Slashed Car Tires

Introduction: Slashed Car Tires

Slash your friends tires without causing any damage.

Slash is a musician best known for lead guitar for Guns N' Roses. His wild hair and iconic top hat make him really easy to spot and make his image instantly recognizable. By sticking Slash's picture on car or bike tires you can "slash" someone's ride and give them a scare when you rush up to them and tell them "your tires have been slashed!". This safe and fun prank is easy to do.

Step 1: Source Pictures

I did an image search for "slash", then chose a few of the best large image sized pictures. Printing on black and white means I was looking for image that had high contrast and were mostly desaturated.

Step 2: Print

I printed the images out as large as possible on my printer.

Step 3: Tape

I used clear packing tape to stick the printouts of Slash on the company van.

Step 4: Send Email

The tires I "slashed" was a communal work vehicle. So, I sent an email to the owner and told him I thought the tires were slashed and he should go check it out.

After sending the email I went and hid nearby the van to watch his reaction.

Step 5: Pranked!

Hide nearby and watch the confused look on your victim's face, then laugh as they make the connection of who is printed out on their car tires.

Happy pranksgiving!

    I don't want to be seen a a pedant, but you haven't 'slashed' any tyre. You have 'slashed' a wheel, which makes no sense and isn't funny...

    I normally despise April Fools day pranks, most of them are mean, and nasty - nothing to laugh about. This one is really funny (at least it was once you explained who Slash was.)

    If you want to do this to someone who does not know about Slash, or Guns-N-Roses (like me,) you may want to use a picture with his name on it.

    This made me laugh more than it should have. It reminds me of when a co-worker and I would go taping pictures of Bon Jovi on the "Slippery When Wet" signs around the office. Great stuff!
