April Fool Marketing, 2016 Edition

The calendar shows why brands are giving us a smile today: It's April Fool, so let's enjoy the marketing jokes. 

Royal Caribbean, known for cruise marketing, has a new venture, announced (just by accident?!) on April 1: its latest vacation opportunity, Orbiter of the Galaxies. Reservations will be taken for "cruises" starting in 2030.

Think Geek has, as always, a variety of almost-plausible products on its site. How about the Star Trek White Noise Sleep Machine? Only $149.99. Dream on.

 Southwest Airlines has a new gimmick for April Fool's Day: "Cash Lav" which takes place inside the jet bathroom. Here's the link. Good luck!

One last prank: Coca-Cola batteries, courtesy of the company's Japanese arm. Sure, caffeine gives everyone a shot of energy. April Fool!
