Students at a Wisconsin high school went to great lengths to pull off an incredible senior prank after they fooled people into thinking a car had crashed into the principal’s office.
Four seniors at Cumberland High School staged the elaborate prank on Monday.
The students made it look like a car had crashed into the building by positioning an old wreck in front of a huge ‘gaping hole’ in the brickwork.
Four students at Cumberland High School in Wisconsin fooled people into thinking a car had crashed into the principal’s office on Monday with their elaborate senior prank
But they had actually used tape and a black tarp to create the illusion of a hole and had loose bricks strewn across the ground for added special effects.
The creative students even put electric tape on the ground behind the car to make it look like skid marks.
They hatched the plan after one of them had bought a car for $200 before realizing it had severe front suspension problems, the Leader Telegram reports.
The students – Konur Pasko, Cody Paul, Adrian Warner and Jacob Woodley – spent the weekend removing the engine, front seats and wiring so they could saw off the front portion of the car.
They loaded the car onto a trailer and took it to their school at midnight on Sunday so they could get to work.

‘We didn’t want to be there long because we didn’t want to attract attention,’ Pasko said.
The elaborate prank earned the students praise from their school and even the local Cumberland Police Department.
‘Hats off to the Cumberland High School Class of 2018 on your senior prank,’ the police wrote on its Facebook page.
‘Congratulation Class of 2018 on one of best senior pranks that Cumberland High School has seen. Congratulations to all the seniors who are graduating.’
The school made a point of saying: ‘The best part? This prank included absolutely no damage at all to school property’.
