6 Best pranks for April Fools’ Day 2016

Considering how fast time passes, it’s easy to forget that it’s the first of April and hence, that means a day where a lot of unbelievable (and some believable) things are actually pranks and jokes. Here is a couple we stumbled upon and had to do a double take in disbelief. (Well done, Benefit.)


1. Benefit Cosmetics’ first ever beauty supplement


It’s super easy to get strong, stunning brows with Benefit Cosmetics’ new you GROW girl beauty supplement! Wait, what? Yes, that is exactly our reaction when we scrolled through our Instagram feed and saw this Instavideo. 


2. Lexus introduces Velcro seats

Lexus wants to create a firmer bond between their cars and the drivers. How? Two words: Velcro seats. Of course, it doesn’t just involve the car; the driver would also need to wear the other part of the Velcro side on his or her back. We’re not sure if that’s in season now though. 


3. Google Cardboard Plastic gives you actual reality

Since a lot of brands have been using their Google Cardboard product, the company must have decided it was time to release a new model—one that can deliver both a crisp and clear video and audio quality. Almost like it’s reality.  


4. Coles Australia is bringing in hover trolleys

Say goodbye to squeaky and faulty trolleys that are difficult to manoeuvre because: Hover trolleys. Apparently, it can even hover back to their bays automatically. 


5. ASOS launches a wedding chapel

They already have a bridal collection but to bring it a step further, they decided to offer a special wedding package where you can get a full marriage ceremony held on their catwalk, hot models to be the ushers, a team of florist to create your dream flower arrangements, a Saved Items page for guests to purchase your wedding gifts, and of course, the bride and groom attire. Sounds too good to be true, right? 


6. Groupon Malaysia has a special deal to beat the heat


A deal not to be missed! Book now & first 500 customers get the ‘Ultimate Maharaja’ treatment >> #BeatTheHeat

Posted by Groupon on Thursday, March 31, 2016


It’s HOT and Groupon Malaysia has put together an exclusive deal to help: Groupon’s Maharaja Anti-Heatwave Treatment. Two Maharaja Manservants or Maids will go to your selected location and help cool you down with a fan of your choice. (Actually, we’d have preferred the unicorn deal from a while ago since we missed it.)
