Dec 04, 2012— -- It was only a week ago that the ghostly elevator prank by Brazilian variety show host, Silvio Santos went viral. While some are still recovering from the freaky little girl in that video, the show has already moved on to a new equally terrifying sketch.

This time around the prank involves a coffin, a supposedly dead man, and another elevator ride.

The breakdown is fairly predictable: Clueless person jumps into what seems like a functional elevator, men yell for this person to hold the door while they wheel in a coffin. Then they ask the person to continue holding the door while they grab some flowers. Of course, the door shuts even as the elevator rider holds the "open doors" button. There's fear at being left alone with a body, but the worse is yet to come. The elevator jams, the rider usually gets angry. That is, until the coffin opens and a body falls out. There is a lot of yelling and crying so you might want to watch the video wearing headphones.

The video, which was uploaded on Sunday, already has more than 400,000 views.

The prank is, yet again, not an original creation of the Programa Silvio Santos. Just For Laughs , a television show, pulled an identical prank and uploaded it to YouTube in February.

It's hard to say what could be freakier than a fake body falling out of a coffin, but there's a good chance that whatever it is, it will end up on Santos' show.
