  • The best Corporate pranks to have taken place on this April Fool’s Day

When it comes to making fools big corporations are not far behind and their customers are not immune

When it comes to the 1st of April the entire world has one thing on their mind; pull pranks! Pranks are pulled on people regardless of any barriers. When it comes to pulling a leg big corporations are not behind but they pull some of the best pranks ever. Some of the best pranks by big corporations which have teased their customers are:

Google has long been known for its pranks and this year the tech giant delivered by converting its app Google Maps into a functional game of Ms. Pac-Maps. The Ms. Pac-Maps game will be available Google Maps for Android and iOS until the 4th of April. Last year Google pulled an even more elaborate prank with its Cardboard Plastic headset. Currently VR glasses are the tech world’s biggest gears. Google took advantage of this trend and introduced the world’s first actual reality headset and if you read closely you can understand the pun. The simple plastic headset were stated as compatible with ordinary smartphones and touted as waterproof with a 360-degree audio. The clear plastic headset would have made reality even more real.

T-Mobile following the example of Google decided to pull a prank based on headsets. The mobile company promised its customers it will release a superb headgear which will allow customers to binge watch their favorite shows and be productive at the same time. Later it was revealed to be a April Fool’s Day prank.

Last year another incredibly funny prank was pulled by H&M when they announced a Mark Zuckerberg Clothing Line. On a website H&M logo and Mark Zuckerberg’s face were used to troll the entire world. The prank was even more ironic as Zuckerberg does not wear anything other than basic T-shirt and jeans. The fake collection showed a line-up of blue jeans and seven identical grey T-Shirts.

In the spirit of being mischievous Samsung also decided to troll the world with its smart knife which was called the Galaxy BLADE edge. The tech giant went overboard while describing a smart knife in accordance to the Chef’s Edition special knife. The prank took place back in 2015 when it conceptualized the fake product in a blog post. The prank even went so far as to state the blade of the knife will retract before cutting the skin. As expected the Sci-Fi knife was nothing more than an elaborate hoax.

The Rickrolling prank is probably one of the biggest pranks to go down in the history of pranks and is still alive even today. The prank took place back in 2008 when the video-sharing platform linked all of the featured videos on its homepage to one particular video. And what a video it was; Rick Astley’s classic ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’. No matter from wherever someone logged in to YouTube the 1987 music video played that particular song. The prank is still alive and now known as Rickrolling.

Virgin Cola
Way back in 1996 Virgin Cola not only pulled a prank on the public but their rival company Pepsi. Virgin Cola campaigned their metal cans will turn blue when they expire to ensure consumer safety. Virgin Cola warned everyone not to buy blue cans just as Pepsi unveiled its newly designed bright blue can.

Hulu stated it will release a new service called “Hu” a form of abbreviated TV where shows will be cut down to just eight seconds so people can catch up with storyline in a short time. the company even set up several playlists on its own site and YouTube which showed shorten version of shows like Seinfeld, Black Sails, The Mindy Project, Empire etc.
