‘It scared the crap out of me, especially because earlier that day there was a real cockroach in our bathroom,’ Sannicandro said.
‘I told Vito that he opened a can of worms, but he said that he wasn’t scared and was too old to cry.’
So Sannicandro began planning the prank of all pranks and made sure to get permission from Vito’s parents before putting it into motion.
During Vito’s regular haircut, the video shows Sannicandro as he begins to use the clippers and sets the boy up for the prank by warning him it’s the ‘real sharp one’.

The boy’s calm demeanor suddenly changes as he begins to feel the fake blood running down the side of his face.
‘Oh no,’ he says. ‘Mommy!’
‘Shhh, don’t tell her,’ Sannicandro says. ‘I think you’re okay, we’ll just put a little pressure on it.’
But as he pushes out more blood, Vito becomes even more scared and squeezes his eyes shut in fear.

‘You cried, you cried,’ his mother says as Vito admires his ear in the mirror.
