The best April Fools' pranks this year

After the crazy events of the past year we all need a good laugh, and many companies are trying to put a smile on our faces with their April Fools' Day pranks.

 

Here are some of the best ones so far.

Sydney Trains

Commuters making their way to work in Sydney were asked to be on the lookout for a horse running wild on the train network.

 

Subway

The sandwich giant wants us to believe they have a "coriander cookie" being launched in Aussie stores today. Pull the other one mate.

Wouldn’t want to dip that in my tea anytime soon.

Volkswagen

Volkswagen of America "accidentally" posted a press release on its website announcing it would change its name to Voltswagen to promote its push into electric vehicles.

 

 

South Australia tourism advert

 

A racy new tourism campaign for South Australia - which invites Aussies to "go down south with your mouth" against a crimson-tinted image of a vineyard - is being met with disbelief and suspicion that it may be an April Fool's prank.
