From the with-friends-like-these department comes a shiny story on a man whose friends tin-foiled nearly his entire apartment while he was gone on a trip.
A lone book titled “Cruel Tricks for Dear Friends” was untouched.
But nearly everything else in Chris Kirk’s downtown Olympia apartment was encased in aluminum foil when he returned home Monday night from a trip to Los Angeles.
The walls, ceiling, cabinets and everything in between now shimmer with a metallic glow, thanks to a prank by Kirk’s longtime friend, Olympia native Luke Trerice.
No detail was too small or too time-consuming.
Trerice and his friends unrolled the toilet paper in the bathroom, enveloped the bath tissue in aluminum foil and rolled it back up again. They covered Kirk’s book and compact disc collections but made sure each CD case could open and shut normally.
They even used foil to encircle Kirk’s spare change—each individual quarter he had left atop a living room bookshelf.
“It went surprisingly fast,” Trerice said. “The toilet was hard. The molding around the doorways took a very long time.”
And they left silver Hershey’s kisses sprinkled throughout Kirk’s home, sitting on bookshelves and kitchen cabinets.
One of the cooler aspects of this prank is the fact that they made sure all of the appliances were still usable and almost nothing was moved from where the owner had left it. The news article includes some pics of the apartment in all its metalized glory.
