What would you do if one day you open your car door and a huge pile of popcorn floods out? The exact prank has happened to an NBA player's ₦50.7m Audi R8. Check out inside for the photos and video!

Imagine walking up to your tear-rubber car and seeing it filled with popcorn. What would you do? NBA players in the Atlanta Hawks team took pranking to a whole new level by loading the brand-new Audi R8 of their teammate Trae Young with so much popcorn. Apparently, it’s all part of the pranks they usually pull on their rookies, and it’s referred to as the Rookie Razing Treatment.

For those who may not know, Rayford Trae Young is a talented American professional basketball player, who is playing for the Atlanta Hawks of NBA. This guy was born on Sep 19th, 1998 and is 1.88m tall.

Trae Young earns up to $5.4 million (equivalent to ₦1.9 billion) for the season 2018/19 when he plays in Atlanta Hawks. Young has also signed an endorsement contract with Adidas but the deal value hasn't been revealed yet. His estimated net worth at the moment is $5 million.


Adidas has soon sealed a deal with this talented boy

The basketball player had recently bought the brand-new whip following his signing of the contract worth $15.2m (~₦5.5 billion) with the club in July 2018.

The German customized whip looks sleek in its black rims and matte paint job. The cost price of the car is estimated to be ₦50.7m. With a horsepower of 532, the machine goes from 0 to 60mph in 3.7 seconds.

Tray had no idea what awaited him in his car until he arrived. As expected, the 20-year old wasn’t happy with the prank. No one would be excited about such a thing at first. But he soon got the joke, and took it in good fate because it was all part of the club’s tradition. In the end, the teammates had a good laugh over the prank as they welcomed their new teammate.

The team can hold a popcorn party instead :D
