Looking for the best April Fools Day office pranks and practical jokes? Here you’ll find a few great ideas for April Fools Day pranks from YouTube, from some of the ingenuous practical jokes Jim has played on Dwight from ‘The Office’ to pranks gone wrong and the best coworker cubicle redecorating practical jokes. So if you have coworkers you want to get back at on April Fools Day, get inspired by these hilarious practical jokes:
‘The Office’ Practical Jokes on Dwight – Most practical jokes from ‘The Office’ would be rather hard to play on your coworkers for April Fools Day, but they’re still fun to watch. Here’s a video from YouTube of a collection of Jim’s best pranks pulled on Dwight, including a hilarious take on identity theft. You’ve got to love the classic desk-in-the-bathroom trick, which Dwight takes in stride, reminding Kevin to wash his hands, but out of all the practical jokes showcased, putting his office supplies in the vending machine is my favorite. Of course it would be difficult to pull off a lot of these pranks for April Fools Day, but you could always go for another classic from ‘The Office’: the hilarious Jell-O stapler practical joke (just don’t get confused and try to put staples in some Jell-O and serve it to your coworkers; that is an example of a bad April Fools Day prank).
Copier Prank Gone Wrong – Speaking of bad April Fools Day office pranks, here’s another one that you should never try, especially if there’s a security camera in the copy room and you weigh over 200 pounds. Sure it seems hilarious to Xerox your buttocks and leave the copy for the next person that uses the copy machine to see (so they can then ponder over why a coworker wanted copies of hairy cottage cheese), but this video proves that it’s not always such a good idea. So this is one of the April Fools Day office pranks here that you should attempt at your own risk, and one that could come with a pretty hefty price tag and an embarrassing emergency room visit.
Pretty Pretty Princess Prank – There are some pranks on YouTube that might take way too much time to attempt on April Fools Day, and this is one of them. But if your boss happens to be taking a vacation for a week or more, get to work covering everything in his office in pink; putting pictures of the Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana on his desk; and plastering Disney princesses everywhere. And if you’re too lazy to go through so much trouble for office April Fools Day pranks, just check out the video here and get busy wrapping your boss’s phone with rubber bands before he/she gets to work on April Fools Day.
Cubicle Pranks – There are plenty of great cubicle redecorating pranks on the web that would make perfect April Fools Day practical jokes, including filling them with packing peanuts, balloons, or wadded paper; covering everything in post-it notes; wrapping everything in tin foil; boxing up everything and wrapping it with wrapping paper; or redecorating everything (a la the princess prank above). But this video shows the ultimate cubicle reconstruction, a rather expensive endeavor that takes time, manpower, and plenty of lumber. However, the result is one of the best cubicle practical jokes for April Fools Day you could ever pull, and I don’t think I’d want to give up my office playhouse if I was the guy getting pranked.
Broken Desktop Prank – For those of you who like to pull computer related pranks on your coworkers for April Fools Day and have already gone the scary maze route, try this annoyingly hilarious prank. Basically you’re hiding all the icons on a coworker’s desktop and replacing it with a screenshot of their desktop so that they just won’t be able to figure out why nothing on it is working. It’s one of the easier office April Fools Day pranks here to pull, and you can see step-by-step instructions on how to accomplish it here.
So hopefully these great office April Fools Day pranks will inspire you to pull some great practical jokes on your coworkers; just be sure to capture the results on video if you do.
