What is it about celebrities that makes them, their lives, and their exploits so... intoxicating? Why do some of us bunch up in mobs and go crazy when we're able to catch a glimpse of them even when they have a big puffy coat drawn up around their face and five sunglassed security guards surrounding them?

Call it hero worship or just plain, old-fashioned curiosity, but the celebrity mob mentality can be a powerful force. So powerful in fact that it sometimes doesn't even matter if you don't know who they are or if they're even famous. Coby Persin decided to take advantage of it and stage an elaborate drop-off in Times Square, complete with security guards, fake screaming fans, and even his own fake GQ magazine cover. He started off with a group of 11 people and ended up with a crowd of hundreds surrounding him, all clamoring to get close to a guy who isn't even famous...

... or maybe it's just that he looks like a carbon copy of Zac Efron...

Whether you're a fan of Paris Hilton or not, this terrifying prank will likely make you feel a little bit sorry for the hotel heiress.

While flying over Dubai, an Egyptian show called “Ramez in Control (Ramez Wakel el-Gaw)” thought it would be a good idea to trick her into thinking that her plane was about to go down in flames.

Several minutes after takeoff, the aircraft starts emitting a strange smell and a warning sound that makes everyone really nervous.

“Is this normal?” Hilton asks in the video.

The pilot then lets the plane drop for a bit with the engines off and performs other various stunts while a few passengers actually grab parachutes and leap out the door.

While it was meant to be a joke, not everyone is laughing. Commenters online are calling it both “disturbing” and “mean.”

Because this is basically everyone’s worst nightmare.

Hilton has also been tweeting out links to various articles written about the prank, clarifying that her reactions are all very real.
