The Best Trick Videos for April Fool’s Day

    March 31, 2011 at 10:00 am

    It’s getting harder to find a good prank video to send to your friends on April Fool’s Day. People have already caught on to being RickRolled, and it’s tired and played out. Luckily, there are hundreds of copycat prank videos out there to choose from, and many of them are relatively undiscovered. Here are five good RickRoll-inspired prank videos to send your friends on April Fool’s Day. Just grab the URL, run it through a url shortener to disguise it (like biturl), and you’re good to go!

    Dave Grohl’d!

    The best thing about this clip is the long lead in. It’s long enough for your friends to think that you actually just sent them a Foo Fighters video, and then right when they’re asking themselves “why would my friend just send me a Foo Fighters video?”, the prank kicks in. Perfect!


    Ketchup or Catsup?

    For some reason, old Simpsons clips are a great source of RickRoll-esque prank videos. This video is nothing more than a loop of Mr. Burn’s most important life decision: ketchup or catsup? The nice thing about this clip is that it’s not too long so your friends can’t get pissed at you for wasting 10 minutes of their lives because they were waiting to see which one he chose.


    Justin Bieber Getting Shot (for 10 minutes)

    Self-explanatory, and infinitely awesome.


    The Trololol Guy on Meth

    By now, most people have at least heard of the Trololol Guy video, where this guy sings a weird song in a foreign language for a long time. This prank version of the Trololol guy makes you think that you’re watching a cool remix of the original video. It’s only after a minute or so that you realize you’ve just been played for a fool. It’s an instant internet prank classic.


    I Am So Smart!

    Another Simpsons clip, only this one’s special for a few reasons: 1) It’s a full 10 minutes long. 2) It features Homer Simpson dancing around while his house is burning down. 3) He’s singing a song about how he’s so smart, which comes across as you saying you’re so smart for pranking your friend with this particular video. Plus, he spells “smart” incorrectly. Get it?
