I can see this prank could still work even though the ability to check time on our cells and other electronics all around us. Most clocks and modern electronics still have to be told if your is in a Daylight Saving Time zone, so this prank can still be pulled provided that you have access to the utility to adjust cellpnoe/PDA time zone. But it is getting harder to pull since correct time is so readily available in most ubiquitous appliances, and many are getting to be self aware of location.

Similar prank I played with my Aunt. My aunt used to love playing cards but was very particular to sleep before midnight. One night we all were playing cards and my aunt was checking the clock every now and then. at around 11.30 PM while she was engrossed in the play myself and my brother moved the clock back by half an hour. After each round the aunt used to check the clock. Every 15 minutes we used to reset the clock back to 11.30. This went on for almost two hours before my Aunt noticed that we were tricking her. You will imagine her face when she found it out! we ran for a safe distance ! But she was very sporty and took it all with a big laugh!

Memory chips must meet strict specifications for fast data transfer, reliability, and power consumption, so accurate characterization is required at every stage of design.
