There are a variety of reasons why fans of The Office enjoy the show. There are lively characters, crisp writing, and excellent improv, to name a few highlights. However, one aspect of the show that has always stood out to fans is the connections that the characters are able to develop throughout the nine seasons of the show.
The bond between Jim and Dwight, in particular, is one that spectators adore to witness. Fans of The Office like seeing the rivals pull pranks on one another and occasionally offer one other encouragement and support.
Try these hilarious pranks the next time you come into your office and share some laughs with your coworkers!
Encase your coworker’s favorite stapler (or stationery!) in Jell-O.
It is in the pilot episode when the characters of Dunder Mifflin are first introduced, and Jim’s penchant for pranking is on full show when he steals Dwight’s stapler and uses Jell-O to encase it in.
It’s simple, effective, and it’s not the first time he’s done it, as Dwight notices instantly and yells at Jim, asking why he continues doing this to him. Jim responds by asking why he keeps doing this to him. The prank, even more, amuses Michael, and Jim also decides to put Micheal’s mug in Jell-O at the end of the first episode of the show.
Watch this on the Season 1 Pilot Episode.
Now, you may get creative and encase other things apart from the stapler. It can also be your coworker’s favorite pen!
But it would help if you always remembered to make an effort to avoid crossing the line between being humorous and being nasty, as is the case with all pranks. Electronics and important papers should not be placed in the Jell-O since they could be harmed.
Dress and act like one of your coworkers.
Unlike his typical outfit, Jim comes into the office with his hair styled differently and glasses on his face, which sets him apart from the other employees. In a matter of seconds, Dwight and the viewer understand that Jim is dressed exactly like Dwight, and he even brings out identical figures and bobbleheads that Dwight keeps on his desk.
Watch this on the Season 3 Product Recall Episode.
To achieve this, you simply choose a coworker to impersonate and arrive at the office dressed in a similar manner. Keep in mind that you must commit to the character and participate in their odd little eccentricities as well!
Put 15 large pizza orders under one of your coworker’s names.
Consider this prank, which everyone in your office will almost certainly find amusing: choose a coworker and then buy 15 huge pizzas in their honor. When the pizzas are delivered, and the delivery person calls out that person’s name, they will be completely baffled and possibly a little embarrassed. Nevertheless, there will be pizza afterward, at the very least!
If you do not have any idea what pizza you will order, you may try these Papa John’s pizza recommendations.
Gift wrap everything!
Jim’s increasingly obvious gift of wrapping paper for Dwight’s chair and desk, as well as the items on it, was actually his replacement of the chair and desk with a Christmas-wrapped cardboard imitation of the desk and an exceedingly loosely built chair. It became apparent when Dwight attempted to sit, and the entire structure fell.
Watch this on the Season 5 Moroccan Christmas Episode.
A fair reminder that if you do this, be sure to prepare a ton of gift wrap to make the structure more believable! You’ll also likely have to go to work really early to prepare for this prank.
Jim stuffed meatballs into the back of Dwight’s chair, and he also stuffed meatballs into the desk drawers and wrapped his stapler in a meatball. This turned out to be a plot by Dwight and Stanley to deceive Jim into providing them with free meatballs, which they were successful in doing.
Watch this on the Season 8 Pool Party Episode.
Now, we know that it may be challenging to obtain meatballs that would fill your coworker’s desk drawers. But, do not worry! *wink wink*
You may opt to use glitters instead. This way, you can fill the desk drawers without much sweat and still have a great reaction from your coworker.
There is a possibility that the cited hilarious pranks will require more than several minutes of preparation, and a prank call might be your best option.
