So erm… Regarding that April Fools Prank: April Personal Update

238c7-cover1-941x516

Gosh its April already.

So… erm hi. This is an awkward intro. The original prank post is here.

Yeap, April Fools is over so I decided why not do some statistics with the people who are involved for one final laugh.

But first, I think most of you guys wanna know behind the scenes of the prank and who was the mastermind of it all.

So it all started 12days before April Fools…

I was pondering pretty hard about what to do for this year’s April Fools. Eventually, after thinking for a long time, I decided it to be a wedding one.

So I approached Moyatori, asking her to be my wife for a day and she kind of reluctantly agreed, because she was kind of skeptical about the plan and if people would actually fall for the prank.

Then I nailed down the plan with a story about “how we first met” and the “proposal”. So the story was conceptualized by her with her “dream first meeting” and “dream proposal” scenarios.

The whole story writing process took about 3 days to finish and then tadah, ETA 7 days to go and scheduled at April 1st midnight in my timezone.

The response was…

…Unexpectedly amazing. We have about 70% of the people involved falling for the prank entirely. Something me and Moya didn’t expect, because I was kind of skeptical too. I have people flooding me on Discord, Twitter and WordPress about it. Me and Moya went even further with adding the “we getting married” lines in our About pages.

Why was it so effective?

I actually don’t know to be honest. But it seems like the whitened text at the bottom of the post, the sudden surprise announcement, my timezone advantage and the pretty convincing story blew many of you guys away.

So, to commemorate the huge success of the prank, we decided to give out “awards” for those with the funniest reactions. And here goes…

The Salty Award: Skycorps

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After I put his comment in the spam because his comment on the post was revealing the prank. I dmed him about it immediately after, but the salt… I can’t.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He went on to rant about it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even bringing his other Twitter account involved with his salt. Applause to him because I was totally not expecting this kind of a response over a prank but yeah, he plays Fortnite, so the salt was kind of expected. Follow his Twitters and blog for more salt content~

The Biggest Reaction Award: NeonLuminous

Just by the dms as you can see… HAHA. Me and Moya laughed so hard at this one. Props to you mate. Follow him on Twatter.

The “I totally see this coming, so I will just sit in my corner, eat my popcorn and laugh” award: Rose

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well, we kind of saw it coming from her, because she knew about our secret for awhile now but yeah. She retweeted the post and dragged in one more victim… hehehehe. Follow her on Twitter and her blog for more of her ageless stuff.

The “Ugh, sweet couples… Wait, is this a prank?” award: Deven Luca

He was really bitter.

 

 

 

Then 20mins later…

 

HA GOTCHA BETCH. Follow his blog and Twatter for more bitter content.

“Wow, you are a step ahead of me… Wait a minute, this a prank?” award: Lethargic Ramblings

Moya liked your reaction the most.

This lazy man didn’t read the entire post so he actually dug his own grave with his laziness. He probably cannot find it even if he did read them all. Follow him for more insomnia curing content.

This upcoming section, is for those who nearly fell for the trap, but saved themselves the last minute.

Honorable mentions:

  1. BladeNinja
  2. Tadashi
  3. RubyDuck
  4. Kyri

Follow them on their social medias!

Then these are the ones that entirely fell into the trap.

The Fool Award:

  1. Sakyana (This one 100%, I can tell.)
  2. Mea
  3. Uiabird
  4. Plyasm
  5. OneSideOfMakhail
  6. fiddletwix

Do follow/subscribe to them too. The rest are just too ambiguous for us to tell whether they fall for it or not.

and lastly… The Opportunist Award: Shokamoka

How about no.

For those who completely didn’t fall for it, congratulations, you are too smart that you don’t receive any awards. WAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

So yeah, that’s it for the pranks. Hopefully we gave you guys a big scare, salt and laugh, ’cause we had fun. We’ll see if I have ideas for next year, I don’t do this every year, that’s why it’s so convincing. If you wanna admit whether you fall for the prank, just put it in the comments below, the pranks over, no one will judge, just share the laughs.

What about other pranks?

Oh, I found quite a few. And my favourite one is probably Girlfriend Beta’s Twitter.

What they did was that they added 4 mothers of some girls into their massive roster of girls to date, making it a very… Koi wa Ameagari-esque romance but with the genders reversed. I was laughing pretty badly when they changed their Twitter account layout at midnight. Well played.

Ok now that that’s out of the way. Back to your regular monthly update.

School is start next week (at the point of this post) for me, and work is also taking a pretty huge amount of time away from me, so posts will start to get rather sporadic and which is why I didn’t pick up that many shows for Spring. I might pick up some shows mid season, but don’t be too optimistic that it would hit back to the 2 digits zone anytime soon.

My streams will also be affected by this life changing matter too, but I will try to be on as much as I can.

So that’s all for now. I will see you guys soon, with the 30 Day Video Games challenge tomorrow. Until then, see ya.

Meanwhile, if you are new and enjoy reading my content, follow this blog, Twitter and Twitch! I do gaming livestreams too. I have 2 Twitter accounts by the way, but it’s up to you if you want to follow both.

I’m currently fundraising for my blog fees so if you want to support me, you can donate at the top right of this post. Or hit up the affiliate links, it also supports the site. If you want to support my Twitch livestreams, hit up my Amazon wishlist and gift me a mic, I will worship you.

I also have a Patreon and Ko-fi if you want to support me.

  1. It’s best to avoid the internet on April 1st. There’s no telling what news is real and what is fake haha.

    After this stunt no one will go to your real wedding. They will think it is a joke 🙂

  2. Super late on this, but I absolutely love these types of trolls. Last year, I did one and most people fell for it until they noticed something weird about the pictures. Great prank! 🙂

  3. I read the original title, and I went, “Ha ha, so funny! No way is this real! Too tsundere!” But then everyone else was so sincerely congratulating you that I was like, “Am I the jerk here??” You know, that moment in movies when only the villain/antagonist is laughing and everyone else is shooting them dirty looks and booing them. I decided to wait and come back later and see if I was the crazy one or if everyone else was.
    And your “love story” was better than in a lot of anime/manga. I would read/watch that.

  4. Whyyy…are you poor souls so gullible?
    Don’t trust him, like ever. XD The real Moya would actually die before uttering the words “would you go out with me?”
