War of the worlds was about Halloween and how easy it was to prank people on October 30th 1938 from a American radio drama anthology series Mercury Theatre the Halloween episode broad-casted over Columbia Broadcasting System Radio.
This was based on a book by H.G.Wells and directed by Orson Welles and compared to nowadays we generally do not find it easy at all to prank people.
Well I did not like it at all because I hate pranks especially near Halloween.
