The Best of April Fools 2016


It’s that day again where you just can’t trust anything on the internet. Well, more so than usual, anyway. We’ve gathered up some of the funniest web pranks for this year so you can be on your guard.

As always, ThinkGeek offers a page full of fake gadgets. However, every year it seems at least one of the items stirs up the internet so much that it winds up being created and sold for real. What will it be this year?

You’ve heard about that new Star Wars series that Netflix has been producing and is coming this May? Of course not. That ought to be the first clue that this teaser from IGN is a prank. There is no way in heck that Disney could (or would) keep something like this under wraps. Still, we’d binge watch it till our eyes bled.
