Students at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids Michigan delivered an epic April Fool’s Day prank for their professor last week. With cell phone interruptions becoming increasingly problematic in college classrooms, Economics Professor Stephen Barrows developed a creative solution: if a student’s cell phone rings during class, the student has to answer the call – on speaker.
On April 1, student Taylor Nefcy’s phone rang during class, and per the professor’s mandate, the whole class heard the caller on the other end:
“Kevin” goes on to inform Taylor of the services his center provides to young women in her shoes:
There is no need to worry,” says the caller. “I know you told us the father is no longer in the picture, but we will be in contact with you throughout this whole process, so don’t worry about anything. We provide counseling and other maternity services at no charge.
Visibly shaken, the professor says “I would like to publicly apologize –“ but is cut off by Taylor, who explains that she’s been expecting the call, and it’s OK. “I already know what I’m going to name the baby. Her first name will be April and her middle name will be Fools.”
Here’s the kicker: The viral prank has a pro-life vibe. Notice how Taylor uses a pro-life pregnancy center to pull off the prank rather than an abortion clinic. Perhaps this is another sign of how the next generation is truly pro-life.
The video, which wasn’t published until the following Friday, has already garnered 12.5 million views on YouTube.
