In the spirit of Halloween, magician Rich Ferguson took to the streets of San Luis Obispo, California, determined to scare the living daylights out of unsuspecting public with his head-drop prank. Upon seeing his head-drop trick, unsuspecting onlookers screamed, gawked, and, in a few cases, ran away in terror.
Ferguson is no newbie when it comes to pranks. He’s been featured on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” and performs magic around the country.
“My favorite reaction is when people scream and run away, especially when they are tough looking guys. At night, it’s almost always more fun. Nighttime causes much better reactions. It’s due to people being a state of vulnerability. However, lighting, hitting, kicking and profanities become serious issues!” said Ferguson.
