Ah, the good ol' fashioned college prank. It's a staple of cinema from Animal House to Van Wilder to Revenge of the Nerds, it's a true staple of the college comedy genre - so it just makes sense that Monsters University would want to get in on the action as well.
In celebration of the April Fools Day holiday, the fictional homepage for the premiere scaring school featured in Pixar's upcoming movie has been hacked...by the rival Fear Tech. While the site was originally beautiful and blue, showing off picturesque images of the MU campus, all images have now been replaced with shots of FT's weird pig-looking mascot and the whole site has been painted with an orange coat. Also, clicking anywhere on the site reveals more graffiti as well as some ugly squeal sounds.
But that's not all the Monsters University action we have for you! In the mail today I received an envelope from the Office of the Dean at the School for Scaring, which includes an alumni newsletter, a bumper sticker, and even a pre-stamped envelope for donations (that are meant to be mailed to PO Box A113 - a Pixar inside joke). Check out a shot of the mailing below and click to see it full size.
Monsters University, a prequel to the great Monsters Inc., goes back in time to when Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sully (John Goodman) first met at scaring school and eventually became best friends. Look for the film in theaters everywhere on June 21st.
