Anyone who is a little sister to one or more brothers knows that older brothers often have a penchant for doing whatever they can to screw with their little sisters. Last week, three brothers took sibling pranking to a whole new level, when they convinced their little sister that a zombie apocalypse was happening, while she was in a drug-addled state, following dental surgery. They also recorded the entire zombie apocalypse prank and uploaded the video to YouTube.
Last week, when Millicent Phillips went to the dentist to have her wisdom teeth removed, she didn’t expect to wake up in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, but thanks to her three older brothers, Cabot, Hudson, and Barrett, that’s exactly what happened. On Monday, Cabot Phillips, the instigator of the zombie apocalypse prank, uploaded the video he and his brothers made to YouTube, and it has quickly gone viral.
The sudden fame is thanks, mainly, to Millicent’s epic drug-induced one-liners and her ability to keep a semi-calm head while facing what she believes to be a full-blown zombie apocalypse, says Cabot, according to USA Today.
“The typical wisdom teeth videos are funny but we wanted to do something a little different, and thought the zombie aspect might be a fun twist. We just didn’t anticipate how expressive she would be, and how many one-liners she’d produce — even when terrified and in a drug-induced state.”
The video starts out innocent enough, with Millicent being dropped off at her dental appointment and her brother asking if she had any final words. When she wakes up, however, she finds herself in the middle of a zombie outbreak, a prank that involved family, friends, and even the poor girl’s dentist. As they are driving home from the dentist, a warning from the Center for Disease Control comes over the radio, telling people to stay inside, reports Bloody Disgusting. Although they never actually mention a zombie apocalypse it’s very clear what the warning was about.
“The Center for Disease Control in Washington, D.C. has issued a viral outbreak warning. State and local officials have reported cases of high fever, nausea, death, and even cannibalism.”
In on the prank, their mother then calls and is put on speaker. She says she heard the CDC warning as well and that they were saying “this is not a test.” She urges the two to get home right away. As they pull into their driveway, Cabot gets out of the car and tells Millicent to stay put. She is very confused and can be heard mulling over the news, “Like cannibals? Zombies?”

What follows is a hilarious zombie apocalypse themed prank, complete with her brothers asking Millicent increasingly ridiculous, but urgent questions — “We can only take funfetti or chocolate cake, which should we take? We can only take one pet, which pet? The cat or the dog?” This particular question has left many viewers in stitches over Millicent’s forceful answer.
“The cat, you idiot! [The dog] is the worst! He’s already dying! Leave him, get the cat!”
The brothers don’t end their zombie apocalypse prank there, stopping to put weapons — garden equipment — into the back of the car and grabbing the cat. The brothers then tell Millicent that the zombie apocalypse has yet to hit Mexico, so that is where they will be heading and asking her if she remembers any of her high school Spanish class. Good news: She can say “pants!”

After driving around the city for five minutes, continuing to convince their shaken and confused sister that a zombie outbreak is happening, they finally come clean, telling her that it was all a joke and there was no zombie apocalypse.
