Professional prankster has tables turned when he pulls clown prank with the wrong person

A California man, who bills himself as a professional prankster, almost took a prank too far.

Sadiq Mohammad spent last week scaring people -- all for his website.

His videos have racked up more than 6.7 million clicks daily on Instagram and his website, Hoodclips, KCRA reported.

But one prank almost put an end to the 20-year-old man's career.

He apparently picked the wrong person to jump in front of, dressed as a clown.

Instead of scaring the apparent victim, the man pulled out a gun, even after he was told that it was a prank, and he pistol-whipped Mohammad, KCRA reported.

In the video, which includes explicit language, Mohammad stumbles before running away. The cameraman also ran away.

"Lesson learned is, people don't play with the clown stuff," Mohammad said. "Like, people really will shoot anybody."

Mohammad said he will continue pulling pranks, but not dressed as a clown.

Neither he nor his cameraman filed a complaint with police.
