Virgin Mobile releases April Fool's preparedness video
Toronto-based Virgin Mobile Canada has released a promotional online video that takes the form of a public service announcement in support of "April Fool's Awareness." The video offers advice for people who wish to avoid falling for April Fool's pranks perpetrated by friends, family members, coworkers or companies. The company has also released checklists for home and office April Fool's Day preparedness.
"People think April Fool's is all fun and games, but these pranks can be merciless," said Joseph Ottorino, managing director of Virgin Mobile Canada. "Through our first-of-its-kind awareness campaign, we will enlighten unsuspecting Canadians to the dangers of whoopee cushions, hand buzzers, cling-wrapped toilet seats, booby traps and whatever else might come at them on April 1. Think of us like that little voice in the back of your head reminding you to check your chair, keep away from unattended food and avoid any doorway."
