It Took This Teen's Parents More Than 9 Months To Realize He Framed A Photo Of Guy Fieri In Their House

Mom is still not quite sure why her son did this. Welcome to 2017, mom.

Parents: If you did not already know, a popular thing that Young People of the World Wide Web like to do is replace your sentimental photos around the house with less-than-sentimental photos.

And place bets on how long it will take you to notice. Yes, they are trolling you in your own home.

In January, 18-year-old Kyle Roberts did the same. He told BuzzFeed News he was inspired after he noticed an empty picture frame sitting on a mantle, so he quietly inserted a photo of Guy Fieri holding a hot dog in it.

"Our house is littered with pictures on shelves and the walls," Roberts said, which may be way an empty frame would go unnoticed.

"I printed out the weirdest picture I could think of, while making sure it wouldn't be too obvious, and at that time it was the picture of Guy Fieri holding the giant hotdog."

He then shared it to Twitter as a meme, with the popular caption, "How long until my parents notice," not thinking anything of it.

But as time went on, Roberts was struck and amused by how unaware his parents were to the photo. After four months, in late May, he updated his followers that his parents "still haven't noticed."

"The office room is used quite often, so I knew that somebody would see the photo eventually," Roberts said. Still, in September, now eight months in, his parents "still have no idea."

But on Monday — nine months and 14 days later — Roberts said he overheard his dad asking his mom about "a picture in the back room.” He asked her if she was the one who framed a photo of Guy Fieri holding a hot dog.

Roberts said his parents were both so confused that he "stepped in and told them I was the one who had planted the picture back in late January."

He said his dad cracked up, and was laughing for awhile, while his mom remained "very confused."

(Mom, so innocent.)

He then updated Twitter and his tweet went massively viral. It's already been reshared more than 94,000 times.

Mostly because it's inspired a whole new wrath and group of children to attempt the same thing.

And inspired more advanced levels of trolling.

Roberts has since removed the photo of Guy Fieri from the frame. His dad still finds it hilarious. His mom is still confused as ever.

PSA (Parent Service Announcement): I'd probably do a casual sweep around the house. Y'know, just in case.
