H&M April Fools Prank

H&M April Fools PrankH&M

Happy April Fools’ Day! Everything on the Internet is lie today!

You can’t trust anyone. Not Google. Not Sony. Not even Pornhub…which is now actually CornHub. And we don’t want to live in a world where we can’t trust a porn website. Companies’ April Fools’ pranks have been in full swing since the clock struck midnight, so just assume anything and everything you read on the Internet is not real. Which would make Beyoncédropping her album today a sick, twisted test of our sanity.

From H&M’s Mark Zuckerberg line to Chili’s revolting Molten Cake Margarita, here are favorite pranks companies pulled on the masses today.

1. Virgin America’s new logo

No delicate way to put this…it’s boobs. And the commercial announcing the fake new logo is expertly done.

2. H&M’s Mark Zuckerberg clothing line

The clothing company “collaborated” with the Facebook creator for a line of seven grey t-shirts and one pair of basic jeans. The tagline? “One less thing to think about in the morning.”

3. McDonald’s MmmBox

Everyone has a subscription box, even McDonald’s! Not really, but who wouldn’t order “The Ribster” box?

4. Grubhub’s new service

“First we delivered food. Now we’re delivering people.” Grubhub sent an email out announcing Grüber, which is their new service that allows people “who love both the smell of food and new car to enjoy the ride of their lives.” Look out, Uber! Not really.

5. Sony’s proton pack

Wanna bust ghosts alongside Kate McKinnon and Melissa McCarthy? Too bad. Sony isn’t actually selling proton packs.

6. Deadpool coming to VHS and Laserdisc

Ryan Reynold‘s hit superhero movie isn’t really pandering to millenniala and coming out on outdated technology. To be clear, we would totally buy Deadpool on VHS.

7. T-Mobile’s Binge On Up

T-Mobile’s ridiculous hands-free device would probably sell pretty well if they decided to market it. Netflix and Chill anywhere!

8. iRobot and Zumba’s ZumbaRoomba

This prank really stung. iRobot basically made a commercial for a real-life DJ Roomba, first created by Tom Haverford on Parks and Recreation. But it’s not real and we are pissed.

9. Tumblr’s lizard election

This actually makes more sense than our current election.

10. Sbrarro’s pizza scented candles

What would set the mood better than the smell of marinara and cheese? 

11. Google’s new delivery system

Google’s Gmail prank did not go over well, but their faux commercial for a parachute delivery system is actually hilarious.

12. Burger King’s Chicken Fries shake


13. Groupon’s Cat Reader packages

Another thing we desperately wished wasn’t an April Fools’ joke. “Cat owners can choose the reader and book that best fits their feline’s personality to put them in catnip and chill mode,” reads the fake deal.

14. BBC’s video store

“For every purchase you make on BBC Store, we will send you a free VHS straight to your door,” the network announced today. Can you imagine if people born after the 2000s got a VHS delivered to them? They will never know the struggle.

Happy April Fools’ Day, everyone! Be careful out there.
