It took the firefighters nearly an hour to free him

After their attempts failed, they called rescue services for help.

"We're seriously unimpressed", the West Midlands Fire Service tweeted, adding, "Five of our firefighters were tied up for an hour this afternoon, freeing a YouTube pranker whose head had been "cemented" inside a microwave oven".

The operation involved an ambulance crew and the fire service.

The man has since been identified as YouTube personality Jay Swingler and the stunt was part of the TGFbro channel's "extreme Christmas calendar, ' in which Swingler and his friend set each other challenges in the countdown to December 25".

In a video "response" posted to his TGFBro YouTube channel on Friday, Swingler made light of the news coverage surrounding the now-viral video and the "abuse" he received for performing the stunt.

Commander Shaun Dakin, the officer in charge of the West Midlands Fire Service explained how removing the appliance from the prankster's head was not an easy feat, the Metro reported.

The jokers wanted to use the microwave as a mould but they ended up having to call the fire brigade after spending 90 minutes frantically trying to free him.

Margot Robbie Reveals Why She Likes Playing Harley Quinn
In an interview with MTV , Robbie revealed she has been working on another Harley project for two years. But damn if we don't want to see Margot Robbie in pigtails and booty shorts for another three hours.

Describing the incident, West Midlands Fire Service crew Watch Commander Shaun Dakin told local media outlet News Barrhead: "As amusing as this sounds, this young man could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured".

During their struggles to free the 22-year-old man, the friends fed a tube into the microwave to help him breath while they worked to free him.

"As amusing as this sounds, this young man could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured", added Watch Commander Dakin.

It took the firefighters almost an hour to free him.

The firefighters consulted their technical rescue colleagues who guided them to carefully remove the Polyfilla around the young man's head using a screwdriver.

"He was very relieved when we removed a large chunk of the Polyfilla with a screwdriver, allowing him to breathe more easily".
