Virtual ice-Breaker Prank!
Platform: Virtual Meeting
Time: 3 minutes
Audience size: 5-No Limit
Everyone needs their webcams on for this to work, and you will need to prep EVERYONE ahead of time except the person you are pranking.
Special Notes: This is a great ice-breaker but is for teams who know one another since you need to get everyone in on the joke ahead of time. Would be great for a weekly or monthly sync, etc.
Send everyone the picture that you see below that says "reconnecting"
Everyone must add this picture to their zoom profile (directions here for adding the image to your profile https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201363203-Customizing-your-profile , takes 10 seconds)
Use this photo below, but keep in mind once you do that if you turn off your video it will show this picture below.
Let everyone know that you will be asking the "person you want to prank" an impromptu question once everyone is on the meeting.
As soon as the person starts to respond EVERYONE on the meeting just click stop video.
Because you changed your profile picture to "reconnecting" that is what will show up in all the boxes.
Everyone just be quiet and see what the victim does!
Here's an example i used if I were pranking the lady from Tiger King or Tom Brady : )
This Ice-breaker gets everyone laughing, and plays a fun prank on someone from your team. Should be all done in good fun and the point should be after a few awkward moments to pop back on and show the person some love!
