Google, as a part of its April Fools Day pranks, has started David Hasselhoff photobombs. It brings you this fun celebrity addition to your photographs as a small gift of sorts.
It is called Google+ Auto Awesome and it is a cool and funky platform by the search engine giant. Your photographs, whether snapped on top of the Eiffel Tower or at a fearsome spot on the Grand Canyon, will have David Hasselhoff making a surprise appearance in them.
"Today we’re announcing Auto Awesome Photobombs. What’s more fun than Benedict Cumberbatch photobombing U2 at The Oscars? Or Michelle Obama at The White House? A good photobomb can turn an ordinary photo into something special and put a smile on your face. Now with Auto Awesome, celebrities can make a spontaneous appearance in your pictures! We’re starting with +David Hasselhoff naturally, everyone’s favorite crime-fighting rockstar lifeguard," states Google in a G+ Photos post.
For that of course you will have to leave some space for the Hoff. All it takes is a celebrity to make out a normal photo into a supernormal phenomenon. And David Hasselhoff is just one among many who will feature on a menu for people looking to add some addictively funny stars to their pictures.
The pictorial example of the Hoff doing all sorts of crazy stunts in the context of your personal image will make for a memorable and somewhat eccentric experience.
"To get your own photobomb, upload a new self portrait or group photo with friends, and leave a little room for The Hoff. He might just make a surprise appearance. :-) P.S. You can also mention +David Hasselhoff in your public posts and comments. If you’re lucky he’ll add some awesome to the conversation," explains Google.
Google has several other examples of April Fools Day hoaxes which will entertain the ordinary people to no end. Other than the Pokemon Maps game there is much more stuff which will keep the nitwits preoccupied.
Each country is given its own April Fools Day prank. Japan has one for example. The photobomb featuring the Hoff is really hilarious and the rest of the fun and games are a source of extreme interest and meaningful light entertainment.
In a world where people take themselves too seriously and often end up as serial killers in the process, such small jokes that provoke tittering and laughter are a Godsend. Google has always had a policy of child-like creativity that it has jealously guarded against the encroaching world of dull, formal and normal adults.
The colorful headquarters with its blue, orange, green and red theme suggests a Disney-like attitude to both work and play. In fact, at Google work is a form of play since all the employees are artists of the first rank.
