Apprentice tradie is brutally pranked by older workmates in initiation ritual

Posted: Monday, March 20th, 2023

A carpentry apprentice has been praised for laughing off an initiation prank by older workmates under the guise of a 'flexibility test', the MailOnline has reported.

The apprentice, Dan, was working alongside older tradies at a Queensland worksite during construction of a house frame.

The prank involved placing a long piece of timber through the back of the apprentice's shirt to see if he was able to regain his feet after being laid down on the ground, while keeping the length of timber in his shirt.

Once Dan lays down on his back, however, two older tradies use nail guns to secure the piece of wood to the floor, trapping him in place.

Instead of protesting, the apprentice laughs off the harmless prank, earning himself praise for doing so.

In a video posted to TikTok, several of the older tradies on the worksite can be seen convincing Dan that the prank was just a test of his 'flexibility'.

“Oh what the f***,” Dan says, laughing, once the nail guns secure him to the plywood flooring.

“It's a test,' an older tradie responds, as his workmates laugh.

Viewed around one million times on TikTok, many commenters applaud th apprentice for taking the stunt in the right spirit.

“Good on the lad for not taking it the wrong way and having a good laugh himself at his situation,” one user wrote.

“Jokes on them this bloke gets to just lay on the ground for the rest of the day,” a second wrote.

“Take the day off, enjoy laying down and getting paid for it,' a third wrote.

“If there's a 'test' on a job site that isn’t a drug or alcohol test, DONT DO IT,” another wrote.
