A TikToker wanted her boyfriend, who found out his bar exam results, to be a surprise – but like all good content creators, she wanted to pull a cheeky prank in at the same time.
Kristina (@kristinaboyce_) decided to receive two cakes from Great American Cookies with different messages written on them for each of the possible exam results – pass or fail.
The good news is that Kristina’s boyfriend passed his exam – which gave her the perfect opportunity to carry out her surprise / prank.
On a viral TikTok, Kristina is seen stepping into action by picking up the matching cake to give to her boyfriend, only deliberately choosing the one with the fail message. Then she carries the box out as a surprise while she films the whole thing.
When the friend opens the box, he is confused by what he is seeing. The message on the cake is: “Fuck the pole! Who wants to become a lawyer? “
Fortunately, the friend found it hilarious and in the video you can hear him laughing as he reads the message.
Then you hear Kristina say: “Oh shit!”
Then she goes through her kitchen to get the other box of the congratulatory cake and puts it on the table and says, “Sorry, here” while her friend continues laughing.
The message on the second cake is much more fitting. It reads “CONGRATULATIONS, Mr. Lawyer !!” and adds: “I never doubted you for a second.”
At this point they both giggle when her boyfriend tells her, “You’re so lame.”
Kristina revealed the inspiration behind the funny prank in her TikTok caption, writing, “Oops, accidentally brought out the wrong cake … * yes, I stole that from the Sonic movie *”.
The TikToker appears to be referring to a deleted scene from the 2020 Sonic the Hedgehog film in which Thomas “Tom” Michael Wachowski (James Marsden) receives news that he has ended up in the San Francisco Police Department.
Tom’s wife Maddie then excitedly reveals a cake she picked up ahead of time to celebrate, but she mistakenly saves the cake she gave him in case he doesn’t come in the bottom one.
Since sharing her own opinion on the stunt, Kristina’s prank has been viewed 9.3 million times, with 2 million likes and thousands of comments from people who found it entertaining.
One person wrote, “The fact that you spent money on two just to be funny is amazing.”
“I’m sorry, this is the cutest and funniest thing,” said another person.
Someone else added, “And THIS is how you prank someone you love.”
“It’s so healthy and lovely,” replied a fourth person.
The best thing for us is that the couple now has twice as much cake – surely a win-win situation for everyone?
