Entire family dresses up like patriarch and surprises him in wholesome prank

A family with a spectacular sense of humor decided to prank their patriarch by having every single person dress up to look exactly like him.

Thankfully, the family had the hindsight to capture the entire prank on camera. And on Oct. 21, one of the family members named Macy Sauls uploaded a video of the mischievous stunt to TikTok, where it has received more than 2.1 million likes and more than 11,000 delighted comments.

“My whole family dressed up as my dad without him knowing,” Sauls says (via closed captioning) in the video. The video then cuts to her and her family putting on bald caps and blue polos as they transform into their beloved patriarch. Even the youngest members of the family — who can’t be more than 6 or 7 — get in on the action!

At the end of the video, Sauls captures her confused-looking father standing next to several of his family members dressed exactly like him. It’s a wholesome prank, and people on TikTok find it equal parts hilarious and heartwarming.

“This is the quality content I signed up for,” one person said.

“Your fam needs a reality show I’m convinced,” another added.

“I literally screamed!” a third said. “That last scene OMG.”

In a series of follow-up videos, Sauls captured her dad’s reaction to the elaborate ruse. When Sauls’ dad comes home, she and her family members start to mimic his mannerisms, but it takes him a few minutes to catch on to what his family is doing. Once he does, he is shocked and stunned, but also can’t stop laughing.

“This is like an episode of ‘Rick and Morty,'” one person commented.

“This is so wholesome, and funny,” another noted.

“Iconic. LMAO,” a third said.

When it comes to family, mockery is always in good fun!
