Firefighters called to rescue YouTuber with head cemented in microwave

A man with his head stuck inside a microwave

TGFBro, a YouTube prankster whose previous stunts include setting himself in jello overnight and bathing in fake tan lotion, had filled a microwave with wet cement and placed his head inside, using a breathing tube to, you know, stay alive.

An attempt to post a prank video online ended a little different for a 22-year-old man from Fordhouses, Wolverhampton.

They eventually called for help.

West Midlands Fire Service tweeted that they were "seriously unimpressed" by the prank.

The 22 year old prankster, who was trying to make a mould of his head in the freaky stunt, became stuck when his friends poured polyfilla around his head (which was already protected with a plastic bag).

We're seriously unimpressed. Five of our firefighters were tied up for an hour this afternoon, freeing a YouTube.

Watch Commander Shaun Dakin, who responded to the incident, said: "As amusing as this sounds, this young man could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured". Dakin added, "As amusing as this sounds, this young man could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured".

While some may find the stunt amusing, the fire crew spent over an hour struggling to get the man free.

It took five firefighters an hour to get the microwave apart and the plaster off his head.

"It took us almost an hour to free him".

To the relief of the confined youngster, the firefighters managed to remove a large chunk of the Polyfilla using a screwdriver, but only after carefully working through the cement close to the man's head.

Late Thursday, the channel shared a video, which contains some distressing scenes, of the stunt-gone-wrong.
