After four years of a prank going very well, wouldn't you be devastated when someone pulled the plug on it?
That must be exactly how Twitter user @_sarasmithhh felt when her brother-in-law ruined the prank for her.
She started it out in 2015...
I saw a tweet where a girl stuck a chip to the wall & her dad didnt notice it for weeks so im trying it w/ a cheezit https://t.co/U2emzDYsZn— ♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡ (@♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡)1448599494.0
Expecting it would take no longer than a day...
so far it's been a few hours. stay tuned to see how long it takes him to notice (it'll be a long time)— ♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡ (@♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡)1448599524.0
But then one day became ten...

It lasted through rearranged furniture.
day 122, dad rearranged furniture and moved a bookshelf in front of the cheez it so it had to be moved a few feet https://t.co/wbYLayT8w9— ♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡ (@♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡)1459707268.0
Through a move-out.
@GladiselV YES lmao I moved out a few months ago but I asked my stepmom just the other day if it was https://t.co/oAeNst8d7G— ♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡ (@♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡)1490498871.0
But it unfortunately met its end 1410 days later, on October 6, 2019, when @_sarasmithhh's brother-in-law "spoiled it" and mentioned the Cheez-It to her dad.
it is with sadness that i must announce that the gag is up. after 1,410 days - almost 4 years - my brother in law… https://t.co/k7JRDI6jpe— ♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡ (@♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡)1570393044.0
We later found out the cracker got so stale that it just crumbled and fell off the tack.
thank you to everyone who’s supported the cheezit & i through the years, im sorry my naive family didn’t understand… https://t.co/THH1vd4YbR— ♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡ (@♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡)1570393150.0
also i’m SO mad that we will never know just how unobservant my dad is— ♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡ (@♡ ｡･ﾟﾟ✧𝒮･ﾟﾟ✧｡♡)1570393263.0
But still, the internet is pretty upset with the aforementioned brother-in-law for spoiling it for everybody.
Way to go.

You played an important role in this family's dynamic, and you paid the ultimate price for it.
No updates have come about whether or not the brother-in-law has been effectively canceled, but we are hoping for swift justice on this case.
