It's a little-known fact that car enthusiasts have notoriously bad senses of humor. Kidding, kidding. But if you know a car lover and you've got a gift for the giggles, consider April Fool's Day to be your newest playground. Whether you love cars or love someone who loves cars (or maybe you just want to pull some auto pranks around the office or at home), here are 10 great April Fool's pranks for the jokester and car lover in (or around) you.
PS. People love their cars....if you damage them the least you can expect is some serious revenge on you and at the worst an a$$ kicking, so be careful who you prank!
Step 1: Wrapp'd!
If you're a drunk college kid, or just one on the inside, wrapping someone's car is a great April Fool's gag. Especially if you're friends or lovers with a persnickety automotive purist, gift wrapping, shrink wrapping, or Saran wrapping is a way to play a joke that shouldn't ruffle too many feathers.
Just gain access to the car (you don't need the keys for this one) late at night, and proceed to wrap at your leisure. It's like wrapping a house, only with less clean up. And you should use something more sinister than toilet paper. Be liberal in your application of the Saran wrap — the harder it is for them to clean up, the longer you have to point and laugh.
Step 2: Post-It! (on their car!)
It's no stapler in a Jell-O mold, but you can use office supplies for this fun trick. Try putting Post-Its all over the car. Everywhere. Even coat the undercarriage. As long as it takes you to put them on is nothing compared to the fun you'll have watching your driver have to take them off.
Bonus points for fun shapes, or writing a message with differently colored Post-Its. Minus points for using Silly String instead of stickies — you're (hopefully) not in fourth grade anymore.
