Wait, who is Jeff the Killer?
Creepypasta’s Evil Villain
If you watch gamer YouTubers, you might have seen some of them play a game associated with this character, but “Jeff the Killer” isn’t a video game itself. Instead, Jeff the Killer is a Creepypasta villain that could’ve inspired the creation of these creepy video games, much like the Slender Man. So now you might be wondering, what exactly is Jeff the Killer’s story?
Jeff the Killer has had a rough time, too. According to his backstory posted in Creepypasta, he was a shy teenager and was given a hard time by bullies around the area. When he couldn't seem to take it anymore, it resulted in a very dark fight with some of his bullies, which resulted in Jeff being doused in alcohol and set on fire. Fast forward, Jeff gets home, kills all of his family members, and ends up sneaking into random people's houses and killing them, which he does after saying his catchphrase, “go to sleep.” If you're up for some frightening story - and if you're planning to dress up like him for your next prank session - we suggest you check his full story on Creepypasta.
Creepypasta is a website that is popular among scary stories and horror fiction fans. It was established in 2008 and has produced many of today’s most talked-about horror-related legends, such as The Slender Man and Candle Cove.

Now that we’ve gotten to know Jeff the Killer, it’s time we go through our list of prank ideas, videos, and how-tos in honor of him. But before everything else, here is a list of things you have to take note of before doing any Jeff the Killer prank on anybody:
Check everybody’s prank-o-meter
Not everyone is going to be up for some bit of fun. With that, it is important to take note of everyone’s mood before you pull off a seemingly innocent prank on somebody. Since we’re looking at prank ideas that are creepy, you’re probably good not doing it on someone that has a faint heart. There are videos out there where a prankster does a joke on somebody and his/her prank victim ends up fainting and/or going to the hospital because they weren’t able to take what the prankster thought was just a fun and harmless one. You wouldn’t want to end up in big trouble, would you?
Prepare a bribe if pranks get out of hand
What if you've gone too far? The cruelest (and creepiest) prank ideas have the tendency to affect people's feelings towards us, or worse: they hate us! If ever there is such dilemma with your victims, then don't worry - all hope isn’t lost just yet! One of these methods would involve giving something valuable like baked cookies and lasagna which has been prepared specially by yours truly.
Pranks are time-sensitive
When deciding whether or not to pull off a prank, timing is one of the most crucial factors in play. You don't want your plan to backfire or your victim to have a heart attack because they're going through something tough at home and have had too much caffeine for their own good!

Onto our Jeff the Killer prank ideas, videos, and how-tos!
How to Dress like Jeff the Killer
Dressing up as Jeff the Killer is easy, but becoming one takes a deep internalization of what he really is like. With that, we suggest that you read all about his story first so you can really get into the character. Once you’re done acquainting yourself to Jeff the Killer, all you have to do is to dress up as one so you can effectively scare and pull off your ultimate Jeff the Killer prank on your target victim.
To dress up like him, you’ll be needing a white hoodie, black jeans, a toy knife, a wig that looks like Jeff’s hairstyle, a pair of black sneakers, and a Jeff mask (or if you can’t find any, we highly suggest you ask a friend who’s really good at make-up to transform you into Jeff).

In this video by famous YouTube Content Creator MagicofRahat, he goes and drives around the city looking for a target fast food drive-thrus for his Jeff the Killer prank. He’s seen wearing a very scary, and honestly, legit-looking Jeff the Killer mask while scaring the hell out of the fast food employees he meets. You can see that most of his prank victims were really scared since not only was he able to pull off the entire look, but he was also able to convince them because of his believable acting skills. We won’t spare you any more of the fun details, so we suggest and go ahead and watch the whole skit!
“I showed this to my friend (who loves creepypasta) and she told me "This is who I aspire to be."
“I’d be the only one that would be like “Oh hey Jeff, you look beautiful as ever.” (You’d understand if you’re in the fandom).”
