Christmas is nearly here and with it, the return of the Elves Behavinâ€™ Badly dolls causing mischief and mayhem – and this year, theyâ€™re back with a new prankster in tow!Â
The Elves Behavinâ€™ Badly dolls are upping the ante this Christmas and have hired mischief-maker and reality star Sam Thompson as Chief Prankster to help spread chaos in homes and workplaces up and down the country. Known for his banter and practical jokes on long-suffering girlfriend Zara, Sam has joined the Elves Behavinâ€™ Badly line-up to inspire the nation to get pranking!Â
Sam, who is leading the pranking charge along with a host of celebrities, will be encouraging people to embrace their mischievous side this festive season with his festive pranking 101. Whether itâ€™s tips on executing classic pranks such as adding festive wrap to everything in the bathroom – right down to the toothbrush – or ideas for pranking festive bakes with the addition of hot chilli, Pranksmas is back with a bang!Â
Donning stripey tights and taking his new role seriously, the TV personality is inspiring people to unleash their inner prankster and get on Santaâ€™s naughty list.Â
â€œBeing assigned Chief Prankster for Elves Behavinâ€™ Badly is right up my street – itâ€™s basically my calling, as everyone who knows me knows I live for winding up anyone around me”Chief Prankster, Sam Thompson
Sam said: â€œBeing assigned Chief Prankster for Elves Behavinâ€™ Badly is right up my street – itâ€™s basically my calling, as everyone who knows me knows I live for winding up anyone around me. Coming up with Pranksmas ideas with the Elves and being encouraged to cause chaos and taunt Zara for basically the whole month of December is amazing â€“ she wonâ€™t know whatâ€™s hit her!â€Â
Paul Beverley, a director of PMS International – the worldwide distributor for the Elves Behavinâ€™ Badly dolls – thinks this yearâ€™s campaign will bring a whole new level of mischief. He said: â€œThis year, Elves Behavinâ€™ Badly are upping the ante, taking pranking to a whole new level with the help of the naughty elves. Following restrictions around the festivities last year and limited household mixing, this year – with the help of Sam and other familiar faces – we are going all-out and want
to inspire everyone to get involved
Following concerns of shortages with up to a million Elves Behavinâ€™ Badly dolls previously stranded in China, the stock is now arriving in the UK having been flown in, and the cheeky Elves will be hereâ€¯just in timeâ€¯to cause their traditional festive mayhem.
