Tom Green's either up to his old tricks or just needs more sleep during the pandemic, but lucky for him, his fans are feeling compassionate these days ... especially his his old pal, Harland Williams.
Tom was on Instagram Live late Monday night when he appeared to conk out hard in the studio at his L.A. home. Apparently, Tom's fans and friends were concerned and began hitting up Williams ... who decided to drop by to make sure Tom was okay.
Check it out ... the camera's set up just right to catch Harland climbing over Tom's outside wall by his pool, then walking over with a flashlight to knock on the glass door to wake him up.
He popped up and seemed pretty confused, but Tom was clearly fine. Harland told Tom he got a ladder and came over because Tom wasn't responding to texts for 2 hours. Some fans watching even worried he might be dead.
Another viewer called the cops but by the time they got his address he was already awake and alert so they didn't need to go.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
It's got all the earmarkings of a Tom Green prank -- albeit not a very funny one.
Real or not, Tom said he appreciated everyone's concern and eventually got some more sleep.
