Punk'd, Kiwi Style

It's a thin line that exists between "prank" and "home improvement project."

The first time I watched the video below, I marveled at the outrageous amount of time, effort, money, and manpower that had to go into this prank. And I considered moving to New Zealand, just for the chance to become friends with these guys. But then I read the write-up at Gizmodo:
Friends don't get better than this. They could always have your back, they could be your groomsmen at your wedding, hell they could even give a kidney to you and they won't ever beat these guys who pranked their friend by replacing his entire home plumbing system with beer. As in every faucet would spew out sweet delicious beer instead of water. As in beers on every tap. It's a dream come true.

It's obviously a viral marketing campaign by New Zealand's Tui beer but I'll excuse that because for one, beer. Also, these guys are just so eager to rig their friend's house with beer and then drink it together that I find it absolutely adorable. Plus, New Zealand accents are pretty awesome on the scale of accents. And lastly, who wouldn't want this to happen to them?!

Well...damn. This is still hilarious. And effective. *googles "apartments for rent in Auckland"*
