With each passing year, it becomes increasingly difficult to pull off an April Fool’s joke that people will actually believe. There still is one way to fool even the most skeptical prank target, however. Read about how technology is the final frontier for 2014 April Fool’s pranks and beyond.
Let’s face it — the April Fool’s joke is old. And rightly so: April Fool’s, while not an official or national holiday, is in our blood. Historians believe that the celebration of the day might date back as far as 1392, when the notion of April 1st as a day of pranking others is ambiguously referenced by English author Geoffrey Chaucer in his famous Canterbury Tales.
Considering that the April fool’s “holiday” may be older than 500 years, it’s no wonder that our cynical world has grown wary of anything too out of the ordinary that takes place on April 1st. The only possibility of really fooling someone on that day is if their busy and stressed enough to have forgotten the day altogether.
However, if you’re looking to pull off a lasting April Fool’s joke, it is still possible. Thanks to modern technology, you can weave a web of illusion that will be so plausible that even the most distrusting among us will believe it as true.
