April Fools is pretty much our favorite holiday of the year, which is why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to help some of our favorite brands pull off some killer pranks. Check out our 9 “must happen” ideas below:
1. Snapchat: SnapchatRoulette — Stranger Danger (But Just for a Second)
SnapchatRoulette is the latest release from Snapchat, Inc. — allowing you to send and receive snaps without knowing where they are going or who they are coming from. What could possibly go wrong?
2. Uber Pool — Ride The Wave, On Demand
You never know when you’re going to need to throw an emergency pool party, impress your friends by doing a cannon ball, or just sit and ponder life while floating in chlorinated water. Good thing Uber just released UberPool – order one and a pool hitched to a truck will be headed your way in minutes.
3. Netflix: OITNB’s Wearable Ankle Bracelet — Making Incarceration Arrestingly Luxurious
Just because you’re in jail or can’t go more than 50 feet from your home doesn’t mean you should live like a prisoner. This trendy ankle bracelet has a pedometer to track your distance from your house, ApplePay for all your commissary needs, and even alerts you when parole officers or guards (#Pornstache) are approaching.
4. Nike: Nike Lounge Wear — Don’t Do It
Casual wear for couch-sitting and lazy-sundaying that will make you look like you could be an active human being… even though you’re definitely not. (Included: Sweat wicking technology perfect for intense binge watching of True Detective.)
5. PBR presents ZipCan: You Literally Can’t Drink It Fast Enough
Conveniently unravels with a single zip to get the beer out of the can as quickly as possible… so you can… see it before it falls all over the ground.
6. Tinder Platinum: Because Famous People Have Game, and You Don’t
If Tinder Pro isn’t cutting it for you and you can’t figure out why – upgrade to Tinder Platinum and select from a variety of celebrities to speak entirely on your behalf. Your profile image will automatically be replaced with Ryan Gosling, as he greets your swipe rights with his famous “Hey girl.” Drake will be all “I can’t get over you. You left your mark on me…” and stuff.
7. Chanel: Rich Nuns of Instagram — Rolling in Bills and Blessings
@Richkidsofinstagram is so 2014. Let’s cut to the chas(t)e — this new handle shines a light on those women who are as pure as the diamond rosary around their necks.
8. HBO (or TechCrunch!): Pied Piper launch — From T.V. Series to Series A Financing
Pied Piper, a fictional multi-platform technology based on a proprietary universal compression algorithm, has capitalized on it’s brand awareness and is pleased to announce it has raised $40,000,000 in venture capital. They will be opening an office in the Pavlina Plaza Shopping Center and beginning work on a universal compression algorithm. Coming Summer 2015.
9: Abercrombie & Fitch Patchwear: Next Level Distressed Denim
If ripped jeans aren’t exposing quite enough skin, try A&F’s new Patchwear line. Simply stick on patches of raw denim to your bare legs. It’s like a flash tat, but different. Available in high rise and boot cut.
