Sometimes, when you pull an April Fools prank, you either get away with it with some kudos, or it horrifically backfires and someone gets their feelings hurt. In this case, a guy’s attempt to prank some users of the popular tech/lifestyle community Massdrop, got him one hell of an epic prank in return. It’s a doozy and I wish he shared a picture of his face, because this is how you troll someone back (in a classy, non-threatening way).
Back on April 1st, Imgur user ColossalKiwi photoshopped this image and posted it on /r/headphones, announcing that Massdrop has a new product for sale: the Gold Sennheiser HD8XX.
Now I’m not much of an audiophile and don’t know a heck of a lot about headphones, but these were supposed to be a more affordable version of THESE headphones that retail for over a grand. So, a pretty popular and desired thing.
To show that it was a joke, he also included this link, which you can click on if you want, but I’ll save you the trouble. It’s a RickRoll, and I don’t like encouraging that kind of behaviour.
