanese pranksters scared the wits out of unsuspecting members of the public recently when they took over a lift in Beirut to create what they called the "Elevator of Doom."

One stunt which the "How About Beirut" team of practical jokers repeated several times saw them enter a busy lift and then on queue all fall to the floor as if they'd simultaneously died, leaving the real members of the public wondering what on earth they'd just witnessed.

In another prank, a man wearing fake arm coughed and then whipped his real arm out as though it had somehow burst from his body.
