April Fool’s Day is the day where brands both large and small unleash their best marketing pranks on their consumers, so we’ve rounded up our top five so far. These top five just edged out the competition so we thought we’d try to give you a laugh as you fend off real-life April Fools pranks in the office:
Facebook’s very own Miss Takes, built for you when you’ve had too many and really (like really) shouldn’t post that status or those pics. As stated in an article by Wordstream.com, “she is your designated driver when navigating social media while drunk” by using your location settings to signal when you need help. She will prompt you by asking the question “It looks like you’re at a bar. Would you like help?” and then trigger multiple choice questions like “I’m not drunk, I’ll prove it” or a truth or dare challenge.
Our favorite dare is to find a cop and ask for a breathalyzer test & if you actually complete the dare, she will lock you out of Facebook because you are officially “too drunk to Facebook”. End of story, good one Facebook, but don’t ever make something like this.
Next up are the new “Single Fries” by Burger King France, the first fries ever to be sold individually and made to order. Having been hand wrapped and treated with love, these single serve fries’ biggest benefit for consumers is tat now, your friends and family can never ask you for a fry ever again. Genius. Too bad it’s only for April Fool’s.
