April Fools Day is great! I think we all can agree. It’s the one day of the year you get to play pranks on the unsuspecting and not be held accountable for your poor taste. Mostly it’s ladies pulling the old fake pregnancy gag, men with the cheating bit, or simple office pranks like the air-horn under the chair. Classic pranks that work flawlessly almost every time and are usually only funny to the prank-er not the prank-ee. Hey, at least someone’s laughing!

In years gone by the stakes have been raised and the pranks keep getting grander and grander. April Fools Day also marks an opportunity for savvy marketing pros and brand managers to cash in with some tom-foolery of their own and gain viral exposure from simple minded people on social media. This year has been no exception. In fact here’s a few April Fools announcements that caught our attention.
