A woman plunged through a trap door hidden inside a lift in possibly the most terrifying TV prank ever.
The unwitting victim pulls a horrified expression as she falls through the collapsing floor.
She was sent tumbling after walking into a false lift shaft as a man looked on.
It is unclear whether he is part of the prank or an unwitting witness left believing his companion is dead.
The footage then cuts to a TV studio and the woman is seen tumbling down a long, almost-vertical slide.
She is then seen flailing uncontrollably as she lands on a plastic sheet that appears to be covered in slippery goo.
The mischievous show bosses then record how long she skids for – in her case 18 metres.
After coming to a stop, the woman takes a second to compose herself before eventually seeing the funny side of the prank.
The footage was shared online by Japanese YouTube channel NeKo JGT.
