April Fools' Day 2013

So it’s a day early, but YouTube already posted this year’s April Fools’ video, and I figured I might as well make this thread.

Here’s the stream for their nominee announcement, starting tomorrow at 9AM EST.

As for any other April Fools’ videos, news stories, and the like, post them here as they begin to crop up.

Should we put this in a different section? I think last year’s thread was in Meme Research.

This is just sharing April Fools stuff, not research for a possible entry. Should it come to that a seperate thread can be made.

I was looking at one of my videos and noticed it was nominated for this. Funny that only 100 people have viewed it.

Okay, I’m 41 minutes late to post in this thread, but I thought I’d note that we should be prepared for what the web does to u- wait a minute… Soundcloud is already there:

The Dropometer?

Can someone make an entry for AF2013? I already got Google Analytics telling me the ISS is watching my website.

Damnit, you beat me to it.

Please tell me that I wasn’t the only one who fell for it.

Google Maps have a treasure mode…prolly won’t compare to their 8-bit RPG map thing from last year though.

Deus Ex’s Facebook page said they were going to show off a new game called “Deus Ex: Human Defiance” TOMORROW (they used caps for tomorrow on their post). When someone said “i hope this is a new game” they said “It Is!”. They seem to be very enthusiastic about this, which leads some to believe that Eidos is pulling a prank, but they got the rights to Human Defiance about a month ago. We’ll have to wait to see if this is an April Fools joke or not.

That’s a very cruel joke.

They’re just reading video names and descriptions. I didn’t know what to expect but this is a tad… boring. Although they have just reminded me you can kill Ganondorf with a fishing rope.

They’re… still reading… the timer is 4:45:00… One of the presenters is eating pasta or something in the background… The other one looks like “kill me”. This is one of the most elaborate April Fool’s jokes ever.

Been watching the thread for over an hour, still laughing surprisingly often.

Incidentally, I just played LoZ:TP for the first time in March; the fishing line move was hilarious, I’ve replayed the final battle several times just for lulz.

Pretty funny Minecraft fake update today. If you feed animals too much they explode, diamond chickens, a pink wither boss, and horses that are only retextured pigs.

According to his Facebook page, George Takei has apparently cast as Jedi Master Ceti Maru in J.J. Abrams’ new Star Wars movie, which has been officially titled “Star Wars: Galactic Empire”.

True story.

Just returned, 6 hours in…
…THEY’RE STILL GOING?!

I think the true April Fools prank is on those two.
Other than that, has anyone noticed that they are repeating some nominations?

Did reddit acquire TF2?

Or did TF2 acquires reddit?

As the TF2 team puts it:

But realistically, because today is the International Day of Foolishness, anything we told you guys would just be met with suspicion. And when have we ever trolled our community? Never, that’s when.

And Youtube’s stream comes to a close. Now we’re just watching the presenters sleep. But after 12 hours of that, it’s a well-earned rest.
