Some April's Fool Hoaxes 2011

Aw, yesterday was quite the day, if you managed to survive the pranks in real life rest assured that on the internet it was no different. Hopefully I caught some of you on my own April's fool trap. But regardless, some companies actually did put thought and time into making their jokes and I feel that they should be mentioned here.

Blizzard has once again delivered a new prank this April's fool. Every year they tell the community about new changes on their main games. This year Blizzard made a video about adding motion support to one of their most competitive game, Starcraft.

Google also made a video about adding motion support. If those two videos weren't released on the same day I would say one of them got the idea from the other. Check out the life of google worker, an autocompleter.



Youtube rickroll'd us this year again! Not in the same style though, 1911 style. As you watch the video you can see the 5 different pictures that appear are referring to extreme viral videos. Annoying Orange, Bed Intruder, Swing Fail, Rickroll and Keyboard Cat!
