Sorry, I rushed submitting this to Instructables. One of our co-workers took a week off of work, and we had been playing pranks on each other for months. Whenever someone had left on vacation, we would either cover their desk in tape, toilet paper, or whatever we could find. Right before this prank, instead of trashing his desk, we really cleaned up his desk. Well as a final and grand prank, we decided to take 5 days to cover his entire desk with aluminum foil. (and no we did not do this during work hours, what kind of employee would I be if I did that : ) The office stayed "as is" for a few days and everything was fully functional. Then he started going (mentally) crazy with all of the reflections and tore it all down. The foil ended up as huge foil balls.

Thanks for the idea. I'll have 3 months to do my co-worker's desk while she is on maternity leave. I can't wait.

How bored were you?

WillPine4Fjord (author)2009-06-02

makes my fillings hurt just looking at it

Metal Crave (author)2009-04-21

This is awesome. It must have taken many hours to complete. What did the boss/supervisor have to say? I especially like the keyboard & phone, could you type with them??

karossii (author)2009-04-01

is that a riding crop on the corner of the desk?

JKibs95 (author)karossii2009-04-19

Thought it was a cane.

King Crab (author)karossii2009-04-13

Yeah, it looks like a horse whip.

jeff-o (author)karossii2009-04-01

I thought it was a golf putter...

wow that better than the peep circus my friend found on his desk at work

One teacher I knew took a vacation, and while he was gone, his coworkers created hollywood type cobwebs all over his desk by diluting rubber cement with bestine, and spraying it all over his desk. It ended up looking like no one except a few hundred spiders, had touched it for five years.

8bit (author)thepelton2009-04-01

Wow, I would love to see the results of that! Any images? What did you use to spray it? What porportions were they in?

thepelton (author)8bit2009-04-03

The rubber cement was diluted with Bestine, and shot through an airbrush. I didn't do it myself, I just heard about it after the fact. I suppose you just mix in enough Bestine to liquefy it. It's standard Horror Movie cobwebs, and relatively harmless.

Please clarify - did you take a vacation from work and your office mates did this to your desk, or did you take a vacation at work (as you state) and did this instead of going to Iceland or Disney or some other vacation spot? It's cool either way but it's unclear if you did it or not.

me (author)Ninzerbean2009-04-02

or did one of your office mates take a vacation, and you did this to his workplace?

tater killer (author)2009-04-02

what the static charge on that thing

robert.a.scheffler (author)2009-04-01

It looks like this took a long time to complete. Did you do it during work hours? If so, looks like a fun place to work & you must have a lot of free time...and do you have any openings? :-)

Kozz (author)2009-04-01

That's great stuff! I hope the aluminum was recycled afterward. :)

mohnkern (author)Kozz2009-04-01

Wow, that's just an amazing piece of work, I hope his co-workers appreciated it.
