A zombie apocalypse in D.C.?!
One Leesburg, Virginia, family apparently played the ultimate prank on one of its youngest members after she had her wisdom teeth removed.
In a YouTube video, Cabot Phillips and his brother are shown convincing their sister, Millicent, that a zombie outbreak is happening while she's high on anesthesia. Even the family's dentist joined in on the prank, according to Phillips, whose LinkedIn profile boasts experience working on digital and social media efforts.

"We armed her, packed up the car and hit the road," Phillips tweeted Sunday. "It's all on tape, and it's my favorite YouTube video we've ever made."
In the video, an emergency message warning of a viral outbreak plays on the radio.
"State and local officials have reported cases of high fever, nausea, death and even cannibalism," the pre-recorded voice says.
As the brothers struggle to stifle their laughter, a shocked and confused Millicent questions their weapon choices and adamantly picks saving the cat over the family dog.
"Our family always knew Millicent would be famous... Not sure if this is what she had in mind," Phillips tweeted.
According to Phillips' LinkedIn profile, he worked most recently as a digital grassroots director for former presidential candidate Marco Rubio. He has also listed himself as a YouTube partner.
NBC has reached out to Phillips for comment.
