A seventeen-year-old high school senior from Michigan named Brendan Gatward played a prank with his parents. Little did he know that his prank would become a trending topic on the Web. It took his parents ten minutes to figure out what was happening, he tells BuzzFeed. He added, “I was just playing a small prank . . . and it blew up. I’m glad I gave a bunch of people a good laugh.”
Today’s genius teen is Brendan Gatward.

To verify the text prank, Gatward sent a picture of his dad with his phone having pranked to BuzzFeed, but his dad doesn’t want to be in the public eye; so perhaps, we’ll have to respect that.
