The best April Fool’s Day pranks on social media – 2018

Another year and another April Fool’s Day! Here are some of the best April Fool’s Day pranks for 2018.

Sea Life Sydney Aquarium

We’re all for hot desking, and Sea Life Sydney Aquarium announced that they are providing staff with the option of a water desk! With the heat hitting Sydney this weekend, we think that this isn’t too bad of an idea!

ING

In a trend away from paying by phone (or watch), ING is making sure you can keep your card with you at all times, introducing the ING budgie smugglers – a new way to carry your money! This cheeky post (see what we did there), is on brand and recognises a uniquely Australian problem, where to keep your money when you’re at the beach.

IKEA

Always posting top April Fool’s Day posts, IKEA this year announced the release of their Australian-inspired line, including thongs, stubby-holder chair, magpie deterrent helmet, and a drop bear, all with their classic Swedish IKEA names.

Virgin Australia

Jumping on board the fitness train, Virgin Australia announced the world’s first in-flight cycling studio – you even score Velocity Frequent Flyer points for every kilometre you cycle! We also love how Virgin Australia was able to connect two company subsidiaries into their post – tagging Virgin Active and Velocity Frequent Flyer.

Jetstar

Get ready to get excited Karaoke fans! Jetstar announced that Jetstar Japan flights are including Karaoke onboard (if only this were true)! This is a perfect post for Jetstar to bring awareness to their domestic operations in Japan.

Bank of Melbourne

Get ready for the ultimate ball pit as the Bank of Melbourne announces that they are going to fill the MCG with purple balls for one day only! This post is very Melbourne orientated –  utilising a landmark and throwing in something fun (and unique) that people would want to actually attend, showing Victorian’s that the bank is locally focused.
