April Fools Day is just around the corner! Now is the perfect time to pull off some incredible pranks on your friends and family. Whether you’re looking to play a joke on your loved ones or just want to see how creative you can be, this is the best day to pull off some crazy stunts. Let’s take a look at some of the best April Fools Day jokes of all time.
The T-shirt That Spurned a Generation
For those of you who need a bit more of a backstory, about ten years ago, one of the biggest trends was born. Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok were just some of the platforms that blew up after being around for a few years as small social platforms. People started making videos to share with their followers and the trend grew. Nowadays, if you don’t post videos on one of these platforms, you’re probably wondering whether or not to buy a My Netflix button. The shirts helped fuel this trend and many people are sure to be wearing one on April Fools Day next week.
The Shoe-in Replacement
Nike was caught totally off-guard when consumers started replacing their shoes. According to Reuters, consumers spent over $500 million on a pair of shoes in the month before Christmas 2020 alone. This, of course, is a result of the pandemic and the fact that people are searching for comfort. The brand started making joke announcements surrounding this trend. Here are a few of their best April Fools shoe jokes.
- Nike Shoe-in Replacement – What size do you need?
- Nike Shoe-in Replacement – What color do you need?
- Nike Shoe-in Replacement – Why do you need a new pair?

Gimme a Break
Did you enjoy the James Bond 007 Locker Room videos that TikTok and Rooster started posting last year? If so, you’re going to love what’s coming next. The two brands teamed up to bring you a whole series of videos where men in various states of undress come together in a locker room to prank call people and laugh at their pathetic lives. The series was based on a real-life incident where four guys collaborated to prank call unsuspecting people in the middle of the night. If you love watching men prank call and embarrass people, then this is the perfect series for you.
Here’s the trailer for you to binge watch:
- Prank Calls With the Max
- Sober Calls With the Max
- Exhausted Calls With the Max
- Lonely Calls With the Max
The Pissing Mice
Even though it might not seem like it at first, Sony actually created a masterpiece with Pissing Mice. The tiny rodent creatures make multiple appearances in A.I. Artificial Intelligence. If you’ve never seen them, here’s a trailer.
- What is A.I.?
- The Future of A.I.
- Pissing Mice
It’s safe to say that Pissing Mice are one of the most popular pranks on April Fool’s Day. The creatures have been known to cause major property damage, so beware of where you place them. Plus, if you get caught, you’re in for a real pain in the ass!
King Cobra-Sized Snack Cake
Although this type of joke might seem easy to pull off, getting a giant, decorated cake and tossing it at someone isn’t as easy as it seems. To make matters worse, it’s nearly impossible to find someone who will eat a King Cobra-sized snack cake. The only way to find out if someone will actually eat it is to give it to them and see how they react. Here’s a video of one of the trickiest cakes that has ever been created. I wouldn’t recommend trying this at home, especially if you’ve never performed this type of stunt before.
This cake looks absolutely fantastic and it’s decorated very well. The only problem is that it’s way too big to eat. In the end, we don’t think that this cake will end up in anyone’s mouth. It’s a perfect prank cake.
The Jeeves Bot
What’s the best way to end this article? How about with a classic Jeeves bot prank? Here’s a funny video where a man pretending to be a computer-generated clone of Jeeves the dog. While the concept of a Jeeves robot might seem far-fetched, it’s not. Silicon Valley is filled with companies that make and sell artificial intelligence bots that can assist people with their daily lives. If you’ve ever read any of Alfred Hitchcock’s novels, you might know that he dedicated a chapter to telling stories about how easy it is to create robots that can think and act like humans.
As the world pursues smarter, more automated methods of doing business, it’s important to keep in mind the uncanny valley that lies between the digital assistant and the human spark that makes it all worthwhile. Just remember to be kind, don’t be mean, and most importantly, have a good sense of humor.
