For the ingenious prank, McGinn put on a scary mask and hid under the table with a hole in it and covered by a foil pan. When each player lifted the lid, hoping to find some delicious grub, he found a growling monster instead. 

In the spirit of fairness, those who got punked sat quietly while new unsuspecting victims approached the buffet. That's what teammates are for.
