20-year-old student Morgan Svobodny was the subject of a prank by her 23-year-old brother Zach that is so ingenious and elaborate, he should go to jail for it. He took it upon himself to mail out a photoshopped Christmas card supposedly from Morgan and her new "boyfriend," rapper Chief Keef. Then he sent it out to their entire extended family.
OMG MY BROTHER IS SUCH AN ASS. HE PHOTOSHOPPED A PIC OF ME WITH CHIEF KEEF & SENT OUT THESE CHRISTMAS CARDS😭😭 pic.twitter.com/Aac4SF8qY8— morgs💫 (@mxrgxnsvxbxdny) December 8, 2016
The letter reads:
Happy holidays, everyone! I hope you all had an amazing 2016 and are looking forward to making 2017 even better. This year has treated me fantastic!
Since September, I've been in a very serious relationship with an amazing guy named Keith Cozart, a famous rapper who some of you may know as Chief Keef. He has many hit songs that you've probably heard, such as "That's The Shit I Don't Like," "I Hate Being Sober," and "These Bitches Love Sosa." Keith is an amazing guy with a lot going for him and this is the happiest I've been in at least 6 months! I dropped out of college last month because I found out that I'm pregnant and I'm pretty sure Keith is the dad (not positive though). Keith and I plan on moving to Atlanta in March and we couldn't be more excited!!
Best wishes to you all in 2017!!
P.S. Bang Bang
To make the prank sting all the worse, Zach didn't tell Morgan anything about it. She didn't find out until her bewildered relatives reached out to her about it, as she explained to BuzzFeed News:
My Aunt Jen called me regarding my ‘new boyfriend’ and that she had gotten a Christmas card in the mail. At this point, I knew Zach was at the bottom of it.
It certainly fit his MO. Apparently, Zach has been pulling holiday pranks like this on Morgan for years. Check out the Christmas "gift" he gave her in 2014:
my brother made me one of those cute little jar things that every girl wants, except he made a few revisions.😅 pic.twitter.com/aZrtFugIHL— morgs💫 (@mxrgxnsvxbxdny) December 31, 2014
According to Morgan, Zach chose Chief Keef because they're both fans of his, and because his explicit song titles were sure to scandalize the family. Especially when they learned she was carrying his (or someone's) baby.
The brilliance of the prank, and Zach's attention to detail, were not lost on the Twitter masses.
Is this the new gold standard for pranks? Or does it need a coyote? You be the judge.
