This is the hilarious moment a stag do dressed the groom-to-be as a corpse and wheeled him around in a COFFIN – with his friends acting as mourners.
Chris White’s mates took his last night of freedom quite literally and covered him in deathly-white make up and propped him up in an upright half-opened coffin.
With his brother Mike dressed as a vicar, and the rest of the 16-strong stag party in black ties, they wheeled him around Manchester to the delight of shocked onlookers.
Thankfully Chris survived the ordeal – despite his coffin tipping over while being wheeled down STAIRS – and ties the knot with sweetheart Sarah on Saturday.
Stag Scott Thomas, from Bristol, said: “It was total chaos.
“We did it at the hotel, and set off for the first bar, and it took 35 minutes to walk the short distance to the bar because so many people were stopping us and taking photos and chatting.
“It was all during the day, and we just got so much attention, people loved it.
“We would go to a bar, and leave Chris outside, with the coffin propped up on a sack trolley.
“We would buy him a drink, but he’d be outside pretending to be dead and then come alive when people got close to have a look.
“At one point, there were hundreds of people sitting around these steps, with a busker playing and we wheeled him over and put him right in front of this busker, and put a coat down in front of him.
“We must’ve raised about £100 just for a few minutes, and the busker made more than ever. It was hilarious.”
The stunt was the idea of friend Andrew Sallabank, whose mate Lee Winter hand-maked the coffin which was wheeled around on a trolley.
Chris, a demolitions supervisor from Bristol, caused a stir as he was wheeled through the streets of Manchester on Saturday.
Scott added: “It was only during the day, we kept it going for most of the afternoon.
“He pretty much stayed in the coffin all day and we wheeled him from pub to pub.
“There were some people he didn’t trust to wheel him, because he was worried about falling forward.
“There was one moment when Mike was pushing him and he lost him going down some stairs, but luckily he went over sideways so it was OK.
“At the end of the day, we all went back to get changed into normal clothes and went back out for the evening, with Chris very much alive.”
Chris and Sarah are getting married in Bristol on Saturday.
