A prankster has covered his housemate’s bedroom including the walls, bedding and door in 99p Christmas wrapping paper within three hours.
Robert Duff, 25, was told by his friend Dan Elsom how he does not like people to go through and touch his things and decided to have a little fun wrapping up his room in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire.
In the clip, he says: ‘I’ve decided today on my day off that I’m going to wrap my housemate’s room with wrapping paper.’

He then jumps to the front door which opens on to a starry-paper laid wall.
Finding the prank extremely amusing, Robert captions the video with lyrics: ‘It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.’
The walls are covered in a bright fuchsia pink paper which is intensfied to a deep red by the light.
Seconds later, the camera scans across four photo frames which are perfectly wrapped and finished off with gold gift bows.
Robert clearly does not do things half-heartedly as every surface appears completely covered.
Their flat’s windows are perfectly framed, as well as Dan’s motorcycle helmet and pillows in the glossy paper.
Dan, who appears blissfully unaware, then opens the wrapped door to his room.
He turns on the lights to reveal luminous paper-clad walls and struggles to hide his smirk.
Dan rubs his forehead in disbelief before he and another friend jump on to his wrapped bed.
Robert told the Mirror how he had the idea a little while ago but was waiting for the right moment.
He said: ‘I had the idea a little while ago but obviously had to wait for the Christmas period and a day that I knew Dan wouldn’t be in the flat.’
Dan added: ‘I’d have normally been annoyed at him for messing with my stuff, but I was just so impressed with the sheer effort and detail, I had to laugh.’
