Google Goes Big for April Fools

Posted By on Mon, Apr 1, 2013 at 1:59 PM

The internet is abuzz with April Fools jokes!

Every year Google attempts to out-do itself with a bigger, better, more ridiculous prank. Last year, they debut and 8-bit format for google maps. This year, they've released promotional videos for fake services including Google Nose, a smell-based search engine, and Google treasure maps, based on the long lost maps of pirate Willian 'Captain' Kidd.

Read more April Fools gags on CNN.

My personal favorite, other than Scope's bacon-flavored mouthwash which I think sounds great, is the announcement that after collecting their final entries, YouTube will be shutting down to review submissions and choose the best video on the internet.

Another good giggle is the announcement by Twitter that they will now be charging for the use of vowels in tweets. Gd jk, Twttr!
