Cruel wake up pranks are nothing new — but this one may be the cruelest of them all.

Just for the Hell of it, prankster James Williams says he wanted to see what would happen if he convinced his girlfriend that the creepy little girl from The Ring was crawling out of their television set.

Normal boyfriend stuff, right?

So Williams spent weeks designing and constructing a believable puppet replica of Samara which had working arms that could be manipulated from afar.

He then waited for his much better half to fall asleep in front of the TV, and attached his masterpiece to the screen.

"I didn't expect her to react like that," Williams later said. "I thought she's (sic) scream, then realize it was me joking around. I felt quite bad after. I also had my mother ring me, early Saturday morning worried about her and told me she wanted to punch my fucking face in."

Warning: The video, not surprisingly, gets loud.
