Did Brazilian TV go too far scaring these people?

Chris worried that perhaps this video went too far.

I initially did, when I thought the video was about punking people into thinking the elevator was going to crash. Then as I watched, I have to admit, I laughed out loud.

I’m not a real fan of practical jokes – well, strike that, I love practical jokes, but as I got older I started to understand that a lot of them are kind of cruel.

So what’s your verdict: funny or cruel?
