Here's The Most Hilarious Prank You Can Pull On Facebook

This Facebook user had a genius idea for a prank: find Facebook users with the same name as yourself, recreate their profile pictures as closely as possible and then send them a friend request. It's like seeing an alternate version of yourself and it's freaking hilarious.

Ryan Roy, the musician who came up with the idea, told the Huffington Post that, "none of them really got it, they just got really creeped out and changed their profile pic immediately." All you other Ryan Roys out there should get a sense of humour because the pictures below are comedic gold.

    Well that's useless for me, since there's only one other person I found on Facebook with my name.. Damn my uniqueness >_>

      You should recreate your own photo and send your self a friend request!

      You'll be laughing for hours! ;)

    must be a slow news week, kind of get tired of seeing this stuff 3 times, first its on reddit, 2 days later its on allure media, 2 days after that its on my facebook stream tagged yoloswag.

      Hint: Delete anyone who tags things yoloswag.

        Hint: Kill anyone that uses the terms yolo or swag... kill them with liberal amounts of fire. Who needs to not be on fire when you got #swag to protect you #yolo

    THAT is the most hilarious prank you can play on facebook?

    Facebook mustn't be that hilarious then. I'd chuckle if someone did that to me out of the blue, but not after its been done to death, as it must be if its being reported all over the web.

    I thought I had a fairly unique name, but when I got on facebook there were about 50 others. So I created a facebook group (e.g. "Jimbo Egghead Is The Best Name Ever") and I scanned in everything that had my name on it. A few newspaper articles, some martial arts awards, and a bazillion shitty work awards. Invited all those other same named folks. Promptly got ejected from facebook for a short time due to "spam" invites. when got back on, a bunch had joined, some blocked me, some ignored. A few thought it was hilarious like I did..

    I don't really see the point of blanking out the name when the premise is that Ryan Roy did this to people with the same name, i.e. Ryan Roy.

    Plus the dog one is hilarious.
