Father’s Elaborate Prank: Faking His Death to Highlight the Importance of Family Bonds

A father decided to teach his family a memorable lesson by faking his own death and making a grand entrance at his funeral in a helicopter.

David Baerten, known as Ragnar Le Fou on TikTok, orchestrated the elaborate prank with the participation of his wife and children. The intention was to emphasize the significance of staying connected with loved ones.

In a social media post, one of his daughters mourned his supposed passing, expressing sorrow and love. The staged funeral took place near Liège, Belgium, and was captured on video by David, who has a substantial following of over 165,000 on TikTok.

David explained that the prank was meant to observe his extended family’s reaction and address the hurt he felt from being excluded and unappreciated. He wanted to teach them a life lesson about the importance of fostering connections and not waiting until it’s too late.

While the full video of David’s helicopter arrival at the funeral has yet to be released, a short clip shared by fellow TikToker Thomas Faut showcased the moment David landed in a field, leaving mourners astonished. He greeted them with a toast, saying, “Cheers to you all, welcome to my funeral.”

Thomas expressed his emotional rollercoaster, saying, “I swear I was crying and then I had the shock, buddy. We love you very much. You had us. We love you, my friend. We are happy you are still among us.”

David shared that only half of his family attended the funeral, but other loved ones have reached out to him since the prank, revealing who genuinely cares about him. He considered it a victory in his objective to teach the importance of maintaining relationships.

The prank sparked various reactions from viewers. Some expressed concern about the potential impact on individuals with health issues, while others questioned the sensitivity of playing with the concept of death. There were also those who saw the underlying message of cherishing family while still alive.

Following the prank’s viral spread, David revealed his plans to turn the project into a film. He had been working on it for over a year and aimed to use the buzz generated to promote his report and future films, should he find a producer.
