Google Is Skipping Annual April Fools' Day Prank for This Reason

Google is not participating in April Fools’ Day, despite their long-standing tradition of playing pranks on the holiday.

The search giant announced that they will skip the fun due to the ongoing pandemic, according to a report on Tuesday (March 31).

“Under normal circumstances, April Fool’s is a Google tradition and a time to celebrate what makes us an unconventional company,” Lorraine Twohill, Google’s marketing chief, wrote in an email obtained by Business Insider.

“This year, we’re going to take the year off from that tradition out of respect for all those fighting the Covid-19 pandemic. Our highest goal right now is to be helpful to people, so let’s save the jokes for next April, which will undoubtedly be a whole lot brighter than this one,” she went on to say.

“We’ve already stopped any centralized April Fool’s efforts but realize there may be smaller projects within teams that we don’t know about. Please suss out those efforts and make sure your teams pause on any jokes they may have planned — internally or externally.”

Google has been pulling annual April Fools’ Day pranks on the public since 2000, when they created the “MentalPlex.” They’ve also feigned reports for human settlement on Mars and a “mic-drop button” for Gmail.

North & Saint West Planned an Elaborate April Fool's Day Prank on Kanye West

Kim Kardashian‘s children North and Saint planned an elaborate April Fool’s Day prank on their dad Kanye West…and it involved Kim pretending to be dead!

“[North] roped him into an April Fool’s prank yesterday that was ridiculous. She took ketchup into my bathroom, and she begged me to let her spread it on me, and on the bathroom, as if it was like a bad scary movie. Then she asked me to lie down,” Kim told Elle.

She continued, “I thought she was just playing, maybe that she was going to say I was hurt. No. She taught Saint how to fake-cry—she showed him how to do it!—and then she told him to scream ‘Mommy’s dead!’ Kanye ran upstairs and he was like, ‘Kids, this is not funny. This is not a good prank.’ I completely understand and I agree. But it did make me a little impressed that they planned something together, and they were getting along and having fun as a team.”
