In 2011 Prime: ???


The PAX Prank community tradition is back and once again we need your help! We need able individuals to help organize and be involved in this year’s prank.

Before I continue please read the Prank Mission Statement:

The PAX Prank strives to be fun for everyone involved, be it the one(s) being pranked (henceforth known as “targets”) or the ones pranking (henceforth “pranksters”). The PAX Prank will never be something with malicious intent. It will strive to never embarrass targets (much). It will be mindful of people who want no part in it, will not push the issue, and will always respect the authority figures of Penny Arcade Inc., PAX, and Greater Seattle/Boston. The PAX prank will not cause any damage emotionally, physically, or financially to anyone, whether they are involved directly or indirectly.

This year's prank is being kept under wraps from the general public ;). But we do need interested volunteers! If you would like to join our cult please post here, PM myself, or send an email to paxprank@gmail.com with a brief introduction about yourself and an email address for future communication. Please do not respond if you cannot fit within the confines of the mission statement above or the criteria below.

Requirements:

You must not be opposed to Twitter and preferably can get SMS updates or potentially phone calls. We typically coordinate our various pranks via Twitter throughout the weekend.

You must be at least moderately outgoing. What we do will call a lot of attention to ourselves. We will probably be interacting with some of the celebrities that are at PAX as well. In other words, YOU WILL BE SEEN! If attention, social interaction, and having people probably laughing at you and/or wanting to praise you/shake your hand -- among other things -- upsets you, you need not look any further.*

*Note: If you would like to be involved in the creative aspects of the prank (content, design, etc) rather than the actual presentation please send me a message. We’re always looking for help.

You must be able to keep a secret. There may be mass emails, Skype calls, and other private conversations between now and then. We want to keep the reactions of our targets pure; surprise is the key here. Since we are getting more people in on the joke, the potential for leaks increases, so please don’t sign up if you know you are bad at keeping a secret.

You must be available either Thursday night or Friday morning before the show opens. This rule is a little more lenient. Most of us will be doing the Pre-PAX dinner, Pub Crawl, or the like, so specifics at this time are sketchy. This is for a last minute meeting to go over anything that might have come up, and give opportunities for a run through of the physical prank. It will be coordinated to fit everyone’s schedules as best we can, and we will do two meetings if needed, but if you can’t be there on either day for 15 to 30 minutes tops, don’t bother signing up.

I hope you will all consider joining us for an out of this world 2011 PAX PRIME Prank!

    Count me in! I am thinking I would like to help in planning and preparations.

    And depending on the prank being pulled off then part of execution. But that depends on the prank since I am part of cookie brigade, cosplaying, and have my boyfriend and friend in my group and am not sure if any of these will interfere.

    I should go.

    idk all of these "pranks" kinda seem well....lame :/ What is so pranky about them? It's really just people running around in bad cosplays.....kinda sound like a douche but i just want to see something more elaborate and mischievous. Although I will admit Bad Horsing was good.

    Sadly, the PAX Prank may not be for everyone. Personally, I've had a great time working with other members of the community, our PAX "celebrities," and the figures of Penny Arcade. It has been an enriching experience. We do welcome future prank suggestions, as long as they fit within our above mission statement.

    With regards to this year's prank, I've added everyone who has requested to join. If you haven't heard back from me, please drop me a line and include your email address.

    I have always wondered how the pranks get set up. I'd love to be involved if I can.

    Not *that* kind of princess.

    It was so much fun. It took up so much of my time (I participated in literally every gathering I was able to), but honestly I had so much fun I didn't care what else I was missing.

    Yeah, arguably the best part of PAX for me (I was the guy with the sign stitched to his shirt. :P)
