9 of the most embarrassingly bad April Fools' jokes of 2015

Please. No more.

LOOK, WE CAN’T all be hilarious. But April Fools’ Day puts a certain amount of pressure on people to provide some laughs.

There have been some great efforts around the globe – but, as is to be expected, there were a few duds. More than a few, to be honest.

This complete let down from KISS FM in the UK

Yeah, they didn’t even try.

Marmite’s sick-making gag

No. Stop. NOOOO.

And Walkers’ “self-seasoning potatoes”

So are people supposed to buy and plant the potatoes? You can’t just half-do the joke, Walkers.

The BBC’s ‘job listing’


This terrible, terrible tie in with an upcoming movie release

Hollywood actor, Patrick Wilson, star of black comedy Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife, was today accused of murdering his best friend’s wife. Rather disturbingly, this shocking event has chilling echoes of Wilson’s most recent film Let’s Kill Ward’s wife, set to be released in the UK on DVD on April 13.

Has anyone asked Patrick Wilson how he feels about this? Anyone?

This ‘flavoured car’ from Fiat

We really hope they didn’t spend too much time on this one.

Oh, and then he tweeted it again later, in case his followers missed how hilarious he was:

Homebase’s rainbow paint


And Sam Smith’s complete lack of effort

Sam. Sam, Sam, Sam. SAM.
