Leesburg brothers pull ultimate viral "zombie apocalypse" prank on their sister

Brothers Cabot Phillips and Barrett Phillips filmed the elaborate prank they played on their sister Millicent Phillips, who was very loopy from the anesthesia she had just undergone.

I hate this. Too mean.

It's very weird to me that there are people who believe in zombies enough that this works on them.

I also don't really like this sort of prank, it just seems so cruel, but I know there are people who feel differently, even when it's being done to them, but I couldn't finish it.

I also found this mean, but maybe this is the sort of thing their family does and she'll get them back? I can only hope she felt like she was in on the joke in the end.

It just made me uncomfortable that they were taking advantage of a loved one in a vulnerable state (who presumably trusted them) with the intention of viral video fame. Because that's absolutely what they were doing. I'd be pretty angry at someone who did this to me, but I also hope I don't know anyone who'd be cruel enough to do so.

I did chuckle at the cat vs dog bit...

Cruelty debate aside, I wouldn't call it ultimate or elaborate without a single cosplayer... I mean, really?

She really doesn't like that dog.
