Today’s video, with over 1.8 million views on YouTube, shows that the spirit of a trickster is still alive with a deceased man named Shay Bradley.
In the video, we see a large gathering of loved ones mourning the loss of Shay.
The crowd sobs while bag pipes begin to play, soon after sounds can be heard from the ground where the coffin lays.
To everyone’s surprise, loud knocking and yelling appear to be coming from the coffin.
“Hello…hello, let me out” says the voice of Shay. Everyone starts to laugh as he continues on with cries for help.
He even sings toward the end of the video.
His daughter Andrea, took to Twitter to share a picture of her beloved father and share some insight.
She writes, “Here is a picture of the legend himself. My dad, Shay Bradley. It was his [dying] wish that we played this at his funeral. What a man…. To make us all laugh when we were incredibly sad….. He was some man for one man…. Love you forever Poppabear #Shayslastlaugh”.
It turns out he was a bit of a prankster and recorded himself talking and making knocking sounds to mimic him being trapped in the coffin.
It seems he wished the crowd to be full of laughter instead of the usual tears that come with burying someone.
Take a look at Shay getting the last laugh at his own funeral.
