PRANKSVILLE — In my short time as curator of Have You Seen This?, I have already documented that I have no patience for pranks. So what am I to do on April Fools' Day?

Nothing for it but to share a “good deeds” prank.

Based on the stunts shown on its YouTube channel, Break is all about pranks that aren't too good-natured. But this April it decided to “Prank It Forward” by sharing “unexpected goodness through positive pranks,” according to host Kevin Brueck.

In this video, the mark is hardworking waitress Chelsea Roff. According to the introduction, Roff has raised her little sister, overcome a “severe eating disorder” and used her experiences to help other people.

Roff’s co-workers say Roff absolutely deserves everything good that comes her way, and they are in on the prank. With the help of a few more accomplices, the prank is to give Roff her “best shift ever” by leaving unbelievable tips.

The results are a joy to watch as Roff moves from wanting to share her unexpected windfall with her co-workers to incredulity to completely losing any semblance of composure.

Break has conducted a handful of other “Prank it Forward” setups you can see on its website. According to the site, Break is donating $1 for every 1,000 views on the "Prank It Forward" videos to dosomething.org.
