During her appearance on The Tonight Show the night before, Yara opened up about the longest prank she ever pulled.

“I was trying to figure out something that would last long [to pull on my brother Sayeed], so one time I was on a walk with my brother and he saw a wood chip that looked like a mouse, and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s a collageon, Sayeed,’” she shared. “I just made up a word. I was like, ‘It’s something that falls from the sky that looks like an animal.’ ‘Cause I was like, the more specific you can get, the better.”

Yara adds that “for two years, he swore this was like a really fancy art term. And we also went to a decently small school, so I was the cool sixth grader who got all of the fourth graders to believe that this was a word.”

“I was well into middle school when they realized [it wasn't true],” she explained. “I was in the car with him and I was like, ‘Remember when you believed in the word collageon?’ And I didn’t realize that he still believed in it to that day, and I gave myself away.”

See her appearance below!

FYI: Yara wore a floral Richard Quinn coat with Malone Souliers shoes.
