A SWANSEA man spent the best part of 10 hours cov­er­ing his mate’s room in tin foil to “teach him a les­son”.

Scott Lewis, a soldier in the 1st The Queen’s Dra­goon Guards, de­cided to prank his friend Daniel Protheroe who had left his door un­locked at their bar­racks in Nor­folk while he was away on a ski­ing trip.

Mr Lewis, aged 28, spent around 10 hours com­plet­ing the prank, with the help of his friend Tom Har­court, who is also from Swansea, which saw the pair cover ev­ery inch of Mr Protheroe’s room in sil­ver foil.

From his bed, to the shower cur­tain, the TV and even the toi­let, ev­ery pos­ses­sion in the bed­room and bath­room was wrapped in the foil, in­clud­ing his toi­letries in the bath­room.

Mr Lewis said: “It took me and my friend Tom the best part of 10 hours and near enough 30 rolls of 30m foil.

“Dan was away ski­ing with the reg­i­ment over the hol­i­day pe­riod and he left his door un­locked so to teach him a les­son about kit se­cu­rity and lock­ing your stuff up we de­cided to foil his room and teach him a les­son to lock up next time.

“His re­ac­tion was pretty re­laxed as he ap­pre­ci­ated it more than any­thing when see­ing the at­ten­tion to de­tail after a few min­utes.

“It took him over three hours to take ev­ery­thing off and he still hasn’t com­pletely taken ev­ery­thing down as he’s liv­ing with what he needs most re­moved.”

Mr Protheroe, 24, from Port Tal­bot, said: “I wasn’t an­noyed, I was more im­pressed with how good it looked.

“I’ve never had a key for my room so I couldn’t lock it any­way.

“It took me nearly three hours to take it down. The bath­room was the most an­noy­ing bit to take down be­cause there was so much tape.

“I’m go­ing to get him back, karma is go­ing to bite him.”
