Positive Pranking With The Vlogbrothers

This is so cool! John Green of the vlogbrothers does some "positive pranking" by leaving Tootsie Pops in people's mailboxes as a sort of "reverse prank". John Green and his brother Hank upload videos to each other every other day to Youtube that get tons of views (almost 94 million to date). John does this in order to lower the problem of worldsuck just a little bit more.

His call to action to the Nerdfighters, is for the people who follow the vlogbrothers who are all for awesome. You can check them out at the Nerdfighters blog.

Here's John's note: "Hello! Your home has been TP'ed, which--for today, at least--means that it has been Tootsie Popped. These Tootsie Pops are your for the licking (and/or biting) not as a part of some marketing campaign but because of an initiative called Positive Pranking started by the author Amy Krouse Ronsethal with the help of the nerdfighters, an Internet-based community of people who seek to decrease the overall worldwide level of suck. Please enjoy, and if you're so inclined, start your own positive pranking adventure. You can find out more at

Best wishes,

John Green"

If you're looking for Tootsie Pops, you can pick them up at fairly cheaply or shop locally. It doesn't have to be Tooties Pops, it could be just about anything. I was thinking that maybe you could even buy Halloween candy and do some positive pranking. The limits on this are endless!

Here's a link to Amy Krouse Rosenthal's blog. Let her know what you think about this idea.

And below she describes her new version of ding-dong-ditching:
