Google has cancelled their April Fools day prank after it backfired. It turns out that if you install a "mic drop" button which mutes the email conversation and sends a GIF on an email platform that 900 million people use for personal AND PROFESSIONAL reasons, not all of them will like it.


via Gmail

First of all, they automatically sent a 'Minions' GIF, and some people said it sent the GIF even when they pressed the normal send button.  To make matters worse, a number of people who accidentally pressed the "mic drop" button were angry and some even said they lost their job or a job opportunity.  

Google updated the prank announcement with this statement:

UPDATE: Well, it looks like we pranked ourselves this year. 😟 Due to a bug, the Mic Drop feature inadvertently caused more headaches than laughs. We’re truly sorry. The feature has been turned off. If you are still seeing it, please reload your Gmail page.

Slightly off topic, but have you been to the websites for Starbucks or Target recently? Have you noticed that they don't have the name of their company on the front page, just the logo? That's the trend. It freaks me out.

What Famous Companies Would Look Like With Black Metal Logos

Since 1977, artist Christophe Szpajdel has designed over 7,000 logos for metal bands ranging from black metal to death metal to pure depressive black funeral doom metal. His latest release of artwork takes a more lighthearted turn, reimagining the logos of famous companies with a little bit of unholy, mutilated, gutgrinding, necrotic demonrage mixed in. Fun!
