Pranking 101: Mouse Trap Prank

Aug 20, 2021

A mouse trap prank is a classic. It's one of the simplest and most effective pranks you can do to really get someone going. Pranking 101 is back with another installment and this time, we’re all about mouse trap prank ideas! This ultimate guide will show you how to make your own and also how to set it up so once you’re in the pranking zone, your friends or family will surely be in for a treat!

But first, have you ever wondered when and why did mouse traps came into existence? If yes, don’t worry because everyone here at Ownage Pranks does, too! With that, we looked at the early days of mouse traps and found out that it was because of the pesky nature of rodents that drove humans into inventing such an evil device. Humans believed that co-existing with rodents could pose health risks and can even damage their households. In that case, we can’t blame them for actually obsessing in finding a way to easily kill those creatures for centuries.

Probably the most common mouse trap to have ever existed, the spring-loaded mouse trap, was invented by a man named William C Hooker. The one in the photo above is recognized today as a classic. With that, this mouse trap prank guide from Ownage Pranks will focus on it, sort of like an homage. Fun, right?! 

Hold up

Just like any other Pranking 101, you have to step back a little and take note of these things first:

Take note of the pranking mood

To make sure we are not the "irresponsible and careless prankster," use this prank-o-meter to measure your victim's mood. Remember: a good prank is sensitive. Take note of your surroundings before proceeding with any joke or trickery—worst case scenario could be an unhappy potential recipient who might not see the humor in what seems like harmless fun. Best case, you get the reaction you’re aiming for: it could range from no reaction, which is great for a silent but deadly trick, up through yelling in panic because they thought it was real!

Buy only prank-grade mouse traps

There are harmless mouse traps that are made merely for prank purposes and there are those *actual* ones at the other end of the spectrum. Before you buy mouse traps, make sure that you’re purchasing those that are harmless. Stay away from the dangerous ones and look for cheap and fun alternatives. Don’t get yourself in trouble!

Find the right time

Timing is one of the crucial things you should consider when deciding to prank other people. For instance, if they are under a lot of stress in their life and have just lost all hope after some terrible event like losing a family member or pet dog days ago, it's best not to make them feel even worse by pulling off your seemingly harmless joke at that time! Remember: they may be on the wrong side of bed this morning!

Check if your prank victim is present

For a mouse prank to work, you have to make sure that your victim is home. So if you want it to go smoothly and get some laughs out of this one—make sure your friends or family members are around when they’re supposed to be at home watching TV eating ice cream on their couch (or whatever). It also never hurts having an accomplice from either party involved just so we can know whether our victims are there or not.

And if no one’s available for a mouse trap prank

If your prank victim is not available and you really are in the mood for some pranking session. You can try Ownage Pranks’ spoof call app! It is available for download whether you’re on iOS or Android. Our spoof call app works by hiding your caller ID, making it seem like you’re calling or texting from a different number. Talk about the endless possibilities you can do with it! And oh, did we tell you that it’s for FREE? Go ahead and give it a shot.

Ultimate Mouse Prank Guide

Mouse Prank Toy

First off on our list is this mouse prank toy you can find at your local novelty shop or at online sites. You might want to consider buying this to save you the hassle of actually making one yourself.

DIY Mouse Trap 

If you’re on a budget but still want to pull a mouse trap prank on your neighbor, we have here a tutorial on how you can make your OWN do-it-yourself mouse trap that will cost you less than three dollars. Alright, put on your crafting gear and take note of these steps: 

  1. Prepare your materials. First, buy a mouse trap and a toy mouse at a dollar store.

  2. Take the toy mouse and cut a slit behind its ears to make the mouse trap sit in better at the toy mouse.

  3. Put the mouse’s head inside the mouse trap to make it seem like it got caught.

  4. Add some splatter of red paint to make it a little gory. Remember to make it look really believable so you can make your prank victim REALLY scared.

  5. Put it somewhere your prank victim can easily see and watch as they scream their lungs out in fear!

  6. Pro-tip: make sure you have a hidden camera set up so you can record your prank victim’s reaction

Thousand Mouse Traps Prank

If you have a lot of money to spare and decide to go ALL OUT for your next mouse trap prank, you might want to consider doing a thousand mouse traps prank. This has been all over the internet because famous content creators have been doing this for quite some time now to prank their SO/best friend/brother/sister or any unsuspecting victim they have. For this, you need to buy a LOT (and when we say a lot, we mean a LOT), like how much this prankster did as shown on the photo below:

Once you already have the abundance of mouse traps, the possibilities are endless! For starters, you can prank your pal by placing a lot of mouse traps around his/her bed so that when they wake up, they will be surprised that they’re surrounded by an army of mouse traps and that one missed step could lead to them being zapped by it. Another prank idea we can give you is if you want to really take it a step further, place a bunch of mouse traps around your house’s front door so that the next time someone enters, they will be shocked to find out that they cannot pass through the hall because of the mouse traps you placed around it. We told you: the possibilities are endless and all you have to have is a creative and brilliant pranking mind!

And that was it for Ownage Pranks’ Pranking 101: Mouse Trap Prank! Before you do all these crazy ideas, you have to keep in mind that although we want to have a fun time with our friends, we also want to prank responsibly. Always make sure to put your prank victim’s safety on top of everything. As always, happy pranking, prankster!
