April Fools Day Round-up

Its that time of the year again when companies tout outrageous product ideas to the general public, only to then to label it as an April Fools joke, a useful excuse to improve their brand awareness via social media. Some ideas actually seem pretty cool, the Virgin prank for example I would enjoy being a passenger in one of those!
