5 Best April Fools’ Pranks Of 2019

It’s finally April Fools’, a date that embodies the beginning of Spring and celebrates how terrifyingly fast the year flies by. What’s a better moment to play with our feelings and make us laugh?

April Fools’ has become a fun way of making companies seem more approachable, making them spending money on campaigns that have no purpose whatsoever, and tricking the most innocent of Internet users. There’s not much of a point for April Fools’. It’s simply fun to see all of the things that companies make up, some better than others. Check out five of this year’s most original, gross and cool ideas for April Fools’.

Snake on Google Maps

Snake is the most iconic game from the Nokia era and Google Maps should consider keeping it on their app as a permanent and extremely entertaining addition. The company announced that the game is rolling out today and that it will remain there for the duration of the week. You can find Snake in the menu of the Google Maps app. To play, select a city and swipe to move your train or bus in your desired direction.

NY Bucket List uploaded an image of an gigantic In-N-Out sign a top of the Flatiron building. If you scroll through the comments you can see different types of people: those who believe the prank and are heartbreakingly excited, and the skeptics. If it were true.

McDonald’s new milkshakes

During every April Fools’ there’s a company that takes things too far. This year, McDonald’s takes the prize by introducing milkshake sauces, which they later pour on top of fries. It’s gross.

A Google software that allows you to speak to tulips

Google is known for their random and varied softwares, so it’s not far-fetched that they’d introduce a program that allows you to have conversations with tulips, a.k.a. your grandma’s dream product. The ad looks great, including different expert interviews and developers discussing the origins and design of the program. The one thing that raises a few questions is the fact that you can only speak to tulips. Why can’t you talk to other types of flowers? What’s up with that Google?

A Tinder feature that prevents lies

It’s a well known fact that men love to lie about their height, so Tinder, or April Fools’ Tinder, is taking measures against this and focusing on the well being of their matches.

Via Tinder:

“Itโ€™s come to our attention that most of you 5โ€™10ers out there are actually 5โ€™6. The charade must stop. This type of dishonestly doesnโ€™t just hurt your matches โ€” it hurts us, too. Did it ever occur to you that weโ€™re 5โ€™6 and actually love our medium height? Did it ever occur to you that honesty is what separates humans from sinister monsters? Of course not.”
