Pranks for Nothing
The no-brainer approach to April Fools’ Day
Happy April Fools? Day!
We could bring you a bunch of fake stories about how the Loch Ness Monster was spotted with a ?lob.? Or how poison ivy is the new kale.
But instead, we thought we?d let you be the jokesters.
Here, a few of the easiest digital pranks you can play on your near and dear:
Tweet on their behalf Lemme Tweet That for You lets you create a screenshot of a fake Twitter post written under a friend?s handle. Think: ?Stayed home from work today due to Bieber fever? or ?Anybody got a good reco for extra-strength antiperspirant?? Once you create a fake tweet, you can post it to your own social media feeds; everyone will think your pal actually wrote it.
Make them think their car is damaged Work with a guy who?s a little too into his Camaro? Download the Dude, Your Car! app, then add amazingly realistic scratches, dents and broken glass to a picture of his beloved wheels. Send the photo. Await his hellish screams.
Make them think you know celebrities Casually leave your phone faceup on the table. On display: a text from Beyoncé that says ?We on for 7?? Your friends will gawk with jealousy. Only you will know you preprogrammed it using the ingenious Fake-a-Text app.
