Prankster ties photographer's Shoelaces at game

An unsuspecting photographer fell victim to a prank when his shoelaces were tied to a fence during a football game in Larne, Northern Ireland.

Larne resident Paul McKeen recorded footage of the photographer lying on turf at the edge of the pitch taking photos of the NIFL game between Larne FC and Warrenpoint Town.

The video shows the photographer appear to realize his laces were tied to the fence before two stewards come to his rescue – much to the delight of onlookers.

Speaking to Storyful, McKeen said he spotted the photographer, who is his first cousin, and asked a steward to sneak up behind him and tie his laces to the fence.

McKeen said the photographer was stationary for around 20 minutes before he realized he’d been pranked.
