Worst bachelor party prank ever ends with shingles
The stressed caused from a kidnapping hoax led to a painful honeymoon for one unlucky groom.
One groom’s friends planned to kidnap him as part of his bachelor party. What they didn’t expect was for the groom to get shingles and almost miss the wedding as a result.
The friends stopped Ollie McAninch and his fiancée Clair Hart as they drove down a country lane. Wearing ski masks and armed with bats and smoke grenades, the friends grabbed McAninch out of the car. They took him into a nearby van where he was bound, gagged, and dressed in a jumpsuit.
Hart was in on the prank, so she screamed and watched from the car as her fiancé was taken away.
McAninch was under the impression that the stunt was real as he was driven to Devon over 100 miles away. Once he was let in on the joke, he was forced to bike the last 10 miles to his own bachelor party wearing nothing but a green mankini, similar to the one Sacha Baron Cohen donned in Borat.
“For more than two hours I was in that van,” he told the Sun. “I’ve never been so scared.”
As a result of the stunt, McAninch developed a case of shingles, which can sometimes be brought on by stress.
Since sometimes one can pass on symptoms of shingles to someone who has never had chickenpox, McAninch was advised by doctors to avoid contact with Hart for at least a month.
The couple married as scheduled, but the groom has logged the incident “for future vengeance.”
You may want to exclude him from planning the next bachelor party.
