The Greatest TiVo Practical Joke

The Greatest TiVo Practical Joke This is one of the funniest things I’ve seen on the internet in a long time. The story goes something like this:

“After a fake craps dice prank on Thad during Haasfest 2004 was so successful, we had to come up with something for Haasfest 2005 that would top it. The idea was to pre-record a Texas Lotto drawing and a save it on the TIVO. We bought a lottery ticket with the numbers to match that pre-recorded lottery drawing. The day of Haasfest, we asked Thad stop on his way over and buy a couple Lotto tickets. At some point in the night, we swapped the tickets he had bought with the fake tickets. If you ever wanted to know what it felt like to win the lottery, just watch Thad check his numbers…”

The guys who made this put a video of it up on Google Video. This guy goes absolutely nuts jumping up and down and hugging everyone when he thinks he won the lottery. Hey, what are great friends for if not to give you that once in a lifetime high of what it feels like when you win the lottery?

The Today show had the group of guys in the video on their show this morning.

Thanks, Lost Remote!

    Not an original joke. This was done in the movie Dream with the Fishes (1997) which had the added joke where the guy went and blew the rest of the money he had because he thought he was going to be rich. Of course in 1997 it was done with a VHS.

    “My Tivo is so stupid that when it saw I was watching all these poker shows, it started recommending that I watch “Full House.”
