8 April Fools jokes everyone truly wishes were real


C’MON, TEASING US with these is just cruel.

1. Tesco trampoline aisles

Tesco’s April Fools’ prank needs to happen, stat. Whatever about reaching the top shelves, imagine the craic you could have during the weekly shop.

2. Google Smartbox

Google will notify you when mail arrives in your mailbox, and it even has a built in spam filter. YES PLEASE.

3. DomiNoDriver

Imagine skipping the shame of answering a door to a Dominos delivery man in your pjs at 4pm on a Sunday? Ever feel the need to make up a housemate just so they don’t think that family meal deal is all for you? NO MORE. Domino’s April Fools’ was the DomiNoDriver, a driverless delivery vehicle.

It sounds dreamy:

It boasts a tree-hugging eco-electric Heatwave 2.0 system that carries more piping-hot pizza than ever before! That’s 400% more pizza thanks to 100% less driver. You do the math.

Keeping with pizza for the moment…

4. Pepperoni Underwear

Four Star Pizza have come up with edible pepperoni pizza underwear from him and her.


Do you want to start the petition or should we?

5. Tinder for Tesco

Tesco made up a new dating platform that would match you with people according to your basket items. Sounds like a dream to be honest.

What’s more:

The innovative platform will also match people based on their personal preferences such as whether they buy Barry’s Tea or Lyons Tea, Heinz or Chef Ketchup or Salt and Vinegar or Cheese and Onion Crisps. Customers can also upload their ‘deal-breaker’ data which will instantly veto potential matches based on ingredients they really dislike such as marmite or olives.

Too perfect.

6. Hailo’s piggy back service

You know the feeling. You’re not far away enough to get a taxi, but you’re too lazy to walk the distance. Let Hailo sort you out with a friendly piggyback.

7. AirBnB’s time continuum glitch

Browse listings from different time periods. If ONLY we could stay in them.


Mad for a bit of hunter-gathering? Or fancy catching a gladiator fight in the Colosseum? Sorted.

8. Alcohol crisps

From An Pucan in Galway. Now you can open up your jagerbomb crisps for the table while drinking your jagerbombs.
