Guy Stuck To Lamppost

Not an up-and-coming pole dance move.

New rule: don't trust your friends, and don't trust long poles.

There's a hilarious new prank grabbing the internet's attention, and it basically involves a pole, misplaced trust, and people's legs being hacked. 

Turns out, if you cross your legs a certain way when sliding down a pole, your weight pins them underneath you when you land, and prevents you from untangling yourself - rendering you completely helpless and unable to pull yourself back up. THE PERFECT CRIME.

These guys demonstrate it with their friend in the video below. He gets super-stuck to a lamppost, from a mixture of being unable to move and suffering a laughing fit. We can imagine this being put to good use during a lot of stag parties. 

Legend says he is still trapped to that pole, doomed to an eternity of giggling.
