Prankster Obvious Plant Takes Over the L.A. Zoo

The great Henry David Thoreau once said, “This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” Well, L.A.-area comedian-prankster Jeff Wysaski, aka Obvious Plant, uses the world as his canvass by pranking the general public with funny flyers, signs and products. Recently, he took his project to the Los Angeles Zoo where he planted fake animals facts that made zoo patrons do double-takes. One poster outside of a bear habitat was designed to give zoo visitors a scare.


ANIMAL FACT: Never trust a bear. They are very sneaky. If you don’t see our bear in its pen it means HE”S ESCAPED OMG HE’S RIGHT BEHIND YOU DON’T TURN AROUND JUST RUN.

The Obvious Plant project grew out of Wysaki’s boredom with the current state of comedy. “I was somewhat bored with these more traditional humor avenues, so I started looking for something new,” Wysaski told Fast Company. “Late last year, I hit on the idea of ‘street humor’—for lack of a better term. I’d done a bit of this in the past, but the more I thought about it, the more ideas I had, so I felt the project warranted it’s own name and website.” If you’d like to see Wysaki’s work for yourself, unfortunately, according to Zoo spokeswoman April Spurlock, the signs were removed June 30th.

Here are a few of the flyers Wysaki hung at the Los Angeles Zoo.
