If you think our new product is too good to believe, you’d be right. April Fools! We always like to have fun here at FMG Suite, which is why we curated some of the best April Fools jokes that companies have played in the last few years. Check out some of our favorites:
Plenta and Micra sizes at Starbucks
The world’s favorite coffee chain pranked their visitors in 2010 by introducing two new sizes, the Plenta and the Micra. Plenta was a whopping 128 ounces while Micra was a minuscule 2 ounces. They also explained that the cups can serve multiple purposes, like a rain hat for the Plenta and a kitten dish for the Micra.
Purchasing the Liberty Bell
In 1996, Taco Bell announced that it was purchasing the Liberty Bell. In addition, the fast food chain was changing the name of the historic landmark to the Taco Liberty Bell. They hoped the purchase would help the national debt.
Last year, internet Retailer Amazon redesigned their website to look like it did in 1999.
Not exactly the redesign we recommend for our clients, but a great joke for the holiday.
In 2015, Google launched its new site, com.google. Users were greeted with a reverse image of Google’s logo and all their search results were reversed.
In 1965, the BBC announced their newest technology, Smell-o-Vision, with which viewers could experience the smells of the show they were watching right in their own living rooms. The prank went so far that individuals actually called into the station to confirm that they were able to smell coffee beans and onions through their television set.
Whether you’re filing your coworker’s cube with bubble wrap, disguising mayo as frosting, or covering the break room in Post-It notes, April Fool’s Day is a great way to embrace Spring with a smile. And who knows, maybe FMG Fax will be the next product on the horizon!
