“If you were upset, I’m sorry. A lot of you guys wanted this and we just wanted to do what you guys wanted,” said Betzing. “We hope you guys take this lightly because it wasn’t meant to be too serious.
“With that being said…you probably hate us right now for pranking you,” added Brueckner. “We’re sure you guys have sent so much love our way right now, and we appreciate guys for being so supportive.”
According to Jatie Vlogs they have spent a lot of time indoors because of all this Lockdown thing going on.
And they wanted to “give back to the community” by playing a little joke on them.
But they never thought that this would go so wrong as looking at the support they got from their past pranks.
“We just posted our empty house tour video, they’re all expecting the moving in video — let’s mess with them,” Betzing said. “Let’s move in together, and kind of ‘take a break.’”
“It’s fun to prank you guys. You watch us prank each other, our friends, our family — you watch us prank everybody, so it’s about time you guys got pranked,” added Brueckner.
