Waking up Tuesday morning to what he described as “a crumbling building in the movie Inception sound,” 27 years-young Hal McAuthor, walking to Walgreens, later that day, saw one of the nearby college towers being demolished by a wrecking ball. He had it. He called his best friend, Daniel Booker, over to his house. The idea was for one of them to jump the construction fence while the workers were on break, sneak on-site, climb the rubble to the top floor. Then a passerby (one of them), was to cellphone-record it and pretend someone was still trapped in the half-gone building. Things went smooth until Booker saw the construction workers coming back from lunch and called for McAuthor to come down. Somehow McAuthor’s foot got stuck in a door trying to escape. The cries for help were sincere this time. Exacerbating the situation was the workers having earbuds in. Worse of all … the wrecking ball driver. As Booker ran across the street, dodging traffic, to alert the crew, he dropped his phone. An elementary school bus steamrolled right over it. Relieved criminal trespassing and reckless endangerment charges wouldn’t be pursued, the 2 friends are disappointed their 52 second viral video was thrown under the bus. Hoping to redeem themselves, they’re hoping this article written about their misfortune goes viral. “Sharing rhymes with caring,” said, McAuthor.
