So today we have come up with prank call ideas that you can play on anyone, whether they are your relatives or friends.
Best jokes for prank calling (Prank call ideas)
(1) Is John there?
Call up your friend or anyone and ask for John. It’s obvious that the victim isn’t John or hardly any John would be available there. Alternatively, you can use any other name instead of John. The victim will deny the same and end up saying it’s a wrong number. Call the number several times in a day or in a week and annoy him/her.
(2) Confuse Pizza Hut
The best type of prank call has been the Pizza Hut confusion that you can create. Call up the Pizza Hut outlet and describe them the best type and flavor of pizza you have known. Keep the conversation descriptive by defining the pizza and keep it more vividly as possible.
Avoid hanging up the phone immediately and keep them busy in the conversation. At the end, ask them if that very form of pizza is available at the Dominos outlet.
(3) Who am I?
This is one of my favorite among all prank call ideas. Ring a random number and start a casual conversation. If you succeed keeping the conversation long then ask the person if he/she knows you. Let them guess for a minute, then put your answer forward. Tell them, “How will you know who I am when I myself is not able to figure it out?”
(4) Scare the person with random statements
Call a random person or a friend and scare them with random statements like ‘I love you’ or ‘I’ve been watching you’. You can also use any other dramatic statements like this to scare the person. Make it more dramatic and annoy the person over and over again.
If you know the person then you can also share some of his/her personal records or history to ensure the person that you are watching over them. This would make the prank more interesting. 10 Best Prank Call Websites to Send Free Prank Calls to your Friends
Good prank call ideas
(1) Would you prefer a free trip or $5000 cash?
These are a common form of prank calls which often work out. Dial a random phone number and pretend as if you are an executive from one of the leading travel websites. Start speaking fast about the company and introduce yourself as a core member. Congratulate the person for winning a coupon and offer them a surprise reward.
The person will certainly be confused and ask you about it. If you can, then ignore their questions and skip to the prize-winning topic. Tell them that they won a free trip to Switzerland (or you can use any other attractive foreign country). The reward also includes a $5000 cash, so they can choose either the Switzerland trip or avail the cash prize.
(2) Find the secret affair
Call up a person, probably someone you know can tell them you are from the radio station. Pretend to be the radio station person and engage him/her in an interesting topic asking them to dedicate a song to their boyfriend or girlfriend.
If the person is in a relationship then he/she will instantly tell you the name and the song they want to dedicate to their boyfriend/girlfriend. Then crack the conversation and reveal that you are his/her partner’s friend and their partner is shocked to hear someone else’s name.
Additionally, you can also state that their partner is breaking up with them and this will keep the victim confused for some time.
Funny prank call ideas
(1) Ask for an advice
This prank call idea can test and enhance your storytelling skills. Ring up a random number and start describing your fake problem. You can begin a conversation talking about your breakup with your girlfriend or being at depression all the time.
The victim might ask you several questions in annoyance and it’s up to you to manage them and keep them on the line. Put in additional details to spice up the conversation and ask them for their unbiased advice. Also, let your victim stammer and stutter as you go moaning about your fake breakup.
(2) You’re out of toilet paper
This time, it’s time to prank a restaurant or hotel manager. Hotels are focused towards customer service and you can take an advantage out of it. Call the best hotel in your town and wait for the operator to come online. Obviously, they will expect a reservation from your side, and once they fulfill their formal conversation, start talking in a hushed tone.
Tell them, “I am stuck in your washroom and cannot come out as it is out of toilet paper. Please provide me one.” Try not to laugh or else your prank will reveal immediately. Let the victim believe in you and feel embarrassed about it. Try fooling them with more detail and leave them bewildered.
(3) Why did you call me?
This prank often works with elderly people. Call up any random number and ask them why they called you. The victim will get furious immediately. Repeat this multiple times and eventually, the person will hang up the phone.
This is a great trick if you are extremely bored during the day. You can call up random numbers like this and play the same prank over and over again to see their reactions. You can also threaten the person by saying that you will report to the police station with their complaint. Interesting & Random Questions to Ask a Guy, Girl & Stranger
(4) Be the fake mobile operator
Dial your friend’s number or any other random number, and pretend as if you are from the mobile operating company. Tell them that you called for a monthly mobile phone checkup and ask them to repeat whatever you say to check if the phone is operational.
You can use a few silly or funny phrases like, “I shower with my donkey every day” or “My friend threw eggs at me”. At the end, you can ask the person to repeat one last sentence like, “I am an idiot who fell for this fake mobile phone testing guy.”
(5) Fake surveys
This is one of the common and good prank call ideas that you can try. The survey prank is another hilarious way to keep the person engaged in questions so that they don’t hang up immediately. Ask the person, a few ridiculous questions like, “Have you ever eaten snake eggs?” or “Did you watch the latest episode of Baywatch?” (Knowing that the series came our years ago).
The answers you get will make you laugh for hours. You can shoot similar other stupid questions to keep the person involved.
(6) Haunted house
Call up a random number and tell them that you are the previous owner of that house/land. Apologize to them for creating such inconvenience and tell them in a hushed voice, “Listen to me carefully! The girl in this house committed suicide years ago and her soul haunts the house.”
The person on the other side will be probably confused and shocked, so you need to engage them sounding it’s a scary fact. Persuade the person to believe you and hang up saying, “Beware tonight”! If the person is scared of ghosts he/she will definitely remain scared for the day so try this prank call idea carefully.
Note: This kind of prank should not be played with everyone, except the person you know. For heart patients and pregnant women, such pranks may convert to a serious health trouble.
