This wake up prank was an elaborate stunt put together for the Candid Awards and it would not be amusing for those who are not morning people. Some people are able to spring out of bed in the morning, but in this case, Japanese comedian Toshiaki Kasuga had some help.

The stunt was set up for the Japanese TV show 'Dokkiri Award' (Surprise Award) and the trick involved getting Kasuga drunk and putting him to bed in a small cabin outside Mount Fuji.

After a dramatic countdown, fireworks start popping all around his bed. This is alarming in itself, but the prank brings it to a whole other level by rocketing the bed (and Kasuga still in it) through the roof of the small cabin. Considering that he was probably a little hungover, it's amazing that he didn't throw up. Stats for Rude Awakening Pranks Trending: This Year & Warm
