April Fools Office Pranks

April fool’s day is upon us, and it takes some time to pull of an expert prank. Here are some of our all-time favorites. We expect you to use them!

Take a tip from Github, and do some harmless messing with your coworkers’ computer. Just by adding some CSS definitions in the User Stylesheets folder, you can turn every website upside down, blur the screen every 30 seconds, spin web pages, or flip all web images upside down. It’s a great way to confuse your coworkers! (note: this only works in Chrome browsers)


Does your office have typical desk chairs? Try taping an air horn to the underside of one. When your coworker sits down, (s)he’ll be started by a loud surprise. Just be sure to watch for the reaction!

BSOD – Install the Blue Screen of Death Screensaver and watch your coworkers lose their minds at the thought of losing all their work!

For a more physical prank, try filling your coworker’s office with packing peanuts (or at least make it look that way). Just tape a large piece of paper behind the glass making a small gap, and fill the gap with packing peanuts. The whole room will look overflown with Styrofoam without all the mess and hassle.


If you have access to the outdoors on a regular basis – try this one with Mentos and Diet Coke. Sure everyone knows about this deadly combination, but they’ll never see it coming if you do it right.

OR Take the lazy approach and set up your coworkers to think you’ve prepped a ton of pranks around the office, but actually do nothing! All day they’ll anxiously expect pranks that will never happen.

Whatever you do, we’d love to hear your about your tricky endeavors.

Happy pranking!
