Three brothers say they tricked their little sister into thinking there was a zombie apocalypse while she was still heavily medicated after surgery to remove her wisdom teeth.

In the clip, Millicent Phillips looks increasingly worried as a fake news report about a virus that causes cannibalism comes on the car radio. Then she loses it when her brothers start packing up the car with their personal belongings and the family cat.

The video was uploaded to YouTube by her brother Cabot Phillips, who previously worked as a digital grassroots director for Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign.
