April Fools’ Day, or April 1, is a day when people all over the world pull pranks, make jokes, and just do what they can to fool others and get a laugh. It is always fun to prank around with your friends, but some of the best pranks are the ones that come from some of our favorite brands! Here are a few that gave us a big laugh this April Fools’ Day. We can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with next year!
Funny or Die: Dips
Will Ferrell’s viral comedy website got everyone believing that he was releasing hilarious looping videos featuring celebrities. While this would be a great idea, the concept was that the videos were less than 2 seconds long. He got stars such as Jennifer Lawrence, Britney Spears, and Conan O’Brien to participate and fool us all. Don’t worry, though, Will has released an apology for getting our short hopes up.
Planet Fitness: Reclinomax
Planet Fitness is known for saying it doesn’t like “gymtimidation.” It takes a casual approach to fitness so everyone can feel comfortable while they work out. Well they took that comfort further with their new Reclinomax: a recliner that has weights and equipment attached to make working out more comfortable. Honestly, we wish this one was real.
Oreo: Double Crunch
Known for its excellent use of Twitter, Oreo brand decided to go the simple route by only releasing a tweet announcing their new product. After the popularity of the Double Stuf Oreos, they went with Double Crunch: The same amount of filling as a regular Oreo but cookies that were twice as thick, for those hoping to get maximum cookie with their milk. This is unfortunately a hoax, but we can keep dreaming for it to come true.
Pizza Hut: Pepperoni Pilsner
The famed pizza brand decided to get its fans both excited and disgusted at the same time by releasing a fake commercial. Their newest product? Pepperoni Pilsner, made with real tomatoes, garlic, and pepperoni. The commercial was shot in a real brewery and even featured people tasting the new brew. Most people knew (and hoped) it was a joke, but a few of their fans are asking where they can get a case of this new concoction.
Rihanna Vs. Jimmy Kimmel
Jimmy Kimmel is known for pulling pranks that nearly everyone falls for. Some of his most famous include parents pretending to eat their kids’ Halloween candy, and making the world think wolves were at the Sochi Olympics. When she visited his show, pop star Rihanna decided it was Jimmy’s turn to be pranked. Along with Jimmy’s own crew, she snuck into his home while he was asleep and woke him up with strobe lights, blaring music, and threw confetti on him, followed by her jumping on his bed. Needless to say, the prankster was successfully pranked.
