Subscribe To Watch Gmail Blue, Scope Bacon And Other Hilarious Fake April Fools' Commercials Updates


Have you ever wondered what the inside of an Egyptian tomb smells like? Or a South American rainforst in the middle of a storm? Or Dirk Nowitzki’s socks after a double overtime playoff game? Google has. And that wonder has led the company to conceive the Google Nose, a brand new search feature that allows users to experience olfactory sensations from more than fifteen million odor-exuding people, products and places, at least if it existed. Unfortunately, it doesn’t—just like a whole host of random creations specifically invented to provide brief amusement on April Fools' Day.

As a rule, I’m not the world’s biggest fan of the holiday. I don’t really like creating or getting duped by fake news stories, but if a company is excited about participating, the best way to go, for my money, is with a custom video like the one Google created above. Such an offering provides a few laughs and is overtly fake enough that it won’t actually trick users into forwarding on false information, which is even known to happen with Onion stories.

Over in the main section, Katey Rich is updating a list of all movie-related April Fools' stories; so, I thought we’d do the same over in Pop with some of the more popular videos making the rounds. Some of the biggest companies in the world have gotten in on the action, and as I find more, I’ll add them to the next pages…

Here’s a hilarious one for Scope Bacon. We already put bacon on everything; so, why not make our breath smell like it? I’m not sure a scent would attract every woman, but it wouldn’t certainly attract hungry women…

YouTube’s submission into the April Fools' fray went live yesterday and immediately generated a ton of views, thanks largely to its hilarious premise. Basically, the video posits with a straight face that YouTube was created eight years ago as a contest to find the world’s best video, and the actual judging is about to begin, led by a group of esteemed critics including Antoine Dodson.



Car companies may have made plenty of strides over the years in making more energy efficient vehicles, but Subaru definitely isn’t at the point yet in which it has an automobile that runs entirely on methane. In fact, I would say the chances of it ever offering such vehicle are very low. Still, that doesn’t mean the amusing video can’t be enjoyed, however…



Have you always thought Gmail could be a little bit better but couldn’t quite put your finger on what change needed to be made? The answer is more blue. If every feature on Gmail was just a slightly different shade of blue, it would make the entire experience really come to life for the first time. The designers tried to do so years ago, but until now, they didn’t have the technology…
