The Cricket is not normally a fan of practical jokes — but it has to admit that this one is flippin' hilarious.

It happened around Easter at Brigham Young University, where some guys took revenge on three young women - identified in the video as Sadie, Natalie and Bronwyn - for stealing one of the guys' Nelson Mandela air freshener.

They got into the women's apartment, removed the living-room furniture, laid down some plastic sheeting and a layer of sod, and put in flowers and a tree or two. Then they populated the grass, in Easter fashion, with chicks and bunnies.

Then, to top it off, one of the guys put on an Easter bunny costume and waited for the big reveal.

And, because a prank isn't a prank if it isn't recorded, they planted cameras all around and captured the whole thing for YouTube. Since being posted last Wednesday, the video has more than 88,000 hits, and gotten a write-up on The Huffington Post.
