|In theory this was going to be a great shoot. I had the idea to let people know what to do if they happen to get dish washing liquid in their dishwasher. Everyone agreed it made sense for abigslice so Kenneth, my assistant, and I, Sam the photographer began to ready the details.
We rented a kitchen studio and covered the floor with a big blue tarp. We put the liquid soap in the dishwasher, and in a matter of seconds suds started billowing out. What Ted didn't know was over the course of the past few days we had rigged the dishwasher to spew out foam whenever Kenneth pressed a button.
Ted arrived and we began to discuss what I was looking for. "First get down and see if you can figure out the problem." So far so good.

|Kenneth hit the button. Foam sprayed all over Ted. We fought back the laughter.||"No really get down in it. Find out where the suds are coming from." Kenneth hit the button again. Bingo. Ted couldn't see anything. Kenneth started rounding up the crew.|
|"Maybe you should take that shirt off. That would look more realistic, right?" Foam was shooting out all over the place.||"Just take off your pants before you ruin them. What we'll do is shoot you from the waist up." Crew members of the TV station where we rented the set had begun to gather in a separate space.|
|"What if we have Ted lie on his back." "Great idea", says Kenneth. Ted lies down in the soap, on his back, without complaint. Thinking we are all really working to get the shots we need.||Ted is covered in wet soap and very slippery. But trying to do everything we ask.|
|Everytime he moves his underwear slips further down. But he thinks we are alone, and he is only being shot from the waist up.||But in reality about 30-35 people were watching on a big closed circuit video monitor in the next room. I tell him to get up and towel off, then we'll try one more position.|
|I handed him a towel. "Lose the tighty-whities they are just in the way and they're about to fall off anyway. No one will see your business."||The briefs fall to the ground and we have him. Ted is butt naked, covered in soap on closed circuit TV. This is going to be our best prank yet.|
|"One last time, really get into it". While Ted was lying on the tarp completely naked, Kenneth went to get all of the crew member who had gathered. I picked up all of his soapy clothes and towels so he would have notheing to cover up with.||On the count of three everyone yelled "You've been punked!" Ted was a great sport and rolled over laughing.|
|He could not believe he fell for this.||Our victim - one last soapy shot.|
