Some of our favourite April Fool’s Marketing Stunts from Burger King, Google, Durex and more
April Fool’s Day is used by some of the Worlds big brands to create viral content and show off their marketing techniques with a bit of light-hearted humour.
We have rounded up our favourite adverts and fake products from this year from the likes of Burger King, Google, Heinz, Planet Fitness, Durex and More.
Let’s take a look at our favourite April fool’s day pranks of 2018.
‘The Chocolate Whopper’
My daughter came across the Burger King ‘Chocolate Whopper’ advert online and excitedly asked if next time we travelled from Blackpool to Manchester we could stop off at the nearest motorway service station to try Burger King’s mouth-watering ‘Chocolate Whopper’.
Thankfully she had enough Easter eggs for her chocolate fix when I broke the news to her that it was, in fact, an April Fool’s Day Marketing Stunt and advertised by Burger King in the US.
I was actually quite looking forward to trying one myself!
‘Seriously Good Chocolate Mayonaisse’
