A man set up a fake house party using cardboard silhouettes to ‘p*** off’ his neighbours during the COVID-19 lockdown.
On March 28, Craig Norris, 37, from Solihull, England, decided to play a hilarious prank on his neighbours and make them believe he was hosting a crowded house party amid the COVID-19 quarantine.
Craig made a bunch of human silhouettes out of cardboard and set up some flashing party lights, he then lowered the curtains and blasted out the music in an amusing video.
Finally, he posted the video on social media where it went viral with over 11 million views.
Craig said: “I had the idea that since everyone is at home, you will likely see your neighbours a bit more that you would usually.
“People tend to either love or hate their neighbours, so I thought that was an interesting topic.
“Fortunately, our neighbours are really nice, but I had the idea that many people must be sat at home, and they see their neighbours out of the window, and they would be infuriated by seeing something like this!
“I also used the classic scene from ‘Home Alone’ for inspiration, where Kevin makes it look like he has a lot of people over to stop the burglars.”
