The senior class at a San Diego High School put a new spin on their school's old senior prank tradition.
When school faculty arrived at work last week, they found an elaborate, 16-foot-tall, human hamster wheel sitting in front of campus.
Senior Corlin Palmer thought of the prank one day while watching his pet rabbit running on a hamster wheel.
Palmer rallied 55 other seniors to raise $900. It took them three weeks to build the giant human hamster wheel.
"I thought that the principal or someone would suspend me or at least be angry," Palmer said.
“I was greeted this morning by our custodian who said the seniors had finally pulled their prank. He had a big smile on his face,” said Point Loma High School's principal Barbara Samilson.
Samilson called the safe, non-destructive senior prank “creative” and “ingenious” .
He said the seniors had a great time taking the wheel for a celebratory spin during lunch.
