NDSU 1987 1988 Graduation pranks
North Dakota State University, Fargo, ND Graduation 1987 Part 1 & 2, Graduation 1988

A team of Electrical and Electronic Engineering graduates (EEE) secretly create a robot that crashes the graduation ceremonies. The robot with the blow-up doll was brought into the field house (gym) inside a cardboard box which was placed next to the band instruments. At the right moment (during a very important speech blah blah blah) it was driven out of the box and right in front of the podium. Helga, the blow-up doll was over inflated and blew up with a bang :-)

The 2nd year we knew security would be extra tight, so the blow-up doll was placed high up on a catwalk near the ceiling the night before. When lowered, it was right before the speaker's podium :-)
