TikToker David Baerten go down in history as the cruellest and most bizarre practical joke that a person has ever done. After getting weary of the disrespectful treatment he received from his family and friends, TikToker David Baerten made the decision to stage his own death.
What’s more, it seems that his wife and children were complicit in the scheme as well!
It all started when the TikToker children recorded a heartfelt farewell message to their father, whom they claimed had passed away in a sad accident.
TikToker David Baerten faked his death, appears on the funeral day and this happened
“May you finally find rest, Daddy. I promise that I won’t ever stop considering you. Why is life quite so lopsided? Why you? You were about to become a grandfather, but the majority of your life was probably still ahead of you. I love you! We love you! They said on their website, “We will never, ever forget you.” The word rapidly spread and was disseminated to a wider circle of family members as well as friends.
Following the “tragic” news, Baerten’s family held a funeral for him, which dozens of other family members as well as close friends attended. The unprepared family, who were all dressed in black, were taken aback when a helicopter neared the location and eventually landed in the vicinity.
Everyone in attendance was completely taken aback when the “deceased” father stepped down from the helicopter alongside a film team and revealed that the whole thing had been an elaborate hoax. “Cheers to you all, and welcome to my funeral,” he remarked as they entered the building.
While some members of the family couldn’t believe what they were seeing and hurried to embrace Baerten, others in the family were completely perplexed and couldn’t wrap their heads around what was taking place.
“What I see in my family often causes me pain, and I’m never asked to do anything the rest of the family does. Nobody notices me. We had all become more isolated. I felt unappreciated,” Baerten remarked.
After the event, when asked about the reasons for faking his death, Baerten offered the following explanation: “That’s why I wanted to give them a life lesson and show them that you shouldn’t wait until someone is dead to meet up with them,” he said. “I wanted to show them that you shouldn’t wait until someone is dead to meet up with them.”
Baeten has disclosed that family members have been contacting one another significantly more since the fake death and burial that they staged. It would appear that the hoax achieved the desired impact.
