Sister’s 30-year prank war gets a helping hand from Virgin Australia

Sister’s 30-year prank war gets a helping hand from Virgin Australia

Many siblings find odd ways to pass the time and for grown-up Kiwi sisters Angela and Mari, they’ve passed the time for 30 years with a prank war.

However, as the prank war has been going on for a long time, it’s easy for ideas to quickly run out. Angela realised that her sister was going on a flight to Tonga and decided to enlist the help of Virgin Australia for the ultimate sisterly prank.

She reached out to the airline via Facebook and they were more than happy to get involved.

"We find the stupidest things funny, which is why this game started," Angela told the airline.

The prank involves their dad’s 40th birthday present, which is an odd-looking miniature “The Bearded Man” toy.

The pranks initially started off small and quickly escalated.

"We would hide it, and the other one would find it ... [we] couriered them, posted them, [hid it] under the pillow, planted him in the [car] sun visor."

After messaging Virgin Australia, Angela left it up to the crew to decide what happened.

The video has a very sweet ending, with both sisters ending up surprised. Watch the video below!
