Maureen Pritchard of Green Bay, WI had the best prank in mind to trick her husband Rob on April Fools’ Day. It would take some planning and plenty of patience, but Maureen was down for the cause. And, after capturing her husband’s reaction on video, the epic joke was well worth the wait!
The Ultimate Prank
For her prank, Maureen had been saving all of the Amazon boxes delivered to her home for six months prior to April 1. She even got empty boxes from her sister and parents. For this trick, she would need all of the boxes she could get. On April Fools’ Day, Maureen set all of these boxes on her front porch while Rob was at work. Her goal was to make it seem like someone went completely totally wild ordering on Amazon. She hoped that Rob would completely freak out, and he totally fell for it.
A Hilarious Reaction
When Rob pulled up to the house, Maureen recorded his reaction from the front window. Before he even pulled into the driveway, Rob saw the boxes and hit the brakes in complete disbelief. He crept up the driveway and even sat in his car for a moment to collect himself. When he got out of the car, he noticed Maureen with her camera and pointed to the boxes in shock. “When he saw me recording out the window, I thought he realized that it was a joke, but when he came inside he kept asking, “What IS all that?!?” Maureen shared on Facebook. “I had to explain that it was 6 months of saved boxes, from us, my parents and my sister!”
Barrel of Laughs
After Maureen shared a picture of the boxes and Rob’s reaction online, it quickly went viral with many people applauding her for the epic prank. “BEST. PRANK. EVER! I only wish I had thought of it! Well played!” Facebook user Elizabeth Griner Ocker commented. Chelsey Seely-Eckenwiler shared with her husband Matthew, “You would probably have a heart attack LOL.”
Since the April Fools’ prank hit the internet, the video has gotten almost 800,000 views. Even people in Maureen and Rob’s neighborhood couldn’t help but stare at all of these boxes. “You have no idea how many people slowed down or stopped in front of our house all day today!” Maureen wrote online. “Anyone need any boxes?!?”
