The Great April Fools Prank and Practical Joke List


Great Car Pranks - My Side Window is Broken

Go to an auto parts wrecker and get the cheapest side window you can find. Buy it, then brake it. Sweep up the bits and take to your targets car. Roll down the window and spread the glass on the seat and the ground around the window. Then run and tell your victim that you think something happened to their car.

Great Car Pranks - Sugar not in the Gas Tank

Just sprinkle some sugar around the gas tank opening. For added confusion leave a note with somebody else's name. "Ha ha Steve that will teach you to cut me off in traffic!" No damage
happens with this prank.

Great Car Pranks - The Accident That Didn't Happen

Leave a note on somebody's windshield, "Sorry I smashed into your car. I have gone to the hospital to get my injuries checked out. Call me and we can work out a cash settlement-I don't have any money but maybe I could trade some yard work or something to pay it off. Call me."

Great Car Pranks - Hide the Car Prank

If you can move somebody's car and put it in a different spot from where they originally left it you can cause a great amount of panic. You may need extra keys or a floor jack to achieve this one. Try a different floor of the parking garage or move it over a few feet. This confuses the owner and makes them think they have lost their mind. Best to use this one on April Fools' so that at least you have a reason for the target to lose their mind.

Great Car Pranks - Everything Works

Get inside their car and turn all the controls to the on position in the car. The wipers, the radio, the signal, parking brake, adjust the mirrors, move the seat all the way to the front or back, and turn on the vents (Point them all at the drivers seat on high). Not an evil prank but it will certainly wake them up in the morning. For bonus points set all the preset dials on the radio station to their least favorite station.

Great Car Pranks - Fake Flat Tire

Take some regular balloons and fill them up. Place under the tires so that when the car moves they think they have a major problem. Works best at night. Try to keep them out of site.

Great Car Pranks - The Car is on Fire

Pour a little vegetable oil on the muffler. You may need to crawl underneath the car and use a rag. Huge amounts of smoke will come off the car and cause a very concerned driver. It will smell like a giant french fry. This one is not for the faint of heart and is a huge minus in the environmental department.

Great Car Pranks - Confetti Everywhere

Fill the defroster vents of someone's car with confetti. Be very careful not to spill any so they have no idea what is coming. Put the defroster on full so when they get in the car and turn it on the confetti goes everywhere. A good vacuuming will clear it up.

Great Car Pranks - Poor Gas Mileage

This is more of a month long prank as opposed to a one day April Fools' prank. A couple of firefighters form Florida told us about this one. Start to siphon a gallon or two of gas out of the target's vehicle every day for a couple of weeks and store it in a safe container. Then after they have lost their mind with the poor gas mileage they are receiving start to put the gas back in the targets car every day for a couple of weeks. This is a fantastic mind bender.

Great Car Pranks - Bumper Sticker Trick

Place a rainbow sticker on a homophobic's vehicle. The best thing to do here is if target is a bit of a butthead on a particular view of the world; place a bumper sticker that has the opposite message to their beliefs.

Great Car Pranks - Wake up #2

While going a long car trip and someone falls asleep, make sure to get on a road with no or little cars and come to a screeching halt with everyone else screaming at the top of their lungs. The sleeper will be scared out of their wits.

Great Car Pranks - Messing with Directions

If a friend is writing down directions to get to someone's house, when he is not looking change the directions so he goes somewhere totally different from where he was trying to get in the first place.

Great Car Pranks - Why is the Car Shaking?

Take a small rock and glue it to the tire with epoxy so it looks like they're about to run over it.
