There are some pranks out there that are laugh out loud funny and some on the other side that are just perpetrated by complete and utter dickheads. This is 100% one of the latter times.
Some dickhead has gone to pretty extraordinary measures in this one to inflict pain on people he’s never even met before, after an anonymous man found a football filled with concrete in a field in Bristol. It even had a bunch of messages written on it like ‘bet that hurt’ which pretty much confirms that someone purposefully filled it up with concrete and left it there in the hopes that people would walk along and kick it and then absolutely clatter their foot.
What an absolute asshole. An anonymous man spotted it out whilst he was walking and said he almost kicked it but fortunately managed to clock it just before he made contact with it. Here’s what he had to say about it all:
We walked around the perimeter of the cricket pitch, which is in a raised part of the playing fields, and I noticed the ball pretty early on – it was my intention to go over at the end of the walk and kick it to the side somewhere.
As I was heading towards it, I noticed it looked a bit misshapen and deflated, so I just very lightly tapped it with my foot. I obviously noticed straight away it was very heavy.
The concrete patch was visible too, and on closer inspection I saw someone had scrawled on it.
Someone has gone to a lot of effort to do this,. And to keep the ball round to make it look as realistic as possible.
It was clearly intended to injure someone, there are some not very nice notes written on the ball and it’s definitely been done with a bit of malice.
I wouldn’t have thought it was done by kids either, as I doubt they would have access to concrete and the sort of materials you’d need to make it look that realistic.
Yeah I mean the guy isn’t wrong – this has taken some serious planning and effort and it’s not like whoever did it is going to get any reward unless they monitor the ball with binoculars the whole time. Seriously disturbing, bordering on psychopathic behaviour. Hopefully the guy who did it gets identified sooner rather than later as man, it sounds like he might start making Saw like traps if we’re not careful. Seriously.
