One of the most dreaded days of the year is almost upon us. April Fools Day. Everyone will no doubt be on edge for the entire day, and paranoia will be at an all time high. For the day that’s in it, it’s almost impossible to pull off a good prank because EVERYONE is expecting it. But, we’ve compiled a list of subtle but fool-proof pranks that are guaranteed to shock!
1. Toothpaste Oreos
Unbelievably cruel, but so worth the reaction you’ll get! Realistically, no one would think you’d go through this much effort. They won’t suspect a thing... mwahaha
2. Autocorrect Shortcut
Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Add New Shortcut
Change the word ‘no’ to any rude word of your preference. Watch the mayhem unfold.
3. The Honking Door
This one is not for the faint hearted!! Sellotape an air horn to the wall in-line with the door handle, so when someone walks in they’ll jump out of their skin. Brownie points if you can make it happen just as they get out of bed. Maximum impact is key!!
This is also a good one for the office. Guaranteed to scare more than one person at a time!
4. The Obstacle Course
This one is just plain mean. Fill someone’s bedroom/office with plastic cups of water. This prank is quite time consuming, but it’ll worth it to watch the victim freak out. There’s no way about it other than to either drink enough cups of water to walk through, or just accept your fate and knock them over. It’s evil on another level.
5. The Cling-film Car
Old reliable, but it never fails.
“Oh don’t worry, I didn’t want to be on time for work anyway”
6. A Mouthful of Ketchup
This one speaks for itself.
7. Flour in the Hairdryer
Perfect way start to the day. Juuust perfect. If you’re doing this to your girlfriend, prepare to feel the cold shoulder for at least a week. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
8. The Sheet Technique
Only do this if you don’t plan on staying in this hotel. Ever. Again.
9. The Voice Activated Coffee Machine
Pure genius and very little effort required. Go into a café/garage, stick this sign on the coffee machine, and watch people make total idiots of themselves as you watch from afar. Let's be realistic, if it's early in the morning they won't even remember their own name, let alone that it's April Fools Day.
So much potential. There's no excuse now not to take part in this wonderful day! Happy pranking!!
