Some people get so addicted to playing pranks on their aids in their lifetime that even death cannot part them from their notorious habit. So is the story of Shay Bradley who lost life to cancer but did not let his funeral be a mourning saga. Mourners attending the funeral of a man got the shock of their life when they heard his voice from beyond the grave.
It later turned out that Shay Bradley had pre-planned before his death to incorporate a little humour amidst the pain of loss of his friends and family in his own funeral by pranking them like he always has when he was alive.
Mr Bradley died on October 8 after a three-year battle with cancer and his last wish was to spook his friends and family . So he managed to convince his eldest son to play a pre-recoded message at his funeral.
"Hello? Hello. Hello? Let me out!" shocked attendees heard during the funeral as his coffin was being lowered into the ground in Kilmanagh, Kilkenny, on October 12.
"Let me out," Mr Bradley's voice in the pre-recorded message continued. Is that a priest I can hear? This is Shay, I'm in the box."
As the attendees at his funeral got dead scared, the granny of eight managed to get the last laugh at his own funeral.
Video footage of the funeral, shared by his daughter Andrea Bradley, shows attendees looking shocked before they realise it's a prank and begin to laugh.
