This is the perfect prank! It is easy to make, easy to set up, and if done correctly, will always work, at least for a few seconds.
The prank works by making your prankee think that his mouse is broken when it's not!
Basically the image below describes the whole prank; however I will describe it step by step.
NOTE: You'll have to forgive me but I'm not able to save image notes so I'll just write them down
In this picture:
A pranked mouse flipped upside down to reveal my awesome hand-drawn trollface! (nope, my printer didn't work)
Step 1: What You Need
- A person to prank (duh)
- Person above needs to have a mouse
- Paper (pdf is A4)
In the picture:
A mouse, must be laser type
My hand-drawn trollface
The pen I used
Random clutter (LOL)
Step 2: Preparation
Anyway print out the trollfaces and cut them out. You can give other uses to the rest of the trollfaces.
grab your tape and put two small pieces on the edges of the trollface, with the face upwards.
Now you're ready to prank your victim!
Step 3: Application
Grab his mouse and stick the trollface on top of the little hole where the light and sensor are. Put the mouse back and make sure the tape is not visible!
Leave your victims office but stay in an efficient line of sight to enjoy your prank.
In the images:
First you see a trollface stuck on the mouse underside.
Second, the same mouse, flipped, and the trollface is not visible!
Step 4: Enjoy!
The average reaction will be:
Your victim sits down, puts his hand on the mouse and moves it. The pointer doesn't move. He'll move the mouse vigorously, maybe even tap it on the table. Then he will pick up the mouse and look under it, only to see an ugly trollface! He'll look around, trying to find YOU, and then remove the trollface, crumple it, and throw it into the trash bin. Finally, he will utter some mean words that you're glad you didn't hear...
