I think our prank was a little too effective. I've received around 200 geekmail/emails with a wide range of emotion some anger, confusion, and happiness!

The site was programmed to create a thread with your username mentioned as a new admin. The thread was actually a link to a site that played this video.



I apologize to anyone who opened the website at work!

Thanks to Octavian and dakarp for the idea and execution.

Happy April Fool's Day!

I thought it was great! I got my wife to check out the Geek on my computer, and when she saw the news item, she was shocked! "You don't need another responsibility in your life right now!!" - So I told her to click on it and read the news item. 12 seconds into the song she was threatening me with violence and laughing.

For some reason I can't stop watching & listening to the video. 20 minutes so far and still going!

I need help.

(Edit: 1:10 to 1:35 are the greatest measures in the history of music.)

This has been my favorite video of the past few weeks. When I saw the link, I knew something was up, but I also wanted to find out what it was!

Although I wasn't a part of it, but damn funny all the same. Love the April fools jokes.

Lighten up people, what the "holiday" is all about, realizing life is suppose to be fun =)

PS: Video was very disturbing, must take medication now in attempt to prevent nightmare reoccurrence of such video.

I liked it Didn't fall for it because the possibility of me being an admin is infinitesimally remote, and well, I've learned to take everything said on April 1 as false until proven otherwise.

Very weird video though!

Thanks for the fun!!!

I thought it was superb. I posted it everywhere I could with hilarious results. However when I stumbled onto this I fell off my mule!
