April Fools 2022

1 04 2022

Hello hello! Another year, another morning of scouring the internet for what companies have come up with this year!

It’s good selection in the end, though with a few gaps from some of those who are normally pretty regular, which was a shame. I couldn’t even find any other sites doing roundups to check for what I may have missed, which was odd, but if I find any more later, I’ll add them in at the bottom!

I’ve put captions under each one as some companies delete the posts after the festivities have passed.

Enjoy 😊
