Google Adbirds April Fool prank

Google AdBirds Takes Flight

On April 1, 2014, Google launched their new mobile advertising format – AdBirds.

…yes, it’s another one of Google’s April Fool pranks. No doubt a bunch of people will fall for it though, perhaps even a few animal rights activists concerned for our feathered friends.

Google also revealed the Gmail Shelfie (SHareable Selfie) today – taking credit for the term ‘selfie’ as well as reducing the number of pirates tormenting hapless seafarers. Check out Shelfies here >

Last year’s prank was perhaps the best however…Google Nose. Check it out below!
