When life hands you twins, you make epic hotel pranks.
Mashable reports the father behind Twitter account Wefail decided to make the most out of the wonderful gift that is identical twin daughters. He tweeted the following image of his two precious children with an explanation that he employs them at various hotels to obvious ends.
The following post does feature some NSFW language, so shield your eyes if you are either sensitive to language or ever again want to walk down a long hallway at any hotel.
Another father chimed in that he likes to do the same.
As we have explained in a previous post, Stephen King’s “The Shining,” as well as its famed cinematic retelling, have a couple of real-life hotel landmarks: While Timberline Lodge offers the exterior for the film, The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park is the location so scary that it inspired King to pen his novel.

A few decades later, the story lives on in frequent re-runs of the movie on television and, it would seem, fathers joyously asking their twins to simply stand at the end of a very long hallway as unsuspecting travelers happen upon their presence.
The thought is hilarious to anyone who has ever seen the film and recalls the scene with the twin girls calling to the young protagonist Danny Torrance.
The laughter ends the moment you are on the other side of this prank, because that’s something that would make us swear off hotels forever.
