The prank has been done before, but  dared to pull it on his wife. With the little ones in back, dad told the camera how his wife was asleep as they were driving behind a semi truck being towed. 

The idea being he’ll scream and she’ll wake up to what looks like a truck driving right into them. 

After much success, mom does not look happy.
