VIDEO: Pizza pranksters do good for the homeless
A group of men broke into their friend’s pizza parlor, Wholly Joe’s, in Lewis Center, Ohio, to play a prank on their friend. The video of their prank starts off unremarkably enough: The jokesters tell their friend one of them left his key inside his shop and that they’re just going to pop in for a second to get it back. The owner of the pizzeria seems reluctant, but he agrees to let them break into the restaurant.What happens next is an unexpected turn of events: The guys end up using their hand, hearts and cooking skills to spin out 30 pizzas to give out to homeless people in the area. They take the hot pizzas and rush out to deliver the fresh goods to a shelter and to homeless people sleeping on the streets. The pizzas are not entirely free: Sometimes the guys ask for a smile in return.
Not ones to shortchange their friend, the guys leave cash for him, too, to pay for their “prank.” You can hear a message at the end from the pizzeria owner saying he doesn’t know what happened, but he says, “Hopefully, I’ll get you back.” Better yet, he can pay it forward.
