April Fools wankery
« on: April 01, 2008, 06:49:05 AM »

It happens every year. The internet has a race to see who can pull off the biggest April Fools joke online.
Here's the best I've seen so far: http://movies.ign.com/dor/articles/863515/legend-of-zelda-movie-trailer/videos/legendofzelda_filmtrailer_040108.html
I expect most of it to die after a day so I want to see the best of it before it does.

Oh, thanks for reminding me that it is today.

ADDENDUM: Pizza Hut changing its name to Pasta Hut.  Even my spam mail thinks it's funny.

And, probably old, but click on any given "Featured" link on Youtube's front page.

Also, Blizzard comes out with no less than 4 quality jokes.

The thing I hate most about some of these April Fool's stuff is that sometimes the joke stuff looks far more interesting and fun than the stuff that's real.

What I'm trying to say is that I wish the Bard class was real.

You know they'd just use bots to hit every note perfectly.

You'll note that they sound like that in SSBB as well.

Virgle.
Funny enough, I fully expect Google to get in on this whole 'space thing' eventually.

Also, an especially unfair You Don't Know Jack episode.

if Google devoted as much time to finishing their stuff as they do to april fools jokes, they wouldn't have half as much beta shit.

Because Google uses "beta" the same way the rest of the industry does.

No, their meaning of 'beta' is more like 'we didn't really finish the interface for this but we got tired of programming so uh you guys can have it'

Yeah, the Virgle thing was all over work.

Too bad most of the employees couldn't see it since thier internet access is locked out.

XKCD's threw me off at first. If only because Questionable Content used to be in my bookmarks.
