File this one under "bizarre, but brilliant."

Kevin Manion, of Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin, pulled a prank on his parents by gradually replacing photos in the family home with pictures of actor Steve Buscemi to see how long it would take them to notice.

His sister, Clare, shared some photos of his prank on Twitter earlier this week, and the post was retweeted almost 30,000 times, including by movie director Judd Apatow.

According to Buzzfeed, it took the siblings' father two days to notice the switches, and their mother FIVE days.

"She was in the kitchen and could tell something was wrong with my brother’s senior photo, like the colors were wrong, and his head was too big, so she walked over to it and started laughing so hard," Clare Manion told Buzzfeed.

Kevin Manion appears to have been enjoying his sudden internet fame after his prank was picked up by news outlets across the country.
