California-based internet comedian and prankster Jeff Wysaski is shaking the world with laughter again. The genius mind behind the Obvious Plant project spends his time secretly planting fake products and hilarious books in actual stores and bookshops. Reactions from unsuspecting people who stumble upon his humorous items are indeed priceless. Some instantly burst out laughing while others can’t figure out if the item is real or just a prank.
Wysaski started doing his pranks when he planted a series of self-help books with fake covers in different bookshops in West Hollywood. He creates the fake book covers featuring satirical titles and hilarious puns then puts them on used books. Then he discreetly inserts the fake books among the real ones to complete the prank. Most of the times, the hilarious book covers usually confuse those who are looking for a serious book. Over time, customers would point the fake books out to the staff. And that’s how the bookshops became aware of Wysaski’s prank.
Now, the clever prankster is expanding his playground towards real stores, particularly targeting IKEA stores and toy stores. This time, it’s not just hilarious self-help book but he’s now creating fake toys and other humor products. And you can just imagine the confusion and giggles from the shoppers who came across these fake items among the real ones. We’ve compiled the funniest fake products courtesy of Obvious Plant.
