Thought the government's 'don't drink and drive' campaigns have been hard-hitting over the years? Try this video.

Tom Mabe's friend here had already been arrested five times for drink driving. So after passing out once more after a drinking session, his family decided to let Mabe and others teach him a lesson.

They put him in an office mocked up as hospital room - and when he woke up, told him he'd been in a coma for 10 years.

The prank included fake medical staff and even fake TV news reports - and if it wasn't making a serious point it would, of course, just be downright cruel. Check out how it played out above. And remember: don't drink and drive, kids. Hopefully this video will be enough to persuade you of that...
