Fooled Into Thinking He Has Been in a Coma

When his friend was found at the wheel of his truck after drinking far too much alcohol, Tom Mabe decided he needed to take action. His friend had already been done for DUI on 5 other occasions and it was getting to the point where this guy was going to end up killing someone if not himself.

Mabe managed to get his friend into a make shift hospital room where actors pretending to be doctors proceeded to tell the friend he had just woken up after a 10 year coma. In the background they put on the TV. To add to the illusion, they had filmed a fake TV report with a newsreader stating that Hillary Clinton was now President and was about to wage war on Canada. Also that Justin Bieber had come out and was happily celebrating 10 years with this boyfriend.
