Prank-O (RynArik)

prank-oArik Nordby and Ryan Walther hope to prank the Sharks when they pitch RynArik, a re-named version of their business called Prank-O, in episode 1012, the Shark Tank 2018 Holiday Special. The domain was just purchased in August, 2018 and it redirects to the Prank-O website. The domain name, and business name are a mash-up of the guys’ first names.

Prank-O is an arm of 30Watt, a self-described “alternative humor products brand.” They sell novelty items, but the bread and butter of the Prank-O business is their Prank Packs. These are empty boxes with ridiculous “products” on the outside. You buy the boxes and put a real gift inside, but when it’s first unwrapped, the gift recipient doesn’t know what they’re getting.

They products on the box are outrageous, infomercial gone haywire presentations. They have a “My First Fire” gift box that has everything a child could want to start his or her first fire. “Included” in the imaginary kit is an 18 inch fire ring, a poker, 4 endura logs and an 8 ounce fuel can (fuel not included). The child in the picture on the box is staring at the flame with glee and the caption reads “explore the wonders of fire lighting.” Another box features a make your own ear wax candle kit to “create a candle as unique as yourself.”

There are dozens of equally hilarious and absurd “products” in the catalouge. Each empty box costs eight bucks and they’re designed to get a laugh. 30Watt is actually a big business, Prank-O is just a piece of it. They have novelty products in major retailers nationwide and they partner with the Onion, Some ECards, Target and many more. It’s a BILLION dollar business, so they may not need a Shark, but they sure would like to prank them.

Prank-O Shark Tank Recap

Arik and Ryan will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Barbara Corcoran and Daymond John that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Prank-O will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
