Confusing prank reminds guys to warn girlfriends not to tan

What's the best way to really educate people about the effects of prolonged sun exposure? Pranks, that's how. Advocates in Belgium eager to raise awareness among young women decided to play a practical joke on several girls' boyfriends in order to get the message across in a roundabout way.

They sent five young couples on a sunny vacay but didn't tell the guys they'd also invited their girlfriends' moms. Then, after a long day of tanning, they pulled the "midnight switch." The girls sneaked out of bed and let their moms take their places, giving their guys quite a shock as they found themselves next to an older version of their significant other.

We think this literal wake-up will definitely have a prolonged effect.
