Best Viral April Fools’ Day Pranks!

In case you haven’t been bombarded with all sorts of ridiculous Facebook statuses, this is your friendly reminder that today is April Fools’ Day!

Carson and Producer Angie aren’t the biggest fans of this holiday, mainly because they’re both self-admitted control freaks, but they did share some of their favorites they pulled back in the day.

“I have two brothers and…I would put saran-wrap on the toilet and then put the toilet seat down so in the morning when they got up, they were all like blurry-eyed, they’d go to the bathroom and it would get all over!” Producer Angie laughed.

“I remember my sister once in high school on April Fools’ Day told my mother that she was pregnant,” Carson shared. “It really worked, obviously. My mom freaked out and then she said, ‘April fools!’ and somehow, amidst tears, they hugged it out.”

Big companies like YouTube and Scope are also getting in on the action, posting some hilarious (and fake) products in honor of the holiday.

One of our favorites for 2013 includes Google Nose BETA, a service which allows you to search for smells online via their mobile aroma indexing program.

Google is infamous for their series of April Fools’ jokes they pull off every year. Click here for a round-up of all the 2013 Google pranks.

Sprint announced the arrival of their Sprint Specs, which are glasses that give the illusion of eye contact so you can feel free to text and surf the internet on your mobile device and have everyone thinking you’re still paying attention to them!

People always say everything is better with bacon, so Scope jumped on the bandwagon with a new savory-flavored mouthwash.

LA Weekly got us all excited this morning when they announced the groundbreaking for a local NFL stadium, however, we discovered it was just a cruel joke when we read it was being constructed at the 405-10 Freeway interchange.

Finally, we all love our skinny jeans, but American Eagle Outfitters took it to the next level with their spray-on denim.
