But his friend ducked him by holding the bag and pranked on him.

“Oh my god, bro, that’s already so impressive. Oh, my bro, this is insane. Bro, that was a close one,” added Garcia’s friend in the video.

Consequently, this video clip grasped a lot of attention. Fans took to the comment section and shared their views about this prank.
