Happy April Fools! We all need a good laugh, especially during this time of high stress and anxiety about finals, registration, etc. Here are some April Fools pranks that you can use on whoever you want. Just make sure they have a sense of humor!


Make sure your roommate likes bugs, because this one will definitely make their skin crawl. With this horrible yet hilarious prank, get some black paper, cut out the outline of an insect, and tape it to the inside of the lamp to give the illusion of a bug inside the lamp.

  1. LOUD AF

In this simple yet effective prank, all you have to do is turn up the volume on any device that belongs to your victim and watch their reactions. Hopefully they won’t be deaf after this one.


This April Fools classic is also very simple. Get some Vaseline, apply it to a doorknob and watch your victim struggle to open the door. Although, you may not want to let them in, considering how mad they’ll probably be at you.


Google originally posted an ad that was based on Pokémon games. The ad said that they needed “the best Pokémon trainers” to go out and map locations and destinations for Google. This seemingly harmful joke eventually led to the popular game Pokémon GO!, resulting in millions of players.


This scary yet effective toy is one probably more suited for Halloween, but a prank nonetheless. Post this scary guy in someone’s window or car, and watch them freak out! Maybe next time they’ll remember to lock their doors.

Please remember: At the end of the day, it is just a prank and ALL IN GOOD FUN. Do not go over the top and don’t hold grudges. Instead, just enjoy the reactions and forget about it
