In an extraordinarily eccentric event, a seemingly ordinary father from Liege, Belgium made the bewildering choice to feign his own demise. Surprisingly, he reappeared in a helicopter during his own funeral days later. What was the logic behind this act? He wished to discern who would genuinely grieve his loss had he truly departed.
The question remains, why did people not hold him in high regard initially?
This peculiar and somewhat distasteful incident, tinged with an element of humor due to its sheer absurdity, unfolded this past weekend.
For the proclamation of his alleged "demise," 45-year-old TikToker David Baertan enlisted the assistance of his wife and children, quite predictably. “Rest in peace, Daddy. I will never stop thinking about you. Why is life so unfair? Why you? You were going to be a grandfather, and you still had your whole life ahead of you. I love you! We love you! We will never forget you,” one of his daughters wrote on her Facebook page.

A few days later, when the funeral was scheduled, numerous friends and relatives arrived donned in black, prepared to bid their final farewell to their late acquaintance.
However, a video uploaded online captures a helicopter gradually coming into view from afar. As it draws nearer, the attendees grow increasingly bewildered and anxious about the unfolding event – their confusion heightens especially when the helicopter lands and out steps David, triggering a rush of emotional relatives and friends towards him.
The prank has provoked varied responses online.
On one side, there are those familiar with him who are relieved that he is, well... not actually deceased.
David continues to stand by his choice to feign his own demise.
This really makes you wonder. What is this nut going to do for his birthday?
