Maybe you know an April fool who would be thoroughly discombobulated by the sight of a head in a jar, or maybe you’d like to see what your own head would look like in a jar, or maybe you’ve just got some jars that you don’t know what do with? There are clearly lots of reasons why you might want to make this amazing Head In A Jar Prank by ingenious Instructables editor Mikeasaurus.

Using a photo editor, two pictures are blended together to create flat image of a head, which is then laminated and submerged in a jar. When the flattened image in inserted into the curved jar, along with the distortion from the water, gives the illusion of a decapitated head in a jar of preserving fluid.
