Summer is a season where anything seems possible and for this group of friends, they experienced one of those magic summer moments. Most groups of friends escape to beaches, lake houses, or hang out by rivers, to toss their cares to the side for a few days. These friends were prepared to do just that but while they were relaxing they didn’t anticipate that they would be confronted with a potentially scary scenario.
It happened when they were relaxing down by the river and saw a cooler floating by. What they found next gave this group the shock of their lives.

10. An Usual Object Floats Down The River
One of the guys thought he spotted an Igloo cooler floating on down the river. As you can see, it wasn’t hard to spot the cooler given its size and the fact that it was out of place. Immediately, one of the guys took his cell phone to record what happened next.

9. The Group Hopes It’s Treasure
At first, the group thought it might have belonged to people who were staying on the riverbank. After asking people outside of their group, the guys wondered what could be inside of the mysterious cooler. One of the guys joked “I’m hoping it’s cocaine.” The cameraman wondered if there was some treasure inside.
8. Something Sure Is Fishy
After deliberating what could be in the mysterious cooler, a man in blue shorts decides to spring into action to fetch it out of the river. With his dog following behind him, the two decide that there’s definitely something “fishy” in the cooler, but what could it be? They were about to find out.

7. The Cooler Is Duct Taped
When they pulled the cooler from the river they discovered that whoever floated the cooler down the river didn’t want anyone to open it. Wrapped around the heavy cooler was duct tape. The group wondered what was in the cooler that someone would wrap duct tape around it to ensure safety?
6. What’s Inside The Cooler?
The man decides to peel the duct tape off to get a closer look at what was in the cooler. He peeled the duct tape strip by strip as the group anticipated what would happen next. The man filming asked, “Has it got one of those hatches? Open the hatch!”
What they discover inside the cooler is chilling.

5. What He Sees Is Shocking
After the guy peels off the duct tape and opens the cooler, he jumps back almost immediately, in horror over what he saw. But what exactly did he see? From the photo above it looks like a small body, but is it dead? Is it even a body? Click the next slide to find out.
4. What’s Behind The Doll?
The guy that opened the cooler surely must have been wetting himself at first glance but what was inside was harmless in comparison. What initially looked like a small child, was actually a baby doll. What the heck? Why would anyone stuff a small doll in a cooler? And duct taped no less?

3. Is This A Ruse?
The group then horsed around and made fun of the guy that opened the cooler. Of course, it was a ruse! Why would anyone stuff a child in a cooler? Hearing the rowdy noise, a woman wandered over to see what the fuss was about and took a peek inside the cooler.
2. Searching For Answers
Although it turned out to be a joke, it made them all wonder why a doll would wind up in a cooler in the first place. Was it a prop? Was someone playing a practical joke? More people crowd around the cooler and one woman even snaps a photo of the doll.
1. Who Got Dibs On The Doll?
The group decided to make the best of the weird situation. The cameraman who was hoping for treasure yelled that he had “dibs on the doll.” Of course, what he got was much more than originally expected. After the group uploaded the video, it went viral and received over nine million views on YouTube. Crazy!
When the video went viral, one YouTube commenter pointed out that the cameraman had to be in on the prank because he was filming before it all began. Another commented that the “duct tape was still sticky. If that had been in the water for more than 10 minutes, the tape would have stopped sticking, so this is probably fake.”
So what’s the real story here? The truth lies in the YouTubers name “MrTechnicalDifficult.” A quick browse over his previous uploads reveals that he’s uploaded other prank videos in the past, so it looks like we can categorize this whole saga as an epic prank.
