Many identical twins love playing pranks on people, especially when they are growing up. They may go to each other’s classes, even play sports for each other, go on different dates… it’s all in good fun. I’ve always found it fascinating to see two people look exactly alike. This is the first time that I’ve seen a prank like this that involves a baby. It’s a short but very funny video of a harmless joke.
One brother, presumably the father, is holding his son. The other brother is standing across from him. One brother asks the baby to point out his daddy. He points at the twin. He hands the baby to the twin… who then asks the question again. The baby points at the twin who was originally holding him. At this point, the two of them are cracking up laughing at the baby’s recognition pattern.
They try different ways to distinguish themselves. Already, they have distinctly different hair styles and outfits as well as vastly different eyeglasses. Don’t ask a baby to discern between all that though. He just sees his daddy’s face in both of them and who can blame him… they are identical twin brothers, after all. If this were a dramatic TV show or soap opera, one might reveal that the two of them switched places five years ago.
Of course, the whole thing could have gotten really awkward if the baby screamed for daddy when the twin was heading out the door to go home. Hopefully, by then the baby will have been asleep for a while. It was a pretty funny prank, though, and the baby was being such a good sport about it. Though the possibilities of nightmares about being handed back and forth between two dads might lurk…
I thought this was a cute prank. Then again, I never had twin brothers play a prank on me as a baby. What did you think? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section. Also, please like us on Facebook!
