Yet another West Ham prank video backfires

They say timing is everything in comedy.

Sadly,  The club’s latest attempt at humour appears to have back fired again.

A prank video posted by the club a few hours ago shows the injured Jack Wilshere climbing into jump into a West Ham tumble drier before jumping out in a bid to frighten Declan Rice.

Supporters have questioned the responsibility of showing anyone climbing into a tumble drier citing obvious heath and safety concerns but the real back lash seems to be around an injured player earning £100,000 per week who can’t play for the club but can jump out of a tumble drier in a prank video.

The video is the latest in a series of sense of humour failures. Last week the Advertising Authority banned a prank video containing Declan Rice and a traffic warden as it promoted gambling.

There have also ill timed digs by the Hammers social media team including one aimed at Jose Mourinho saying “See you on Saturday, Jose” which was later deleted.

  1. For me, the Jack Wilshere prank video was nothing more than good to see. He looks fit and well and it shows that there is a great bond among the players and they are in good spirits after being robbed against Sheffield United. It is also good that Jack wants to stay because at his best he would be like a new signing. I know his fitness issues have been frustrating, to say the least but IF we sold him you can bet he would have a run of games injury free. We have come too far to let him go now and with him back along with Antonio and Fab things will look much brighter. COYI

    • Absolutely. He is quality and showed it at Arsenal. As for all the PC manners, complaining he sets a bad example, how many smoke?

  2. Shameless and brainless. Try putti g on some boots mate – but if you are really unable to play try refusing part of your £100k every week – that’s the real joke. Clown.

  3. I am all for team bonding but showing jack of all the players🙄🙄 it’s another own goal in a long line of them ,nearly as stupid of signing another goal keeper with same injury as the 2 we have .

  4. ” try refusing part of your £100k every week” – Ridiculous comment.

    Mark Phillips: Well put.

    Signing any player will always be a gamble on injuries, etc. Workplace injuries occur in all walks of life. To suggest that someone is slagging off without a shred of evidence and that they should give up their paycheck and then call them names like a child would in the playground is shameless and brainless. in fact, that this player is taking some of his $100k and getting additional private physiotherapy suggests that he is doing what it takes as a professional to get back in.

  5. Did someone say ‘like a new signing’ ?
