Numerous Amazon orders on the front porch of a home.

The Amazon boxes prank involved herself, her mother, and her sister saving up their Amazon boxes for nearly an entire year. On April 1, 2019, they then stacked all of those boxes onto their front porch (and some down the walkway because there were so many), for him to see when he got home. Naturally, when he pulled into the driveway, he was confused as to what his wife could have possibly ordered. On top of that, he was definitely sweating at the thought of that incoming credit card bill. (1)


“I’ve been planning an April Fools joke to play on Rob for MONTHS !! I got him good! I wish I would have continued to record right away when he came in the house. When he saw me recording out the window I thought he realized that it was a joke, but when he came inside he asking kept, “What IS all that?!?” I had to explain that it was 6 months of saved boxes, from us, my parents and my sister! The second video is his reaction.
April Fools!
Anyone need any boxes?!?”

Online Praise
