This mom must have one heck of a poker face. YouTube user Paula Papen decided to make her 8-year-old son think that he unintentionally bought a $50,000 Mustang while surfing eBay. In the video, you can see his reaction, as the accidental car owner starts crying and lamenting that his family would need to "sell everything" to pay for it. It wasn't long before some YouTube commenters said the boy's mom went too far with the prank. She responded to the comments, saying: "It was a joke, take it for what it is! Laugh a little. Anyone who knows us knows that we are a silly family who laughs WITH and yes, sometimes, even AT each other!"

So what do you think: Do you agree that it's just a joke, or did the prank go too far?
