The best April Fools' pranks this year
After the crazy events of the past year we all need a good laugh, and many companies are trying to put a smile on our faces with their April Fools' Day pranks.
Here are some of the best ones so far.

The sandwich giant wants us to believe they have a "coriander cookie" being launched in Aussie stores today. Pull the other one mate.
Boost Juice caused fury by announcing that their iconic Mango Magic smoothie would no longer be available.
Deliveroo tried to pull the wool over our eyes, saying they had a technological breakthrough which gives pets the ability to order food for their owners.
Overseas, Burger King announced they'd be putting everything on sourdough - even their milkshakes.
Chobani Australia announced the release of a chilled face mask range made with yogurt and rich in active ingredients that help naturally exfoliate and moisturise the skin.
Ikea claimed it was introducing a range of outfits for dogs.
Volkswagen of America "accidentally" posted a press release on its website announcing it would change its name to Voltswagen to promote its push into electric vehicles.
We know, 66 is an unusual age to change your name, but we’ve always been young at heart. Introducing Voltswagen. Similar to Volkswagen, but with a renewed focus on electric driving. Starting with our all-new, all-electric SUV the ID.4 - available today. #Voltswagen#ID4pic.twitter.com/pKQKlZDCQ7— Volkswagen (@VW) March 30, 2021
South Australia tourism advert
A racy new tourism campaign for South Australia - which invites Aussies to "go down south with your mouth" against a crimson-tinted image of a vineyard - is being met with disbelief and suspicion that it may be an April Fool's prank.
Surely this isn't real, South Australia 😄😆 pic.twitter.com/KpWGlYN2k6— Alan Baxter (@AlanBaxter) March 31, 2021
