Burger King announces a Chocolate Whopper, Pokemon Go goes 8-bit, Google Maps asks "Where's Waldo?" and so much more.
As usual, the internet was awash with April Fool's pranks, even as the day was shared with Easter Sunday. Many corporations shared new advertisements for their fake products, like Burger King's new Chocolate Whopper and Redbox's exciting Walk-Up Movie Theaters. Pokemon Go went 8-bit while Google Maps is playing "Where's Waldo" and poor Rogen is losing his independence.
According to a statement received by Variety, "Seth Q. Rogen has entered into a lifetime deal to transfer full ownership of his personal autonomy to Netflix, Inc." Right there they screwed up, though, as Rogen's middle initial is A. Nevertheless, the actor had no problem with it. "As a general rule, I don't really 'read' anything before I sign it," he said.
Pauly D took control of his own prank, posting a gallery to Instagram teasing that he had a new haircut. "Welp I finally did it, I CUT MY HAIR!!!!" he wrote. "I cut Off My BlowOut!!!" He then put up a picture of his so-called new 'do next to Leonardo Di Caprio from "The Great Gatsby" before letting his fans in on the joke.
There are way too many April Fool's pranks to keep track of again this year year, but we've gathered some of the best below.
