Happy 21st birthday Laquon Treadwell ... here are 60,000 bags of fruit snacks.

The Vikings' 1st round draft pick was given a little initiation on Wednesday, as he was the victim of a prank on his "rookie birthday."

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and tight end Kyle Rudolph were behind the prank, filling Treadwell's SUV with Welch's Fruit Snacks – 60,000 of them to be precise.

Here's the initial reaction filmed by Treadwell himself.

The tricksters posed proudly by his Range Rover admiring their handiwork, before Treadwell arrived to find his ride home temporarily out of action.

SB Nation did some math, and calculated that if he ate three bags of fruit snacks a day – it would take him 54 years to finish all of them.

Fellow receiver Cordarrelle Patterson took some footage of Treadwell returning to his car (ignore the naughty word at the bottom).
