Prank 36: Walled In

Alright ladies and gentlemen... for those of you with an incredibly relaxed office whose managers and coworkers all have a great sense of humor, the following office prank may be the perfect thing for a Monday morning. Let me stress that this prank should only be attempted if you know that you won't get in trouble - meaning you had better get approval by some higher ups first.

Requirements:

  • Time (medium) - you're going to be building a wall, or at least highering somebody to build a wall, this takes time.
  • Cost (high) - to make a really convincing wall, you're going to want to get the right materials and probably higher somebody who knows what they're doing.
  • Risk (high) - as I mentioned earlier, you had better get some approval beforehand because you'll not only be wasting many people's time, you'll also be modifying the layout of your office temorarily.

Steps:

  1. Choose a hallway or office you want to block off with a wall.
  2. Hire somebody who knows what they are doing (or pick up a "Walling Up an Office Hallway for Dummies" book) and get a new wall built.
  3. Put plants, paintings, drinking fountains, and any other objects you can think of around the new wall to make it look more permanent.

Result:

For the best results, you should definitely wall up a hallway that is the route to multiple offices, as you'll be able to get the reaction of many more victims. If you're looking for a less distracting and perhaps easier prank, you could just wall up an existing office by turning a door into a fake wall. Hopefully you'll get some great reactions as your victims first wonder if they've made a wrong turn, then try to figure out if they've been moved and/or even fired.

Below is the video inspiration for this post that will hopefully give you a better idea of what you can pull off.
