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.

    @Anonymous 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
