Here at Ownage Pranks, we go by the saying that every single thing in this world can be used as a pranking medium. We also believe that there are things that you didn’t know are great gag tools - only if you’re creative enough. Do you think you have what it takes? Read on our the pilot episode of our newest series, Ordinary Things for Extraordinary Gags, to learn more about the stickiest sticky notes prank, ever!
What are sticky notes for?
The biggest problem with sticky notes (other than their poor adhesiveness) is that everyone assumes they're there for the sole purpose of leaving a message. So when you use them for your own mischievous purposes, it's so satisfying. You can steal someone else's seat by writing your name on a sticky note and sticking it to the chair. Drop old candy wrappers in the trash by sticking them to the inside of the can with a sticky note. When someone spills coffee on themselves, write your phone number on a sticky note and lay it at their feet. The possibilities are endless. That is, as long as you're willing to deal with the consequences when they inevitably find out who's behind all these fun sticky notes pranks.
Sticky notes are often used to help remind people about important tasks, ideas, or information. In the age of the internet, it’s sometimes hard to remember what used to be. Some people might even use them as a funny prank by leaving them in places where they will be discovered. It may seem silly now, but in a time without computers or cell phones, a sticky notes prank could make you and your prank victim’s day.
What are sticky notes?
Did you know that there is a story behind the invention of sticky notes? That's right, they were not always around and it was not always common for people to use them. You know, the little yellow pieces of paper with one word on them. They’ve been around for about 25 years now, and while it might be hard to believe that someone actually invented them, they did. And that person is none other than 3M.
It's not a myth: sticky notes were invented by accident! In 1968, 3M scientist Spencer Silver found himself trying to develop a strong adhesive that would replace the then-common use of pins and tacks. In his experiments, he found that a weak adhesive was created when he mixed two materials together. He named the material "sticky note" and it became an office essential we know and love today.
Sticky Notes are one of the most convenient inventions that came into being in the 1960s. They are often used when you need to write a quick note or leave it for someone else, usually with a date and either in your handwriting or in print. These little pieces of paper can be stuck nearly anywhere - they’re very handy in many situations - especially for a good old sticky notes prank!
All of these pranks require a little bit of work and creativity, but they're super fun and will be sure to get a good laugh out of everyone. But first, you have to take note of these pranking considerations first so you can prank assured that you won’t get tagged as an irresponsible jerk:
Take note of your prank victim’s mood
Sticky note prank ideas are a fun way to prank someone while they're least expecting it. They are always a great way to break the ice with your friends, but it's important to remember that pranking someone who is vulnerable or who doesn't know about the prank can make them feel unsafe.
Timing is crucial
There's a lot that goes into a sticky notes prank, but timing is one of the most important things you have to take note of! You don't want to do it when they're going through something tough at home, or have too much caffeine in their system!
Bribe them when things go out of hand
What if you've gone too far and hurt someone's feelings - or worse, made them hate you? Luckily, there's a way to fix this: it's called a crisis in humor. If you find yourself in this situation, don't worry - you can always give them a pan of freshly baked lasagna or a box of chewy cookies!
If no one is available for the sticky notes prank
In any case your target victim isn’t available or might have gone out for a little while and you really, REALLY, are in the pranking mood, you can leave all the hard work to an automatic prank call app! The way our automatic prank call app works is that it uses advanced AI technology to make it seem like your prank call victim is ACTUALLY talking to a real, live person.
