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.

As per tradition, 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 complete our application: removed . 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, G+ Huddle, 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 feel free to apply. 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 a spudtacular 2012 PAX EAST Prank!

    Sounds like fun. I loved seeing the Landos at Prime. I don't think I could be in on the Prank, but if you need volunteers for "targets" I'm game.

    - Biting's excellent! It's like kissing. Only there's a winner.

    I don't see your submission on our end. Maybe try resubmitting. I don't know, offhand what the form should display after you hit submit. Maybe @peetsnack knows, he submitted a test entry.

  • cacash10cacash10 Registered User
    I am unsure if whether or not I can show up, but if I can, I am willing to do anything you need done. I love pranks, and I would love to get involved with the PAX community. If anything is open, or if you need something done, let me know.

    EDIT: The OP has been updated!

    With the previous pranks, we've had to collect donations to support our comedic endeavors. These funds were used for props, celebrity gifts, and other items needed for the event and performance.

    Usually we keep the solicitation of donations internal to prank participants. But, after The Lando Society last year, folks approached us and asked if there was a way to help the prank without directly participating/performing. So, for the first time we are posting our donation link publicly.

    Check out my signature for a link to the donation page and thanks for your support!

    At this point all the people who properly filled out the application should have their response.

    Drat forgot about this until just now. Oh well, I had a blast this year on the prankster end, hopefully I can catch the other side this year. My thighs have still not forgiven me for last year anyway.

    We're getting close to PAX! Another video update!

  • burnttoast45burnttoast45 regular Registered User regular
    Thanks again to those who participated in this East's Prank. It was a tremendous success and truly a crowd pleaser. I hope you all had an amazing time.

  • zerzhulzerzhul mod Registered User, Moderator mod
    Definitely the best yet. I wasn't sure we could top The Lando Society, but we did. Also thanks to all the [E]s, attendees, and PA staff that made this a massive success.
