If your friend’s snoring is keeping you up, do not be this guy

You're not even safe from pranking when you're sleeping.

If someone is snoring to the point that you can’t fall asleep, don’t wake them up like this.

We feel for the man in this video, we really do. We’ve all had parents, siblings, friends, and significant others whose snoring has penetrated walls. It’s annoying and frustrating. But this sleep-deprived fellow decided to go beyond the pale, hitting his friend as hard as he could to wake him up.

(Sorry, this embed was not found.)

It’s unclear what’s responsible for his friend’s lighting-quick reaction:. Perhaps he’s prepared himself to wake immediately when the zombie apocalypse hits, or perhaps he’s just prepared himself to handle anything the second he wakes up unexpectedly.

Either way, it seems clear that he had things under control—and hopefully, he started dreaming about revenge after he managed to fall asleep again.
