KIRKWOOD, Arizona – A student at Kirkwood Community College in Phoenix has been the subject of a viral social media prank.
The student posted a video to his social media page on Saturday morning and a few minutes later, his video was shared by more than 2,300 people.
“I posted a photo of my house on Instagram last night and got about 30 likes,” said the student, who asked to be identified only as “B.G.”
“I got a few comments but mostly they were supportive.
It’s just been a really good week.
I got a lot of support from friends, family, coworkers, and other people.”
The prank started with a student taking a selfie with his friend’s house in the middle of the night and then taking a picture with it and posting it to his Instagram page.
He then shared the photo with his friends on Twitter.
He then posted a short video to Instagram, captioned it “I’m going to take a selfie in my house tonight.
#nomore #tuesday” and sent it to friends on Facebook.
“The next day, I had over 1,000 likes and comments,” he said.
“I also got some more comments that I think are really funny.”
B.B. said he posted the photo to Instagram to get some more feedback and then went ahead and posted the video.
He said he thought it was a joke, but people were just kind of amused by the idea.
“People just laughed at me and said ‘You’re just joking, right?'” he said, laughing.
“And then they said ‘We should make it into a video.’
I was like ‘Well, you’re not making it into anything, you just make a video and share it.
I think that’s a great idea.'”
The video has since been shared more than 12,000 times and B.B.’s friends are now calling him the ‘Nasty Boy.’
B.H. was inspired to make the video after a friend of his said he had been making fun of him on Twitter about his age.
Bhagat said the reaction has been positive and the students he has been talking to are also supportive.
“The reaction to the video has been really good.
I just think it’s really great,” he explained.
He hopes to share it again this week and then maybe even go back to school and work for the next semester.
