North Farmington High School seniors once again killed it with hilarious annual prank student ID photos

Posted By on Fri, Sep 13, 2019 at 11:43 AM

The goofy teens at North Farmington High School took their annual prank student ID photos, and ooh boy, are they a doozy this year.

As in past years, the senior class had fun imitating pop culture figures and memes with their student photos — such as fraternal twins Andreas and Therese Diakovasiliou, who dressed as the creepy twins from The Shining.

"This is a tradition at North, so we go viral every year," Therese explains. "The senior class went viral for the past three or four years."

Therese says they bought one dress off of Amazon (for $30; "It's a good investment," she says) and shared it.

"Right after I took [my photo] we went to the back of the line and we changed right in the middle of the gym," she says.

"I was like, so embarrassed," Andreas says. "It was hard for me to do it. I tried to hold my laughter the whole time but it was so hard."

Therese says she has been waiting for this moment for a long time.

"I had this idea when I was actually a sophomore," Therese says. "At first [Andreas] was like, 'No, I'm not doing that.' And then like junior year came around he was like, 'Yeah, sure.' Then closer to ID day he was like, 'Yeah, I'm doing it.'"

There are more than 300 teens in NFHS's senior class, and Therese estimates some 90 percent of the students participated this year. You can browse them on social media using the hashtag #NFID20.
