A Pseudo Break-in That Turned Into a Heartwarming ‘Prank’

Little did a pizza parlor owner know that when he handed over the restaurant keys, his friends were about to “prank” him in a way that’s seriously hard to be mad about.

Roman Atwood, a YouTube prankster, and his buddies convinced the owner of Wholly Joe’s Chicago Eatery, located in Lewis Center, Ohio, that one of them had left a wallet inside and that they needed the key to enter after hours.

While they told Joe they would be in and out, three hours later they had made 30 pizzas, left money for them on the counter and were off to a homeless shelter for an impromptu pizza party.

“Give him some love for being such a good sport!” the YouTube video’s description requested for their unwitting pizza benefactor, Joe.

“What happened last night?” Joe says in the video after arriving at the restaurant the next day. “All I see at the register is a stack of money, a note saying I fed the homeless… And what the heck, I don’t understand what you guys did.”
