The Fake Bomb Prank is a removed video uploaded on TheAngryGrandpaShow on April 3rd, 2012. In this video, Grandpa got a fan package that makes a ticking noise. Michael claimed that due to the alleged danger in the video, it was only up for about an hour before being removed by YouTube moderation team. He also, likely lying, claims that the FBI kicked Grandpas door down and his house was raided. Michael was there and hid under a table to avoid getting shot.

It is most likely Michael had lied, in attempt to gain popularity on the video, which was most likely taken down by YouTube and not actually involved by the FBI.

AngryGrandpaARCHIVES re-uploaded the aftermath video, but the video was removed in May 2018. The aftermath video was re-uploaded by another YouTube user, but has been removed once again.
