If you ever wondered how such strange businesses start, you’re in luck. One of the co-founders, Arik Nordby, told the story in one of the previous interviews.

“Several years ago I watched my 8-year-old nephew unwrap what appeared to be a toaster oven (his parents had actually packed a video game console inside.) While he was dejected, he handled it politely while the adults played along with the joke by saying ‘Wow, Tommy, it has a timer and auto-clean feature – you are one lucky boy.’ It hit me then that I could use my package design skills and love of parody to create fake products to house gifts. I went out, bought a camera and a tripod, and started shooting my first prototype, The Home Dentistry Kit. Using parts from several items, I pieced it together in photoshop, wrote some copy, and built a box.

I’ve been doing graphic design for 30 years – a lot of it package design. I also love parody. From Wacky Packs (in the 70s) to Saturday Night Live fake product commercials, it’s always struck a chord with me. After I did my first few, I met one of the original Onion News founders, and Ryan Walther and I have been biz partners ever since 2010.”

Socks & Lids

“Every household has missing socks and food container lids – which makes Socks & Lids a thoughtful, problem-solving prank gift box.”

As for their creative process, Arik gave a few hints how they research their wonderful ideas. “Inspirations come from everywhere. We look at consumer trends, airplane catalogs, flea markets, surplus shops, late-night infomercials. Once we settle on a style, it’s time to create using random parts, soldering iron, glue guns, spray paint, and more. Them it’s time for photography and writing. We enlist many of our friends and family to model. It’s quite a fun process!”

Among Prank-O’s most successful products were “Earwax Candle Kit, Crib Dribbler, Bathe & Brew, and Rotowipe, which is pretty cool because there are four very distinct interests represented!” He also told us what his plans for the future are: “After a really successful fall launch, we’re doing more styles of Prank Gift Cards. We are also creating several more Prank Wine LabelsGreeting Cards, and Flyers. We’ve started the development of an app and we also have several other form factors that will be rolling out in the Spring of 2021, but for now, they’re under wraps. You’ll be among the first I tell, though!”
