At Concepts, we work hard and play hard. ¬†And sometimes we prank even harder. ¬†So in honor of April Fool’s Day, we thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite Concepts’ pranks.¬† Click here to see what made the top five‚Ä¶
The Office is Closed!
When Collette was returning from a shoot on location, we thought it would be funny to close the office. ¬†Or at least pretend.¬† We hid the cars across the street, shut the lights, and locked the doors.¬† When she showed up, she wasn’t very pleased.¬† But she got a good laugh‚Ä¶eventually.
She’s in Labor!
When Kristy was pregnant and pretty close to popping, she had the idea to fake going into labor in order to mess with a fellow colleague.¬† She went as far to pour water on the floor and yell out, ‚“My water just broke!¬† You have to get me to the hospital.”¬† While the poor guy was running around getting clean towels and pulling the car around, Kristy timed her contractions and worked on her breathing.¬† Gives new meaning to the term false labor.
After a successful shoot, Collette was thrilled with the footage they shot.¬† She couldn’t believe how well the demos came out and how much magic we were able to capture on film ‚Ä¶on a DVC Pro tape, to be specific.¬† (Yeah, this story dates back.)¬† So it would be a shame if that tape, oops!, suddenly ¬†broke.¬† That’s what Collette was led to believe when they handed her an unraveled mess.
Who’s in the Shower?
When you work at a production company, you get used to the random props lying around the office.¬† But sometimes (with the help of some shady characters) those props like to wander into unusual places, like the bathroom shower stall.¬† One prop in particular, a headless mannequin, set up shop in that stall for quite some time and scared the bejesus out of just about everyone.
Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My¬† ¬†
Up here in the boonies, we have bear sightings.¬† Yes, actually bears have been spotted on our property!¬† One afternoon, we caught one sniffing around our dumpster.¬† The boys snapped a quick picture of the bear and then photoshopped themselves into the picture, posting it for all to see and believe.¬† This time the joke was on you! ¬†Hehehe.
Happy April Fool’s to all the fools who love to fool along with us 🙂
