Neighbour’s WiFi Printer Perfectly Pranked

Printer PrankTwitter

If you own a wireless/wifi printer you really may want to set up a password if you haven’t already… Not having one is just asking for trouble…

Recently, Blake Messick was attempting to print something off from his own printer at home when he noticed his neighbour had bought a new one which was wireless, and had forgotten to setup password on it… A rookie mistake, meaning anyone nearby including Blake, could go ahead and use it.

Not wanting to waste an opportunity (don’t blame him!) Blake decided to have some fun.

What’s scarier than technology becoming self aware and taking over the world…? Nothing and Blake’s neighbour knows that!

Allegedly sending the message to his neighbour through the wireless printer, it seems as though Blake’s prank worked rather well indeed as the printer ended up on their front lawn, along with a bag of rubbish… Blake didn’t waste an opportunity there, either.

The original tweet from Blake was published on Friday, December 30. Since then, the prank has been liked and retweeted a combined 101,000 times.

It isn’t clear whether the prank was a hoax or not but either way, this guy is genius… Simply amazing.
