Have you ever been pranked?

Today, people can come up with different pranks. They are everywhere, and you really don’t know when you’re already being pranked.

Pranks are content that people love, and most pranks go viral, so that’s one reason people love them.

However, some pranks are too scary and annoying.

Coming up with a prank that is funny, harmless, and viral is not that easy, but if you do, then that’s going to be epic.

Like many of us, Cole Henderson, the lead carpenter for Callier & Thompson, loves pranks.

One day, he found the opportunity to pull off an epic prank that he had been planning for years. He knew it was worth the wait, and the moment had come for him to do it.

When a homeowner in St. Louis contacted the remodeling company in Manchester, Missouri, Cole felt excited when he found out that they want Callier & Thompson to renovate their kitchen.

It was the moment he had been waiting for!

He talked to the homeowners about his epic prank plan, and they laughed about the idea. They loved it and totally agreed to it.

The plan was to hide a skeleton in one of the unused cabinets in the kitchen. His idea came from a meme, and he tweaked it a bit.

“The original meme just had a skeleton, so I decided to throw my work uniform on it,” Henderson said in his interview with TODAY. “20 or 30 years down the road when that gets remodeled, it will give somebody a jump scare.”

Anyone who would hear his plan would love it!

Bob Strate, the president, and co-owner of Callier & Thompson, also knew about the prank, and he, too, loved the idea.

According to Strate, it wasn’t unusual in their field of work to find time capsules. Once, they worked on a home that was built in the late 1800s to early 1900s and they found an old newspaper hidden inside the walls.

That was cool! Imagine discovering something that old and seeing how the people lived there too.

Can you imagine Cole’s vision?

His prank will unravel after a few decades and for the people involved, the long wait will be worth it.

There was another person who knew about the prank and that was Cole’s 3-year-old son, Adrian.

Adrian loved the idea.

After all, he was a big fan of Halloween, and being with his dad when the skeleton was brought home gave the young boy so much joy.

“The day that I went and picked up the skeleton and brought him home, my 3-year-old son basically made friends with the skeleton the night before I took him to the job site,” Cole happily shared.

They named him “Skelly,” and we think it’s an awesome name.

The photos that Strate shared on Facebook went viral, and it was hilarious!

Skelly wore a Callier & Thompson uniform complete with a cap. Then inside the wooden box, you’ll see a signature with the date.

There were also what seemed to be days marked by Skelly and it showed seven days. It’s as if he stayed there for seven days before he died.

Of course, the marker was still in his hands.

After a few decades, someone will open this and will see a Skelly.

What do you think their reaction will be?
