Aah April Fools’ – the one day of the year where you can trust absolutely no one, not even the most reliable of sources (in fact they’re the worst!)
We take a quick look at the April Fools’ campaigns of 2015...
1. Domino’s – Driverless Delivery
The nation’s* favourite pizza delivery service, Domino’s has unveiled plans to launch its first fleet of driverless delivery bikes.
From April 1st, customers will no longer be greeted at the door by a friendly* chap – instead they’ll be met with a super-advanced, pizza-bearing bike. At least that alleviates any awkward tipping situations…
* Mynewsdesk’s favourite…okay…my favourite
*delivery boys may vary
2. TFL – Escalator Rules
“Due to overwhelming demand from tourists, you are now required to stand on the left and walk on the right"
Needless to say, TFL’s announcement (via a sign at Canary Wharf Tube Station) has caused a bit of a stir amongst regular commuters.
3. Bloc Hotels – Airline Cabins
Chain hotel, Bloc, today revealed elaborate plans to take their accommodation to the skies with their luxury airplane cabins.
CEO Rob Morgan earlier said: “We offer guests affordable and convenient accommodation before their flight – but we didn’t want to stop there…”
Perhaps they’ll have to stop there…for now.
4. Costa – Kip Time
High Street coffee shop, Costa, has noticed a real surge in sales between 3-4pm, when customers are craving their caffeine fix. But realising the underlying issues, Costa is now encouraging their customers to take a 15 minute nap…at the table.
Costa will be providing ostrich feather pillows and a chance to unwind in their new relaxation zones.
5. Foyles – Boo!mark
Quite the contrary to Costa, Foyles is now selling Boo!marks – a nifty bookmark which wakes readers up if they nod-off mid-read (RRP £7.99). The bookmark has several volume settings and comes in a range of colours.
