The prank drew some fire on TikTok but woman insists he thought it ‘hilarious’
A man named Seth Roberts became the answer the hard way when his sister pranked him with a gift of dissolvable shorts for their family’s beach trip.
Dara Roberts posted the prank on her TikTok account , getting some backlash in the process.
The video begins with her brother in bright blue bathing shorts. He races his three brothers into the water and starts to throw around a football with them while waist deep.
The reality of his situation becomes apparent fast.
“My swimming trunks ripped … bad,” Seth says as he covers his nether regions beneath the waves.
Dara, recording his dilemma, can be heard bursting into laughter.
“Quit videoing me. I’m serious,” Seth says. “I’m naked!”
He refuses to get out of the water until one of his family members brings him a new pair of shorts.
“We still haven’t told him the truth. Seth, if you see this. I’m sorry,” Dara captioned the clip.
Some TikTok viewers slammed the prank, with one saying, “Funny in a backyard pool, but not in a PUBLIC place with your sibling.”
Another wrote: “This is more embarrassing than funny. He sounded genuinely upset.”
Several said if it had been a woman in a dissolving bathing suit, the authorities would be called.
Dara, however, said her brother thought it was “hilarious.”
“He actually thought it was more funny than any of us thought,” she said in another video posted to TikTok.
