Well-known South African morning radio host and King of Pranksters, Darren ‘Whackhead’ Simpson, was heavily pranked this week in Johannesburg!

Darren is notorious for his telephone pranks and gags, and is renowned for sometimes going over the top in his efforts to prank his team members at Highveld 94.7.

On Wednesday they got him back. His producer, Brad, arranged for a few mighty snakes to visit the studio…which, as you can see in the video, shocked and scared the living daylights out of Darren whose only fear is snakes.

Please be warned – some of the language is seriously bad (and was aired live to breakfast listeners!). Some find the prank hilarious. Some are horrified. See what you think…
