UBC Prank Fails
The University of British Columbia students given the responsibility for pulling off their traditional prank of hanging a Volkswagen bug from a bridge screwed it up this year. The cabling they were using broke, and the bug fell into the water below. Kids these days! Can't they even pull off a prank properly! Link: Vancouver Sun.

The prank didn't fail, instead the students were caught by police. The city work crew screwed up taking down the Bug and that is when it crashed into the river. (The city of course blames rowdy inept students) Just a clarification.
