I’ll be honest with you, I’m probably the easiest person to prank like – ever.
I don’t know why. Maybe I’m just too darn gullible – and it certainly doesn’t help that I’m the youngest in my family – but the point is that, in my life, I’ve been pranked a lot. So, instead of woefully lamenting over this fact, I’ve decided to accept my fate and use all the experience for a greater, more fulfilling purpose.
AKA. I just want other people to suffer in the same ways that I have.
So, below, you will find ten of the most hilarious pranks that most – if not all – of your friends, housemates and co-workers are guaranteed to fall for. You’re welcome.
Bugs In The Lamp Prank
If you have a friend or housemate that’s really freaked out by creepy-crawlies, then this might be the perfect prank for them. Cut the silhouettes of a few insects out from some dark paper and stick them on the inside of a lamp shade at night – preferably when your friend or housemate is just getting back from work or class. As soon as they turn the lamp on, the shadow of the silhouetted insect will show through the shade and, then all you’ll have to do is wait for them to realise. Brilliant.

Food Coloring In The Toothpaste Prank
Just before your friend or housemate goes to brush their teeth in the morning, creep into the bathroom and squirt some food colouring into their toothpaste. Pick a bright colour, like pink, green or red. When you’re done squirting the colouring inside the tube (you don’t need a lot of it), clean up any spills and then close it up. (If your friend is quite the eagle-eyed type, you can top the toothpaste up with a little bit of clean white toothpaste, so it looks normal when they open it up). When they brush their teeth, the food colouring will seep out and temporarily dye their teeth whatever colour you chose. They’ll have to work overtime to get rid of it and will probably be confused AF.

The Inappropriate Message Prank
Go through your friend or housemates phone when it’s unlocked, then check what they’ve saved their mum, dad or siblings as. Pick one (people usually go for the mum), and then save yourself under the same name they’re saved under. Give the phone back to your friend and then proceed to send them some seriously inappropriate text messages. To your friend, these messages will look like their coming from their family member (ie. their mum), and they’ll probably be really freaked out by it.
Leek In The Sink Prank
This one is a classic. Burst into your friend’s (or housemates) room and tell them that the bathroom is flooded. When they ask what happened, explain that there is a leak in the sink. When they go to look at it, they’ll be stunned to find an actual ‘leek’ in the sink. Simple.
Holes In The Cup Prank
This one’s a great one for the people at work. Grab a needle and poke some really tiny holes into the plastic cups in the water cooler machine and then sit back and watch chaos ensue as your co-worker wonder why all their water keeps leaking all out.
This one is good for friends who absolutely hate clowns. Whilst your friend is sleeping, get several printed out images of Pennywise the clown (or any other villain they’re afraid of) and place them inside their drawers and wardrobes. Make sure they’re placed somewhere that will be visible as soon as they open the drawers. When they wake up and start to get dressed, they’ll get the fright of their life when Pennywise is seen staring right back at them early in the morning.
Slashed Tires Prank
Run to your friend or housemate and tell them that you think someone has slashed the tires of their car. When they run outside to see, they’ll find an image of Slash (the lead-guitarist of the rock band Guns and Roses) glued to their tire.
On your friend’s phone, go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Add New Shortcut
Then change “yes” to “no.” (So whenever your friend types ‘yes’, they’re phone will auto-correct it to ‘no’ before they even realise) Or you could choose to get creative with it. Pick the most common words in the English language and change them to some really wild things.
The No-Lather Soap Prank
Paint your friends bar of soap in clear nail polish and let it dry, then put it back. When your friend goes to use it (in the shower or wherever else), they’ll be confused AF because it wont lather up at all.
The Nicholas Cage Prank
NCage is a browser extension that morphs every photo on your friend’s Google Chrome into an image of Nicolas Cage. Literally every image. Pick a time when your friend is away, sneak into their room and grab their laptop or hop onto their computer, then download the browser extension. You’ll have instant success. Wait for your friend to return and relish in their confusion when they open up their internet and find that every image is one of Nicholas Cage.
Unfortunately, however, this extension only works for those using Google Chrome. You can download it here.
