The prank saw Rebecca, from Pontyclun, Wales, "accidentally" text Luke a screenshot of a PlayStation 5 in their hallway. Claiming to have been meaning to send the text to her sister. Rebecca then went on to explain it was his Christmas present.
While Rebecca didn't think Luke would fall hook, line and sinker for the prank, she was left feeling a little guilty when the civil engineer told all his workmates about his Christmas gift.
In the conversation shared online, Rebecca told Luke: "Omg look what just got delivered. The box is huge!!! How am I supposed to hide that until Christmas?!
"Omg!!! Ignore that. I was supposed to send that to Kathie [my sister]."
Luke replied: "You best be f***ing joking."
Rebecca said: "I don't even know what to say. I'm so sorry, it was supposed to be a surprise!! I can't believe I sent it to you."
However, she had to weaken when she saw Luke really believed in the present, and informed him it was an Instagram filter - leading to a Luke launching into a tirade of four-letter words.
The joke went viral when it was posted on social media, attracting 7,900 likes, shares and comments.
Speaking about the prank, Rebecca said: "I didn't think he would believe me. I expected him to click on straight away considering they haven't been released yet, but when he fell for it I couldn't help but play along.
"I felt guilty afterwards. He's still using the PS3 he had as a teenager and was really looking forward to an upgrade, bless him."
She added that, as mother of two boys, Luke is always playing pranks on her with their kids.
"We will still have an amazing Christmas. Although, I don't think Luke will be happy unwrapping a pair of socks rather than the PS5 he was expecting.
"He's such a wind up, we've been together almost four years now and he's constantly playing pranks around the house.
"Mainly jumping out on me and recording my reaction and using fake spiders to scare me. He also plays pranks on family members and friends."
Rebecca continued: "Everyone who knows Luke knows how much he loves playing pranks. Now we've got two young boys, he gets them involved too. I am outnumbered.
"We couldn't believe [the reaction it got online]. It was put up for family and friends to have a little giggle, so we never expected it to blow up the way it has."
Luke has said he was "gutted" when Rebecca revealed it was all a joke.
"I still didn't know if she was trying to cover her tracks or not and she had gotten me it, but then I looked on Instagram and saw it was a filter.
"It all confirmed for me then and sunk in. I had to go and tell the boys that she had me a good one. They were all in tears laughing, especially the men.
"I work alongside my uncle and he could see the excitement in me and he just couldn't stop laughing when I told him she'd pranked me.
"I'm definitely going to plan a good revenge, it's just what. How do I top it? She's gone viral with it."
The PlayStation 5 is scheduled for release in the UK on November 19th.
