If Google were a guy, then your search terms would sound really, really stupid.

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.

Now I can't shake the nagging suspicion that the same thing applies to tech departments at work. Best-kept secret?
