Its that time of year again … go to your storage unit and dust off the Halloween costumes for you and your kids.  Also stock up for the treats that you will inevitably also be giving out to ghouls and ghosts that come knocking at your door!

Have you thought, however, about asking for a trick instead of giving out a treat …?

We at Metro Storage have been doing some digging about and have come up with 5 Top Tricks for Halloween.

No. 5: Airhorn closet prank

What you’ll need: At least three people, one closet, one airhorn

How to: Hide in the closet. Tell your friend to ask your other friend for something in said closet. As friend opens closet, squeeze airhorn. Observe reaction, indulge in uncontrollable laughter, and never look back.

No. 4: Falling spider prank

What you’ll need: One friend, about 10 to 20 feet of clear fishing line, one hook, one large fake spider (or real spider, depending on how much of a sadist you are)

How to: Screw hook into ceiling above couch. Tie clear fishing line to spider and drape over hook, leaving more than enough fishing line to hold on to. Hide behind couch or curtains. As soon as friend sits down, release extra fishing line, propelling the spider on to the friend’s head. Laugh, point, and make sure someone catches it on video.

No. 3: Human chair prank

What you’ll need: At least two friends, one real chair, two old couch cushions to wear on your torso and legs, two old pillows to wear on your arms, one blanket

How to: Cut holes in old cushions and pillows to create “wearable chair suit.” Sit in real chair like you actually are a chair. Have friend drape blanket over your head. Make sure you can still breathe. Have friend number one direct friend number two to take a load off and have a seat. As friend number two sits down, forcibly wrap your arms around them while moaning. Continue moaning.

No. 2: Zombie pizza prank

What you’ll need: One Halloween party, at least three empty pizza boxes, one skirted table, one zombie

How to: Cut holes in empty pizza boxes. Place pizza boxes on skirted table. Hide zombie under skirted table with head shoved through holes in pizza boxes. Encourage party goers to have some pizza. Record reactions filled with sheer terror and upload to Facebook immediately. Tag freely.

No. 1: Live T-Rex prank

What you’ll need: A few friends in on the prank, one victim, one long hallway, one T-Rex

How to: As your victim nonchalantly walks down the hallway, send your gaggle of prankster friends running and screaming past the victim. Just as your victim looks back, unleash the T-Rex, and have a very happy halloween.
