Every year I think I’m going to plan for a fun April Fools thing at the JibberJobber level but two things happen:
- I run out of time – I usually have a DOH moment the morning of April 1, realizing I didn’t think of or plan for it in time, and
- I don’t want to confuse – My stuff is confusing enough already… and I haven’t come up with a non-confusing, on-brand prank that would be funny and not drive people away.
So I do… nothing. Which kind of bugs me, because I like pranks.
Here’s a list of fun pranks companies did, collected by TechCrunch. The list can take some time to go through, and while I don’t intend to distract you from your work or job search, I thought I’d pass the light-hearted humor on 🙂
Check out pranks from Google, TechCrunch, Kodak, TripAdvisor, Ben & Jerry’s, Indeed, Box.net and more here.

That Google-Topeka gag was pretty good, had me going for a while. I kept asking myself “why would they change their name?” I saw it first thing in the morning and clicked on the new logo image which brought me to the press release. That was well played, good times!
I didn’t see it (I miss things like that :p) until I read the post… my thought was “what a great day for Topeka!”
