The “Mariachi-Gram”

I really enjoyed this one! Basically, one day my senior year, at the end of my 2nd period math class, I convinced my teacher to let me out of class early, and then I went and met up with my sneaky bro Alex Beans! We quickly got dressed up like a Mariachi band and then proceeded to interrupt other classes by walking into unsuspecting classrooms and stating “this is a mariachi-gram from the Spanish department!” and then playing some trumpet and guitar for them and singing “Taco Nacho Burrito! Uno Dos Tres! Feliz Navidad! Other Spanish words!”

Then we would run out and into another room, and another, and another!

The whole time nobody stopped us! An administrator even saw us, but it was as if they thought what we were doing was so odd, it had to have been a sanctioned thing… because who would do that?

Me and Beans… that’s who would do that!

The Wrong House

In the heat of prom season (march), Steve F, Derek K and I would go around to random houses with an acoustic guitar and a sign that says “PROM?” and knock on the door and begin to play in the center of the yard. Then, when someone answers the door we would ask them to “get Jennifer!”

They then awkwardly break the news to us that “No one named Jennifer lives here, you have the wrong house” to which we would reply something like “Aww dang are you sure?”

Then we would stop and turn around and say
“Guys! It’s not this house either! This is like the fifth house!… Okay, thanks, sorry!” and then pile back into the car and drive off.

The Parrot

 

This is one of my all-time favorites! Basically we had these fake parrots from some old pirate costumes just sitting around in our basement collecting dust… So me and my brother decided why not do something fun with them and zip-tie one of them to a tree branch near a busy road where its visible (but not too visible)!?! So that’s exactly what we did!

We positioned it in just the perfect spot right near the first roundabout in Hebron, carefully positioned so that when people would drive by and see it, they would think “wow! Look! It’s a parrot!” but could never get a close enough look because of the angle of the tree to the road, so as not to give away its lifeless nature. Then they would see it sitting there again when they drove by the next day and the next day and the next! :D

Since then, we’ve put up several more parrots in several different places, but this one was the first and probably best placed one. It always gets a laugh out of people when we tell them that it was us that put it there!

…Oh, and I believe it’s still up there xP
