HOUSTON – A man was duct-taped to a sign in the Houston suburb of Channelview after he apparently lost a bet.
Video of the stunt, which happened at Wallisville Road at Beltway 8, shows two men wrapping tape around a third man as he hugs a yield sign pole.
“We’re going to tape this boy up!” one man said in the video as he clapped two rolls of duct tape together.

The two men are seen circling the pole with the tape, taunting the third man as they wrap him up while vehicles pass on the busy roadway.
When the man being taped was securely fastened to the pole, the two men removed the stool on which he had been standing, and he was lef suspended in the air, kicking his feet.
In one video, someone said, after seeing someone with a phone, "They're calling the cops. Ha!"
The video ends with an ambulance and other emergency response vehicles responding to the man who was wrapped up in tape.
