If you thought the news day seemed kind of weird, now you know why! It's April 1st, which means the internet is full of companies trying their best to get you to like them with harmless, but more often than not annoying "pranks."
I don't know about you, but I used to be obsessed with April Fools day until I realized that 1) I'm not funny, and 2) no one likes April Fools. So now I'm just going to show you the good ones so you don't have to suffer through "funny" corporate hot-takes and borderline aggressive fan service. No, we wouldn't do that to you.
We've rounded up the ones that are actually good or funny so you don't have to worry about being too bothered! Because we're cool like that, and secretly, we really really want you to like us too.
So throw on some Rick Astley and enjoy the 15 best April Fools pranks from this year.
Let's start with one we've all been waiting for.

The LA Times pokes some fun at New York.
