April Fool’s Day 2022: Best jokes from Aldi, Deliveroo and more UK News

April Fool’s Day is upon us again, as a barrage of jokes, pranks and pranks are created to see if they can catch people believing them.

With so many brands taking the opportunity to market themselves or their products, it’s almost impossible not to see some form of these jokes – at least on social media anyway.

Some of them are much easier to spot than others, and some go the extra mile to create the most outlandish story possible.

April Fool’s jokes aren’t just limited to brands, as some people, like Ant & Dec, have gotten in on the act as well.

Here are some of the best we’ve seen today.

The best April Fool’s jokes of 2022

Ant & Dec’s Toon Room

The growing popularity of cryptocurrency inspired Ant & Dec for their April Fool’s joke, as they announced they would be launching Toon Coin, “the world’s first virtual currency based in Newcastle”.

On their webpage, they claimed that Bitcoin’s creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, was a boom trader on their Byker Grove program in the 1990s, and that their quest to create their own currency had been “thwarted” due to their television and music careers.

Deliveroo positions itself on pineapple on pizza

The debate over whether pineapple should go on pizza has been around for some time, and Deliveroo used it for its April Fool’s Day ad.

He claims that from today, pineapple on pizza can no longer be purchased from restaurants on Deliveroo.

They ran this ad similar to the anti-piracy ads featured on many DVDs in the 2000s, with statements such as “You wouldn’t make pineapple with pasta” and “You wouldn’t juice of ham”.

Aldi flies in style

Aldi is known for its production on social media and didn’t let April Fool’s Day pass without posting something.

They announced that they will start their own airline in “AldiAir” and will come soon for Ryanair.

When asked where they would be flying, their Twitter account replied: “We will be announcing flights to Caldifornia and The Middle Aisle of Wight”.

The first edible roller coaster?

It might take the cake for one of a company’s most outlandish April Fool’s Day press releases, with Fantasy Island in Skegness announcing they’ll be opening the world’s first edible ride.

Families could take the “Cuthbert the Caterpillar” tour and bring a plate to taste in the gooey chocolate.

Paige Harris, Head of Marketing at Fantasy Island, said, “We’re really thrilled to be the first theme park in the world to launch an edible ride. Fantasy Island prides itself on providing the ultimate fun for all ages.

“Plates and cutlery will also be distributed to our guests today, so they can enjoy our tasty caterpillar with ease.”

The best of the rest

Walkers were another brand to get in on the act, unveiling their new “sandwich-shaped chips.”

Meanwhile, the Have I Got News for You account used the day to jokingly announce that Boris Johnson had quit over ‘partygate’.

Good Morning Britain also got involved, in a more obvious attempt at a ‘live TV moment gone wrong’, when Laura Tobin dropped a pot containing a supposedly unique plant that had been grown over the course of a five-year selection program.
