Elves Behavin’ Badly: Sam Thompson reveals top 10 festive pranks

Celebrity Sam Thompson, who is fronting the Elves Behavin’ Badly Pranksmas campaign to inspire the nation to get pranking, has shared his all-time top 10 favourite pranks as inspiration for people to carry out during the festive season and beyond.

But in the meantime, behind the scenes, the Elves Behavin’ Badly have turned the tables on him. The pesky duo have out-pranked Sam by giving his house a festive makeover and by turning his and girlfriend Zara’s house into a Christmas grotto, leaving their mark in his window for passers by. You can watch the video here.

Sam’s top 10 ideas for festive mayhem are:

  1. Rice Krispies prank

The mischievous Elves Behavin’ Badly dolls place a cascade of Rice Krispies in the cupboard and Sam is showered in the cereal as he goes to open the cupboard doors!

  1. 2Whipped cream in pool noodle prank

Sam sprays whipped cream on a pool noodle and when Zara goes to open the fridge, she gets whipped cream all over her face!

Sam then places in headphones and blocks out her reaction!

  1. 3Fart spray prank

Sam pretends that he and Pete are going to do a Carpool Karaoke, only for Sam to continuously use fart spray in Pete’s direction and cause a hilarious reaction!

  1. 4Leaf blower toothpaste prank

Sam takes inspiration from the internet with the leaf blower prank. Whilst Zara is brushing her teeth, Sam comes into the bathroom and turns on the leaf blower causing toothpaste to go everywhere!

  1. 5Talcum powder in hairdryer prank

Zara comes out the shower expecting to blow dry her hair, only for Sam to have placed talcum powder in the hairdryer and it blows directly into her face!

  1. 6Fake handcuff strip prank

Sam pranks Pete with another fake ad and convinces him they are being paid to be handcuffed together. Whilst they are, Sam gives him a not-so-nice surprise by stripping in public!

  1. 7Old man mask whilst girlfriend is sleeping prank

Sam places an old man’s mask over his face and turns to face Zara in bed, when he wakes her up, her reaction is one of shock and surprise!

  1. 8Scaring sister in dinosaur outfit prank

Sam dresses up in a dinosaur outfit and calls his sister Louise to the kitchen before jumping out at her. Not only does she hit Sam in the face, but she falls to the floor after!

  1. 9Fruit pastel prank with egg

Sam tests a blindfolded Zara’s fruit pastel knowledge, before cracking an egg and pouring yolk into her mouth – her reaction shows what she thought of that surprise!

  1. Water bottle prank with egg on head

Sam attempts to fit an egg into a water bottle and plays a trick on Louise when she leans over the bottle. Not only does he squirt water in her face, but he squashes the egg over her head!

Sam Thompson is acting as Chief Prankster for Elves Behavin’ Badly to help spread chaos in homes and workplaces up and down the country. Known for his banter and practical jokes on long-suffering girlfriend Zara, practical joker Sam has joined the Elves Behavin’ Badly line-up to inspire the nation to get pranking!

Paul Beverley, a director of the worldwide distributors for the Elves Behavin’ Badly dolls says: “With last year’s restrictions and limited household mixing no longer in place, we hope to see the tradition of pranking grow, and see Sam’s involvement as the next step in taking pranking to a whole new level.

“Our decision to appoint him as Chief Prankster was easy, he’s synonymous with playing practical jokes and is a big kid at heart.

“With his other familiar faces helping out on Pranksmas 2021, we want to inspire everyone to get involved this Christmas and run the risk of being on Santa’s naughty list!”
