Unless you are living under a rock, you would be aware of how Pokémon Go is one game people are totally obsessed with. The game, that allows players to catch Pokémon through augmented reality, has lead people to bump into each other, run around a park looking for a rare Pokémon and what not. In fact, reportedly, robbers have been using the game to lure people to the spot where they can rob them.
So this boy from England called Nathan Wall decided to play a prank on his mother Sharon when she got to know of the phenomenon Pokémon Go is and wanted to download it. Instead of telling her the right way to do it, he asked her to walk up to a store and ask for a card with a code on it. “When you get to the front of the que you have to lean in to the cashier and whisper in his ear ‘I want to be the very best’,” he messaged her. And imagine, his mother actually bought the story. Thanks to his convincing message. “Sounds silly I know but it’s some marketing thing to entise other customers in the que to get it. It’s free though!” he told her.
However, just when she was about to say it to the store manager, he burst into laughter. Though, he managed to capture it on video.
Nathan Wall shared the episode on Facebook which has gone viral since.
“The people in the shop realised what happened and found it hilarious. I wouldn’t say I got in trouble but I felt guilty for about 30 seconds. She took it in good spirits and is convinced she’s going to get me back,” Nathan, from Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, told TheLADbible.
