Dad And His Identical Twin Daughters Like To Freak People Out

Isabella and Poppy are 4-year-old identical twin sisters, and they are already master pranksters!

Their dad, Martin Hughes has been helping them cause mischief, he says that he had ideas about how to mess with people the moment they were born.

“As soon as we found out we were having identical twins I thought The Shining. As they’ve gotten older and we can travel and stay in hotels, it was a given that I’d get them to stand holding hands in the hallway for a joke.” 

Now that the girls are old enough to stand still, Martin took the opportunity to photograph the creepy moment when their family recently went to stay in a London hotel.

Hughes said that while the girls are too young to understand the joke, they enjoy doing it regardless.

“They’re too young to leave there to spook people directly but when we’ve had them do the pose then stood back and someone’s turned the corner they’ve gasped and gone a little green — ‘Oh god!’”

“I jokingly taught them ‘come and play with us’ not long ago and now they do it around the house while holding hands and standing still. They’re going to love Halloween in a couple of years.”

Martin posted the spooky hallway pictures onto Twitter since it was “too good a photo not to tweet.”

Twitter users thought it was great!

In amongst these fantastic responses, Martin says he has gotten some weird replies…

“Someone actually argued that demons are real and it’d legally be my fault if the girls were hurt when someone thought they were actual ghosts. … Those people are way scarier than the girls, and in future maybe I’ll stand with them dressed as Mr. Grady for protection.”
