When I got back to work yesterday though, I noticed online that there had been a slew of really excellent April Fools day jokes from some of the world's biggest companies, going viral and catching thousands of people off guard. Here are a few of my favourites....
Richard Branson announces glass-bottomed planes
Google Maps Introduced 'Treasure Mode'.... Classic!
YouTube announces it's time to Shut Down
(This one is my absolute favourite by the way, if you have time to watch this video, you definitely should!)
And then to make the prank even more awesome, they followed up with this video:
To quote from an article I read in Time's website:
Two award presenters have been reading descriptions from YouTube videos ("nominees" for "best video") for the past seven hours. Live. Non stop. You can and should watch, it's deadpan performance art at its finest.
I can't… I can't process this level of commitment to a prank.
Oh, and if you're a member of my Church, then you may also enjoy this article, which actually had me going for a while :)
Hope you enjoy these pranks! And remember, it's only 364 days till next April Fools day... so it's probably a good time to start plotting.... muwahahahahah!
