Visitors to a Quebec area Tim Hortons were greeted with a rather odd sight recently. Rather than the normal red and beige exterior, the location was completely blacked out. Even cars in the parking lot had gotten the treatment. But why would Tim Hortons prank their customers?
It seems the practical joke was all part of a campaign to stir up buzz for the launch of their new Dark blend. The prank, part of the #TimsDark campaign, used real customers who were not in on the joke. Curious passersby looking for a cup of coffee were greeted with an equally blacked out interior set up with night vision cameras. They were allowed to stumble around a bit before mercifully the lights were turned on and they were let in on the joke. Watch the video below to see their reactions.
Kids are naturally inquisitive and while that may help with instilling in them a desire to learn and such, it can also… let’s be honest, make them some of the nosiest little people alive. When some neighborhood kids got a little too fond of peeping in this reddit user‘s house, they got their revenge with this funny mail slot prank. I think it’s safe to say that the children of this neighborhood will be a little more respectful of everyone’s privacy from now on.
