Imagine waking up to find a seagull on your face? Prank.

These sunbathers will be sleeping with one eye open from now on.

This is the hilarious moment a group of pranksters laid popcorn around some unfortunate sunbathers to attract a flock of seagulls.

And the unlucky victims look terrified when they wake to find the peckers surrounding them.

The first man to fall prey to the hungry birds jumps up and starts running off in fright.

The second reaction doesn’t disappoint either, as the tattooed chap flails his arms around in shock.

And the whole time the daring popcorn-wielders are struggling to contain their fits of laughter in the background.

Next is the women’s turn, and with an almighty scream they run into the water to escape the hungry swarm descending on them.

At that point the pranksters are on the floor themselves with laughter.
