Yup! This really happened.

A prankster claiming to be a fire marshal convinced Burger King employees to smash out their windows to avoid a gas leak. The police were called by a passerby.

When the police showed up to the Burger King the employees told them they got a call from someone claiming to be from the fire department. They said the person on the phone told them the business was filling up with gas and the only way to release it was to smash out all the windows.

As you can see by the video above, they did it.

By smashing out all the windows they caused $10,000 in damages. No word if they caught the prankster or if the employee got fired.
