Ideas for Christmas pranks as Sam Thompson joins Elves Behavin’ Badly

The Elves Behavin’ Badly are upping the ante having hired mischief-maker and reality star Sam Thompson as Chief Prankster to help spread chaos in homes and workplaces up and down the country.

Known for his banter and practical jokes on long-suffering girlfriend Zara, practical joker Sam has joined the Elves Behavin’ Badly line up to inspire the nation to get pranking.

Sam will be inspiring the nation with a festive pranking 101 to encourage people to embrace their mischievous side this festive season.

Whether it’s tips on executing classic pranks such as adding festive wrap to everything in the bathroom – right down to the toothbrush – or ideas for pranking festive bakes with the addition of hot chili.

Sam said: “Being assigned Chief Prankster for Elves Behavin’ Badly is right up my street – it’s basically my calling as everyone who knows me, knows I live for winding up anyone around me.

“Coming up with Pranksmas ideas with the Elves and being encouraged to cause chaos and taunt Zara for basically the whole month of December – amazing – she won’t know what’s hit her!”

Paul Beverley, a director of the worldwide distributors for the Elves Behavin’ Badly dolls said: “This year, Elves Behavin’ Badly are upping the ante, taking pranking to a whole new level with the help of our naughty elves. Following restrictions around the festivities last year and limited household mixing, this year with the help of Sam and other familiar faces we are going all-out, and want to inspire everyone to get involved this Christmas.”

Following concerns of shortages with up to a million Elves Behavin’ Badly dolls previously stranded in China, the stock is now arriving in the UK having been flown in.
