Plastic Wrap Prank – Foil-Wrap EVERYTHING!

If you really want someone’s attention get one of those industrial size plastic foil wrap rolls companies use to wrap their palettes in.

You can do this prank yourself or get a hand by a couple of buddies. As a team you could actually wrap the entire building!

Its really simple and straight forward: in an unattended moment wrap just everything from someone you dislike or just want to pull a prank on. Entire desks are popular, lockers, bundles of clothes, coats, shoes, shelves, equipment, drawer content, books, plans, computers, bicycles, you name it…

The trick is to really use a LOT of foil. For instance you should walk around the car or desk at least 5 times and wrap it really tight. It’s quite annoying and not too easy to get the tightly wrapped plastics foil off.

This prank works even better when played on someone who is in a real hurry. Wrapping up toilet booths or cubicles should be done with someone inside. Especially when there is no pointy object around to get the foil pierced. Watch folks using their teeth or high heels instead.

If you really want to overdo it, entire buildings come to mind.

Here is a sneaky one:

A couple, caught in the act, let’s say: at a party! Delivered in plastic foil while still being “plugged” – now THAT should make it to the news!

Have fun and share your experience and ideas here.

It’s snowing! Car prank – a car, someone you hate and polystyrene

You need three things: someone you hate, access to his car and polystyrene (e.g. Styropor or Styrofoam) packaging foam.

Crumble all the polystyrene into very tiny pieces and sneak into someone’s car. Now, pour a couple of hands full of the polystyrene into all the air vents and direct them upwards.

Before leaving the car check for tracks and remove any polystyrene piece that might be visible. The car needs to look as entered. Don’t forget to turn the ventilation to full blast before you go.

You need to have an excuse to hand around the car when ignited. You don’t want to miss this moment.

Maybe you got a friend who will be given a lift. Make him take photos, while entering the car he could claim that he needs to check something on his camera.

This prank works well for a wedding! It’s up to you if you want to do this right before church or rather afterwards or even next day. This makes a great bachelor prank too, but it’s actually more fun with people who don’t expect to be pranked.

Like the bride’s parents for instance, right the moment when they pick up the wedding cake and mom wants to carry it in her lap for the short ride home.

Tell us if it worked and which divorce lawyer we can call for an entry into the Guinness Book of Records for the fastest divorce after a wedding prank.

Variations: Buses, vans (packed with 8 people right before taking off for vacation), or you can just the stuff into someone’s umbrella on a rainy day…

Who’s talking? Workplace double phone prank.

This can make for hours of fun. Play pairs of clueless co-workers against each other by setting them up with a simple cross-line experiment.

You need a unsuspicious office or meeting room with working phone connections or cell phones for that matter. Gather your friends or even a bigger crowd to enjoy the fun. In this case speaker phones work great. The better the quality the more likely you’ll experience a couple of long, confused conversations.

Get two phones into place (test before the prank).

Now, put them next to each other. Have a list of people who match or don’t ready. For example: know of two guys who can’t stand each other and get into regular cock fights? Great! Contrast in ranks work great or entirely unknown-to-each-other folks.

Dial the phone numbers of two other co-workers you wish to “surprise”. On the ring, hold the phones together, speaker to microphone, so that one of the phones can hear the other and vice versa.

Don’t interfere, don’t do anything, the “callers” will do all the acting. If you can, switch of caller ID recognition or use cell phones unknown to the internal phone network.

You can even do this in private among friends and family. Record the whole thing for later use (at parties for example). You might even catch some really nasty stuff. Go for the most fun experience setting up the boss with a couple of suck-up’s on a Friday night or Monday morning.

Better even right before an important meeting. In that case make sure, you’re not invited. In fact, you might want to make sure not to see the prank victims for a while or your mimicry might give away too much.

If someone tells on you: good luck for a new job. But hey, THAT prank should really be worth it. And who knows: you might have recorded something that saves your butt!

Office computer prank: Virus Alert!

Imitate an official IT department alert email message or black board announcement. State in serious notes that a special virus outbreak compromised the network and is being dealt with.

As a specialty the Trojan is being activated by using the letter “e” from any computer connected to the company network. Advise the office workforce, colleagues, coworkers and friends under no circumstances to use the letter “e”.

Instead everyone should be using letter “u” until notified otherwise.

Can you imaginu what a muss this would cruate if uveronu complius? Vary lutturs for additional fun. If your workplacu umploys Chinusu puoplu you might try “r” instead of “l”. This wourd creat especiarry many roughs if the boss would berong to this group of peopre.

Add a twist by excluding some folks from the prank who will go crazy over this. Printing posters and hang them everywhere but one floor or office area might support this little prank twist nicely as well.

Havu fun praying this workpracu prank and rut us know what othur iduas you triud.

Toilet pranks – Restroom pranks and practical jokes

Bathroom pranks are somewhat delicate yet greatly rewarding as the prank victim might be too embarrassed to seek for support from others. Anyway, it is advised to cover up your tracks or you’re in for some serious trouble or revenge.

Not everyone is cool with restroom pranks. Well, it’s enough if you are we say!

Locking someone up in a cubicle is an old prank really. Locking him/her up with something ugly or disgusting (the boss?) inside the box is funnier. Better even: switch off the light and play with sounds or scares. Maximum fun can be achieved by throwing something over the cubicle sell door in the dark. Water is famous, burning matches are a bit mean but easily detected and extinguished. Condoms can be fun as well (put some white liquid soap inside for some additional association).

Here you might want to go undetected (switching off the light helps, still: run!).

Removing the door knob while someone is “unloading” makes for a good practical joke in the restroom as well. Have a camera ready to fetch the climbing-out exercise.

How about glue on the toilet seat? Itchy powder works well too (those are the ideas where some trouble starts – good lawyers or massive muscles make good arguments).

Rather harmless: in a closed cubicle put two pairs of shoes (one female the other a guy’s) facing each other as if a couple was, you know what…). Fetching surprised faces with a camera could be wonderful office fun on a boring day.

Here is one that is just too cool to miss: at a conference try to snatch a speaker’s microphone to place it switched on inside the men’s room. It might not always work but if it does nobody would forget this one ever again.

The company’s PA system can be used for this too, you might need a friend or two (e.g. technician, admin). Highlight: if you’d ever catch a couple having sex in the cabin (audio, we’d stay away from video for obvious reasons).

Share your restroom prank ideas and stories here. Have fun!

Harmless Draw-On-A-Huge-Guy Prank – Who said harmless?

Ah, the good old permanent marker prank. Only in this example someone went all the way in selecting a prank victim that could turn out, say: a little more reactive, physically.

Say, you always hated that huge, dumb-like-a-sprinkler football player who teases and bullies the entire school and who rules over which girl not even to look at. Understandably you’ve been daydreaming about cruel methods to pay back, neat pranks that might set the record straight once and for all.

This one is as easy as saying 1-2-3. Only, even more quickly you might have to run, depending how fast this moron is going to discover the artful self description at his back. You can easily pull this off at a party or camp, military works as well, only: dissertation with following incarceration might be a bit of a steep price to pay for a prank. Your call.

Getting the dumb bag wasted shouldn’t be the issue really. Morphine or any other suitable drug in his drink if anti-alcoholic might work as well. A guy that size though might need a serious overdose. Strapping him down during the act, just in case, might be wise advice.

On second thought: if you need to fear for him to wake up while being marked, you might just as well fear for life or set him ablaze when wakening unexpectedly. Copy is up to you or your team really.

Make sure not to give away too much of yourself in terms of handwriting recognition and associated content. “You asshole stole my girl last week” or “instead of shitting in your face after you dropped that piano on my head, moron” are not real good ideas.

But then again: “actio = reactio”.

Report your success and ideas here. Your injuries will be welcome too. Have fun (while you can).
