Brand pranks are the best, aren’t they? I love the humour that brands and services provide around the time of April Fool. However, there was one in particular, that happened a month prior that I’ll never forget. KFC’s #CleanEatingBurger.
This one had me in hysterics because I actually thought, even for a second, that it could be real. I mean, I didn’t think it was actually a cauliflower base, I just thought they made a bun look like that. 🙈 Only Judge Rinder can judge me. I’d like to point out that I quickly realised it was a joke, like after I had time to phantom-ly digest it (news and burger).
Okay, now that we’ve seen that one, let’s have a look at others brought to us by brands and services that we know and love.
#GoogleGnomate MORE LIKE.. As cute as gnomes are, I don’t think we need smart ones. I’m still trying to keep up with smartwatches… The only thing I like about this is that it’s a sassy gnome. I do think we need more sass. Google, phone gnome. #ET.
Another one from Google was Google Wind… Google Netherlands have unveiled Google Wind, which uses windmills to “blow all the clouds away from the Netherlands”. Whether you agree with this or not, it’s pretty cool of them to want to replace smart with… FART.
BMW announced ‘dDrive’… It’s a dog basket/bed thing which makes you feel like you’re driving on the open road.
If Red Bull gives you wings every day including April Fool’s Day, Coca Cola want to give you a lift – by adding helium to their cokes.
Krispy “Cream” née Kreme
So, like the CHEKE of Krispy Kreme announcing that they’re to change their name from ‘Kreme’ to CREAM because some of us in the UK don’t know how to pronounce it. That’s a bit rich coming from them…
Here’s one for the old Donald Fart of USA… If he wasn’t orange enough, he’s about to be TANGOED! Cheetos have of course developed a Spray Tan to make any old satsuma jealous.
If you’re bored of betting on land horses, you’re in luck, Paddy Power: betting shop, are launching the “Sea Horse Race” down under…
Boxers? Those are a breed of DOG, apparently. What all men need are a pair of men’s knickers, also known as ‘SNICKERS’.
These are all well and good, but I do have my favourites…
