If you had to think about it, it would take only a few seconds for you to recall the stupidest stunt you ever pulled. Why? Because you either pulled it off spectacularly, or it ended in total disaster. For one young boy from China, it was the latter.

For some bizarre reason, the unknown boy decided to pee on the control buttons for the elevator that he was traveling in. Of course, for those accomplished in tomfoolery and vandalism, it was clear that this was always going to end in tears.

Having looked directly into the eye of the security camera, the brazen boy unzipped his fly and sprayed the lift’s buttons. Clearly intent on causing as much chaos as possible he ensured that even the topmost buttons were liberally doused.

Watch the whole incident and see instant karma being served…

Content with his stunt, the boy then stands back and awaits the doors to open, but they never do. Frantically he than starts to click the emergency button – karma really is a b*tch – but the doors remain firmly sealed.

Just as his panic begins to truly set in, the lights on the freshly damp buttons begin to flash ferociously. Then the lights in the whole elevator begin to dim until they are all completely extinguished. Now the boy is trapped within the lift, as a result of his own peculiar need to pee.

Thankfully the moment was caught on camera, for without it, it would be hard to believe that anything so farcical could be real.

Official newspaper People’s Daily reported that the unnamed boy was subsequently rescued, and the footage shared via the influential Beijing News has already been viewed over 12 million times.

I hope he learned his lesson!
