Daytrippers, who went to England’s Formby Beach to spend some quality time with their loved ones, were terrified by a “tree" that jumped at them as they walked. The incident occurred last month and people were shocked without knowing what or who was behind it. Formby Beach, located in Maryland, England, is popular among people in nearby areas. The beach has iconic sand dunes and hundreds of acres of woodland which makes it a great place to spend a summer day.
According to media reports, people were shocked to witness “walking trees". However, later it came to light that Manchester-based YouTuber Alvin Hub had set up a “bushman" prank at the Victoria Road entrance to the beach. Dressed from head to toe and with fake green leaves, the YouTuber executed the prank brilliantly. He stood next to a tree. He was seen jumping at people walking in front of him. Later, people recognized him and their hilarious reactions were caught on camera.
Alvin uploaded the video on Youtube on July 18. The video has garnered over 84,000 views so far.
In the description of the video, Alvin wrote that this was one of his best prank videos. He said that everyone on the beach was so focused that they never saw the “bushman" standing there.
“I have never had such a wonderful moment filming pranks and it was a privilege to meet some awesome people with the best sense of humour,” he said.
The video features people of all ages, startled by the “bushman" as they walked to and from the beach. The viewers showered their love for Youtubers in the comment section.
“Everyone’s a thug until the bushes come at you,” a user wrote.
“Great location and great job,” said another.
