April Fools’ Day ads even cynics can appreciate

We know, everyone is too wise to be caught off guard by April Fools’ Day pranks these days (thanks, hoaxy Internet). So you can watch this PostTV compilation of some of the best attempts to trick the few gullible saps left, without the fresh shame of having fallen for them:

From Samuel Adams's "helium-infused beer" to Southwest Airlines' new route to the red planet, here are some of the best spoof advertisements released this April Fools' Day. (Gillian Brockell/The Washington Post)

 

This year’s new “offerings” ranged from from low budget and completely unbelievable (Southwest’s new service to Jupiter), to elaborate and highly produced, like Google’s “Emojify.”

 

And while even the most gullible probably caught a whiff of pranksterism in the “Eau de Cheeteau” ad, who doesn’t appreciate a good Cheeto-rain gif?


What was the best prank you saw on April 1? Tell us about it in the comments or tweet it to me at @ngjennings. I promise not to judge if you fell for it.
