Coolest April Fool Pranks

About seven thousand years ago when I was a kid, I remember reading about a gaming news about “Quake can be played in your television”. There was detailed explanation how to wake up at 6:00 am and tune tv into certain channel. Well, I did that and maybe like 6:15 I was still pondering why all I see is noise and could not play Quake there.

Well, later I figured out that it was an april fools prank.

Any cool april fool pranks you’ve seen/experienced/heard?

  1. Funny, there’s a project to port Quake 2 to the browser with pure HTML5 and JavaScript. Except this apparently isn’t April Fools, despite the developer blog entry being released on April 1.
