It may be the stuff of fantasy for some, but it came as a bit
of a shock to one couple to discover cold beer pouring out of
their household taps.
Russell Brown (31) and his wife Bronwyn came home to find all
of their kitchen and bathroom taps - even the shower - were
no longer hooked up to the water mains, but a cluster of beer
kegs under their central Auckland home.
The prank was carried out by Russell's younger brother, Sean
(29), with the help of beer brewer Tui, and a host of
The gang set the house up with hidden cameras to capture the
surprised looks on the couple's faces as they tried to wash
their hands and pour a glass of water. A frothy, cold beer
came out of the kitchen taps instead.
Beer company Tui - known for its tongue-in-cheek
advertisements - came up with the idea and offered it to the
tradesmen to find a willing prankster to take part.
