April 1st: the day for pranksters is here!
Back in the day (in the 90s or early 2000s), pulling a prank was pretty simple. We only required a fake lizard made of silicon, a chair and a scaredy cat teacher to get the job done. This simple prank was enough to trigger a wave of laughter in the entire room and we loved it.
Now, people pull April fool pranks less for fun and more for making money. But today, if your prank doesn’t involve a Hollywood makeup staff or running a fake Bugatti and if it doesn’t get over a million YouTube views, your prank is considered pretty “Ringarde!” (We mean “basic” if you didn’t get the “Emily in Paris” reference).
The 2021 April Fools’ Day pranks are meaner and smarter and made with massive budgets. Here are 10 most viral pranks, jokes and harmless fun activities to try this year’s April Fool’s Day.
Imagine stumbling upon your favorite horror movie’s villain in a dark parking area. Of course, you won’t go after them for an autograph. These guys dressed as Chucky, Salander man, and Pennywise while wandering around the city at night is hilarious yet spooky AF!
Telekinetic Coffee Shop Surprise
Imagine it’s early morning and you zombie walk to your local coffee shop for a coffee –only to find that it’s haunted. Well, that’s exactly the reaction of some customers at New York City. Here’s an advice: be careful wherever you go, especially on April Fools’ Day.
Invisible Driver at the Drive Thru
One of the most followed magician-turned-pranksters on YouTube, Magic of Rahat bills pulled a unique prank on drive-thru workers by going all invisible. From making them believe that it’s a skeleton driving a car to pretending that his wallet has caught fire at the time of payment, these pranks are probably Rahat’s best till date.
The Bungee surprise
Some pranks are intended for fun and laughter, but this one is downright outrageous. Imagine you just went off a clip to bungee jump, only to realize that you forgot to take the rope with you. Fortunately, the jumper managed to get back to safety, but we’re damn sure the terror he undoubtedly felt at that time is going to stick with his memory long after he leaves that cliff.
Just imagine going to the loo, only to find a human head inside a toilet. Creepy and gross, right? We don’t understand who exactly is the victim here— the ones who didn’t get to poop or the guy whose head is inside the toilet?
The coffin in the elevator
Halloween or not, these classic scary elevator pranks work every season! But this particular prank took the elevator prank to a whole new level. Filmed in Brazil, the coffin elevator scared the shit out of everyone aboard.
April Fools’ Day isn’t just about scaring your unsuspecting sibling or pulling off the chair from beneath someone as they’re about to rest their butt on it. Some brands and organizations also use this day as an opportunity to trick their customers and create awareness.
