Happy April Fools' Day… otherwise known as that one day every year where you shouldn't trust anything you read online. (Except for news that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now available to stream via FandangoNOW — that's totally true!)
Naturally various major brands came to play and prank — our favorites include GQ's George Constanza makeover (see above) and YouTube's #Snoopavision — but some movies (and movie stars) did get in on the fun, too.
Pixar decided to sort of troll itself in this amusing prank that also promotes the upcoming Finding Dory. We all know Pixar loves including Easter eggs in its films, but as Finding Dory director Andrew Stanton points out, there's one Easter egg that's been hiding in all the company's movies for decades and it's now being revealed for the first time.
Check it out below. Finding Dory hits theaters on June 17.
Following Nike's creation of real-life self-lacing sneakers as seen in Back to the Future II, Sony has announced with a new video that it has created a real proton pack, as seen in the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, due out on July 15.
Tom Hiddleston becomes a weatherman
While not technically an April Fools-related prank, it is pretty amusing to see Hiddleston — who's in theaters now starring in I Saw the Light — step in and attempt the weather on the local news. As you can see below, he shouldn't quit his day job.
Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder is directing a Star Wars spin-off after Justice League
Our friends at Screenrant decided to have a little fun by creating this fake news that director Zack Snyder is working on a Star Wars movie. They wisely used older news stories from three years ago that were actually true to help bolster their fake claims.
Star Trek ambient noise machine
Our friends at ThinkGeek forever rule April Fools' Day with their annual line of fake products… that occasionally become real products when enough fans demand they actually create it (see the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag).
This year one of our favorite fake products is the Star Trek ambient noise machine that helps put you to sleep each night with, as they cite, "the low thrum of familiar spacecraft exploring some corner of an as-yet-unknown galaxy."
