If you’re looking for a colourful Friday afternoon prank to play on your boss or you’re just keen to relive some childhood memories, maybe you could take some inspiration from the staff at Legoland California.

But if you’re planning on building a life-size Lego Volvo XC90 before knock-off time however, you’d better get cracking.

This model is made from 201,076 Lego bricks and needs to be moved by a forklift.

A detail that these Legoland workers were made well aware of when they decided to swap their boss’s car with a model from the amusement park.

Legoland employee Tim Petsche was reportedly the mastermind behind the prank, which was played on none other than the park’s general manger, Peter Ronchetti.

As the video shows, Mr Ronchetti saw the funny side and went along with the joke when he saw the camera rolling, potentially because he was happy with the trade up from his XC60.

“We have a very fun, creative team here at Legoland California and it really was the perfect prank,” he said later.

“I can tell you that I won’t leave my keys laying around ever again.”
