Man Pranks Girlfriend With Cardboard Laptop For Valentine's Day
A girl was pranked by her boyfriend when she opened up the laptop she wanted for Valentine's Day, only to find it was made out of cardboard.
Jessica Johnson from Boise, Idaho thought she was in luck after adding a laptop to her online wish list but her boyfriend, Jeff Gunn saw it as the perfect opportunity to play a prank.
Jeff, 32, decided to 'surprise' his girlfriend by giving her laptop made out of cardboard, complete with a keyboard and 'desktop wallpaper', concealed in a laptop box.
But all was well when he told Jessica, 25, that he wanted her to pick her own laptop that night, before forking out $480 (£372) on it.
Jessica said: "When I walked into the room and saw the laptop box, I was so shocked and couldn't believe that he had bought me - what I thought was - a laptop.
"But then when I opened the box and saw the fake, cardboard version, I couldn't stop laughing.
"He spent a month and a half making the fake and did it so well that I couldn't be mad at him or disappointed at all - even the keys worked!
"But as soon as he gave me the fake, he told me he wanted me to pick out my own at the store, so we went later that night, and that was a massive surprise too."
Jeff said: "I knew that Jessica needed a laptop, but I was worried I'd get the wrong one so I wanted her to pick out her own, but there had to be something to open - gift cards are boring.
"Her reaction went from super excited, to completely let down. She laughed it off, but I could tell how disappointed she was, so I told her 'let's go right now and pick you out a real one.'
"She couldn't get in the car fast enough - and it wasn't until the next day that she started to really appreciate the fake one."
