April Fool’s Day Joke
April 1, 2012 by staff
April Fool’s Day Joke, Last year we showed you some famous and memorable pranks that worked, including the flying penguins introduced on BBC and Australia’s “metric time” announcement. But 2011 and 2012 have produced some other great pranks and we have many gems for you to see.
While leaders of the major political parties were canvassing the country during an election campaign, some reporters decided to have a little fun with the late Jack Layton and his trademark moustache. Reporters made their own moustaches and attached them to their upper lips with tape for an Apr. 1 press conference.
The Vancouver Courier reported last April the next phase of the city’s bicycle infrastructure may include an underwater tunnel. The tunnel would connect the downtown peninsula to the rest of the city and save cyclists from riding over the bridges. Cyclists would be able to see undersea wildlife at one part of their trip through the tunnel and even fill up their tires with air at another station. The Courier reported the tunnel would cost between $340 million and $420 million. While the plan enraged some, it would be great for cyclists and keep them dry for part of their commute in the damp and rainy city, the fake report concluded.
Last year YouTube claimed to have started 100 years prior. It said the homepage looked as it did back in 1911 and featured vintage black-and-white videos from the time.
