Our friend Rob Cockerham over at Cockeyed has issued a challenge to pranksters around the world. He writes:
The economy is pitiful right now. Both where I live and where I work, I’m seeing a bunch of businesses closing their doors forever.
Shuttered buildings are incredibly depressing, so I’m launching a plan to help liven up our neighborhood streets and remind everyone that economic recovery is just around the corner.
It’s a contest. Create and print your own “Opening Soon” flier and tape it to the door of an empty retail, industrial or warehouse property. Email a picture and you are in the contest! Include a description of the location and hazards if you would like.

Our friend Rob Cockerham recently organized an awesome nation-wide prank where pranksters replaced fast food job application pads with the ridiculous fake pads he made. The funniest part of the prank is definitely the application itself, which Rob did an excellent job writing. Check out his site to see how he pulled it off and to read the hilarious questions he included. The Fast Food Job Application Prank at Cockeyed.
I was one of the dozen volunteers who helped spread the applications to fast food joints across the country. Check out the documentation of my personal conquest.
Master Prankster Rob Cockerham and his friends around the country recently added some extra signage to the sheds on display in their local Home Depot parking lots.
Home Depot, forced to lure customers inside without glitzy display windows, seed the warehouse perimeter with their products. This is only practical with hard-to-shoplift items, such as bags of steer manure and storage sheds.
Unfortunately, these sun-baked displays are all but abandoned by the sales staff, and must rely on graphics and signage to speak to their potential customers.
Despite an ambitious number of signs, I felt my local home depot wasn’t addressing some of the strongest benefits of owning a garden/storage/privacy shed/mini-garage/closet. I decided to make some new signs and try them out!
With nine eager volunteers poised to help, I sent signs to try out across the country.

Rob Cockerham from Cockeyed recently helped stage a dinner party in a Sacramento Ikea.
Oh! Those IKEA room displays! Entire rooms full of furniture, lighting, rugs and notions. Any one of those rooms would be a great place to sit and entertain friends. They look so comfortable and inviting!
It was an invitation that Jason Adair couldn’t pass up. He decided to have a Fancy Dress Party at IKEA.
