These April Fool’s pranks by brands will crack you up

An official day to pull pranks! What more could we ask for? It’s that time around the year again when you have to question a whole lot around as the globe celebrates the fools on the April 1. From your workplace cringe-worthy pranks to silly stunts at home, it’s all legit today.

Rejoicing this day, some brands managed to grab on to the digital media to gag us and as they say, laughter in contagious, we would like to share some with you.

Urban Ladder

A home décor online store just got us all wound up with the world’s best job ever! Without over-exaggerating, one just couldn’t resist the urge to send it the resumes. To sum it up in one world, the job profile required, brace yourselves, SLEEPING!

Yes! You heard that right. The brand called out to the best sleeper out there for a job of Sr. Mattress Tester. Let’s give it to them; the brand fooled us with a pretty ingenious prank.

Ola Cabs

Popular cab brand went a little ahead to fool us with their #OlaRooms. Ola announced their recent innovation to hit the roads, Ola Rooms. Apparently, this ground-breaking new service permitted people to spend a comfortable night in one of their cabs.

They even went ahead to make a video convincing us. Good work Ola, you almost (not) got us there.


Fitness is definitely not a new mantra for people, but fitness brand GOQii thinks beyond you, this brand even cares about the animals and their fitness. Sounds bizarre? Of course, but the brand announced about this product on April 1, rings a bell now? The brand embraced the day of pranks and put up a video their social media page.

Samsung mobile

Global gadget brand Samsung takes up social media to acknowledge the global April Fool’s Day by staying in the trend. If 2015 was the year of velfies, 2016 commenced as the year of Gifs and Samsung celebrated the day of fools by releasing a Gif on their social media page.

Lakme India

Beauty brand got on to the April Fool’s Day bandwagon but instead of fooling their followers, they chose to share some behind the scene moments of fooling their team. And the prankster was no one but, the face of their brand Sarah Jane Dias

The cloths-wear brand build an entire website to make their customers all excited for their new product- only to fool them later. They hoaxed about a new product boasting about its feature, Spykar ‘Jean-ius series’ has Pocket charging, Anti-Tear capabilities & Zip-up reminder. The prank of the latest innovation also had a pre-order option to make it sound rather realistic.
