‘Obvious Plant’ Leaves Hilarious Fake Products In Real Stores
There's no better feeling in the world than making somebody laugh. Well, other than making somebody laugh and forcing them to wonder whether what they’re seeing is, in fact, real. Genius prankster Jeff Wysaski, founder of the hilarious Obvious Plant project, is at it again. He hid even more amazing fake toys and other products among real ones, and it should be positively criminal how great they are.
We don’t grow out of toys just because we grow up. Obvious Plant obviously (pun intended) seems to know this and loves putting a satirical twist on things, so our jaws drop with wonder and confusion. Have a look through Obvious Plant’s newest practical jokes, upvote your faves and remember to let everyone know what you think of the project in the comments below! We all know how much everyone loves Obvious Plant’s funny pranks, so here are our previous posts about fake Christmas gifts, animal facts, self-help books, IKEA in-store reviews, and bootleg Avengers.
Wysaski previously did a series of hilarious bookshop pranks, where he planted self-help books with fake covers in West Hollywood. Shoppers were surprised and delighted to find them while they were browsing for something a bit more serious. Unfortunately, Wysaski didn’t write new fake motivational books — he made fake covers and put them on used books. However, we’re sure that Wysaski could become a best-selling author if he decided to publish something for real. We know we’d be first in line.
Obvious Plant’s creator previously told Bored Panda in an interview a little bit about what he does. “I actually got the idea while doing a different plant, Better Book Store Sections,” Wysaski said about how he got inspired to make fake self-help book covers. Some examples of Wysaski’s fake store sections are ‘Dudes Who Lost Their Shirts’, ‘Meals You Intended To Make, But Never Will’ and ‘Great Place To Poop’. Pure comedy gold.
“While scouting and putting up signs for that prank, I thought of the idea to create some funny parody books. They were up for about a day,” Wysaski continued. “A few people who saw them online guessed which bookstore they were at (Book Soup). Apparently, one of them pointed the books out to the staff and that’s how they became aware of them.”
