In an attempt to skip online lectures, a student staged his own abduction with the help of his friends and a video of the incident is making the rounds of the internet.
The undated video, according to reports was originally posted on TikTok and shows a professor conducting an online class at an undisclosed location, while a group of students listen to him.
But in one of the frames, a couple of masked ‘intruders’ are seen barging into a student’s room from behind and then
“Did you just see Tyler get kidnapped?” the professor asks, while the rest of the students giggle.

After many commenters suggested that Tyler might actually have been kidnapped, the boy and his ‘kidnappers’ put out another video explaining that it was a prank and they were safe, reported Fox News.
However, many have criticised the staging of a kidnapping given there was an actual case where intruders barged into a student’s house while online classes were going on.
Take a look at how people reacted to the video:
Wow! I couldn’t do that. My coworkers would find a way to get the cops to my apt 😂😂😂
They’d be calling the center asking for my emergency contact files 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/2HyTWVTILn
