5 Harmless Car Pranks to Play on Your Best Friend

Our cars are some of our most valuable treasures. For some people more than others.

Whether you spend $1,000 dollars, $100,000, or anywhere in between, there’s a special bond that forms between you and your car.

You rely on it. You spend time in it. Some people, up to 40%, even name their cars.

Therefore, what better way to mess with your friend than to mess with their car?

Check out these 5 classic and harmless car pranks!

1. Wrap It

One of the most common car pranks is the “sealed for freshness” saran wrap. However, it deserves its popularity. Wrapping a car in saran wrap will make it impossible to get into without some serious work and it’s completely safe and harmless.

However, saran wrap is not your only option for the classic car wrap. If keeping it fresh is your top priority, you can also use aluminum foil.

If flare and pizzazz is more your style, you can use Christmas or birthday wrapping paper. Don’t forget the bow!

2. Sticker It

Another best among harmless car pranks is the sticky note approach. Sticky notes have a non-damaging adhesive safe for all surfaces.

This method allows you to be quite creative and artistic, too. With the wide variety of stick note colors, the sky is your limit.

You can give your friend the “paint job” they’ve always wanted, or the one you’ve always wanted them to have. Do they need racing stripes? Perhaps some pink tires? It’s up to you now!

While we’re on the topic of stickers, why not a custom bumper sticker?

Companies like allow you to create your own bumper sticker and order as many as you want for a super low cost.

Think about it. Doesn’t your buddy’s macho truck need 100 pink bumper stickers proclaiming his love for kitties? It does.

3. “Sell” It

If you want other people in on your car prank (even if they don’t know it), put your friend’s car up for sale.

You can post it on Craigslist, Facebook, or even put up a sign on their car. People will be calling your friend, inquiring about their car and they will have no idea what’s going on.

Make sure it’s priced to sell though, you want lots of interested buyers!

4. Hit and Run It

One of the funniest car pranks, especially if your friend happens to be OCD about their car, is the hit and run prank.

All you have to do is leave a vague note left by a careless driver about accidentally bumping into your friend’s car. Be sure not to give away where it was hit, though, you want them searching for the “damage” for a while.

It also helps if you mention in the note that the driver doesn’t have insurance and is only writing the note because there were witnesses.

Finally, as your friend starts to realize there might not be any visible damage, point out a random area and swear you can see scratches there.

5. Fill It

Last but certainly not least of all car pranks is the “stuffed” prank.

There are limitless options of what media to use for this masterpiece, but balloons, shredded paper, ping-pong balls, and packing peanuts are popular choices.

The goal is simple, fill your friend’s car to the brim with whatever you choose. They will have no idea what to do with all of it and won’t even be able to drive anywhere!
