The Hebron Scavenger Hunt

Seeing as this is the week of April Fools, I’m posting one of my most favorite pranks that I’ve done! I did this one my senior year, and I had actually almost forgot about it!

Essentially I made a gag scavenger hunt in Hebron just to see if I could get people to do it!
It had three parts, one beginning clue, middle clue and end clue, just so I could tell if someone had actually done it by seeing if multiple clues were moved.

The beginning clue was phrased as if it were one of the last clues of some larger scavenger hunt, this way our prankee would stumble upon it and would be instantly bound in mystery and keep them interested.  I hid at least 7 of these things all around Hebron! I know I hid one in the microwave at Remkees, taped under a table at Wendy’s, on a bathroom door,

taped to a phone outside of UDF,

under some candy at UDF,
CAM00192
and on a paper towel dispenser at the Crew Lounge Bar!

This clue led to the second clue, which I hid near the Hebron roundabouts in a plastic bag.

Which said:

This one was removed twice, along with the third clue, meaning people definitely took the bait! :D

The final clue, which really wasn’t much of a clue, really more of a let down for the prankee, was at the Hebron Lents branch Library (Rest In Peace!). I found the most obscure book I could, one that would probably not be checked out that often… “Collecting Pens: The Instant Expert”

This clue read “Sorry, this wasn’t part of a real scavenger hunt… I just wanted to see if anyone would actually do this… Here’s some stickers though for your effort.” And then I had power rangers stickers there, which the first person took, so  I replaced those with Obese Cat stickers (doesn’t everyone have some Obese Cat stickers laying around?).CAM00183 CAM00203

But yeah, so at least 2 people did this scavenger hunt! I really wish I was able to see them do it! I would love to have just causally struck up a conversation with them about what they were doing, acting as if I knew nothing about it, that would have been interesting!

enjoy your April fools day, Get creative and Prank on!

 

“Coco” the Gorilla and the Taco Bell DriveThru

Senior year of high school Jeremy R. and I realized that we still had not done anything stupid to the new Taco Bell drive thru that had just gone in down the street from our high school! So we decided to change that and of course incorporate the gorilla suit (a classic for every gag or prank!). I think Coco and me made at least 4 people’s day with that visit! The noisy little guy really wanted his nachos!

“NO COCO! BEHAVE!”

*unruly ape-like behavior ensues*

“BAD COCO! THIS IS WHY I DON’T TAKE YOU OUT IN PUBLIC!”

*coco begins throwing a tantrum*

“OKAY THAT’S IT! YOUR GOING BACK IN YOUR KENNEL WHEN WE GET HOME!”

*sad whooping gorilla noises*

(turns to drive thru attendant)
“I am so sorry, hes not usually like this. He’s usually much better! He just really needs his nachos!”

*attendant laughs and hands me food*
“Thank you!”

*Coco swats at food as I begin to pull away*

“THAT’S IT MISTER! YOUR GOING BACK TO THE ZOO!”

*more gorilla whooping*

The Dart Gun Drive-By

Armed with several Nerf automatics and enough foam to fill a small couch, Me, Beans and Jeremy put the squeeze on a few local businesses! We Darted up McDonald’s and the Kroger parking lot, not one of our cart-pushing high school friends were spared!….

And they were nice enough to help us pick up the darts afterwords! lol :)

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
