What happens when you give Columbia students 11 rolls of tin foil…

Matt Jacobs, CC ’11, gave credit to the industrious schemers of this April Fools’ joke in an email:

The ringleaders were Laura Vican BC ’11 and Nate Christian CC ’11, Yujie Zheng SEAS ’11 and John Haney CC ’11 were their main helpers. ¬†Rachel Greenberg CC ’11, Laura Goodall CC’ 11, and Katie Montelione CC ’11 were the artistic designers/ moral support. Honorable mention to Oren Brecher CC’ 11 and Dan Iter CC ’11. The victim was me Matt Jacobs CC ’11.

    We did this to a friend just a few weeks ago. It took us about 12 hours with 3 people and 1000 square feet of tinfoil. Every book, action figure, pen, etc. was covered. It took him 3 hours just to take it all down.

    You can read about it, with pictures, here http://goo.gl/qsaKP
