You’ve got to applaud the ingenuity of a pranker. It’s a skill in itself and something that we need to see more of.

The last great prank I saw was the blindfolded half-time basketball shot that one friend set up on another. While this one isn’t as elaborate or as hard-hitting in its climax it’s still good to watch the crowd’s reaction.

The rock bottom of it is that a group of friends decide to bury a treasure chest filled with chocolate gold on beach during the night and then conduct a dig during the day, while capturing the hysteria of the wide-eyed onlookers.

It all takes place on the sands of Venice Beach in California. Not the type of place you’re likely to find a Long John Silver type treasure haul but its good jest no doubt.
