Michael, a Public Storage fan from Weston, Florida, pulled the ultimate prank on a friend looking for love. After taking him on an adventure to meet the girl of his dreams at their local Public Storage, the joke is ultimately on him! Watch the video to see how it all ends on YouTube.

Dozens of entries poured in from Public Storage employees, customers and fans since the company opened up the contest earlier this month. After careful consideration, the company announced three finalists—a group of Public Storage employees, a customer and a fan— on March 23, 2018 to have their hilarious jokes and pranks posted on the company's Public Storage YouTube channel.

According to contest rules, their fates were then in the hands of YouTube viewers. As the finalist video with the most views by 9 a.m. (PDT) on March 29, 2018, Michael's was named the winner.
