No, Tubbycoin Isn't Real, and No, Not Everyone Got the April Fool's Joke

Last night was weird. In a cold medicine haze I happened upon a tweet from Netflix featuring a Furby saying "Let the dark harvest begin." It was terrifying and confusing. I moved on. All was well in the world as I scrolled past bad political take after bad political take. Until I saw a tweet from the @TeletubbiesHQ account that teased something big - and featured the #Bitcoin hashtag. After pinching myself really hard to ensure that I was not hallucinating, it became obvious from the responses, that other Twitter users were just as bewildered.

The very mixed response continued after the account tweeted an update this morning: 

Fortunately, anyone who clicked through the link and read through the increasingly ridiculous WildBrain labs presser realized that the whole "HugTech" thing was an April Fool's charade - for a good cause. Michael Riley of Wild Brain explained towards the end of the release in the following statement: 

"I'd like to wish everyone a Happy April Fools' Day! Although TubbyCoin is not really a cryptocurrency, our hope is that you'll still enjoy sharing TubbyCoins with friends, family and anyone who needs a hug – all to bring some very real smiles to faces. And the part about WildBrain's donation to charity is no joke. To help ensure kids have the assistance they need in these difficult times, we'll be making a $5,000 donation to Kids Help Phone and adding one dollar to our donation for every TubbyCoin shared on social media up to a total of $10,000. So, share those virtual BigHugs!"

While one might expect a positive reaction after the initial shock and horror of Teletubby cryptocurrency, people are still decrying the move, citing crypto's effects on the environment, and even some chiding from Twitter users who seem to be convinced that this prank will encourage child gambling. The whole thing is almost too ridiculous to comprehend, but thanks to another annoying April Fools Day, we're forced to think about this nonsense. Thank god for comedy-leaning commenters. We don't know where we'd be without them.

Twitter Cracks Pre-April Fools Jokes Before The Big Day Of Trickery

Not everyone is all about April Fools shenanigans, and many on Twitter are getting their yucks in now before they get yucked tomorrow. Remember when we were kids and April Fools was about giving your friends cookies made with salt instead of sugar? Boy, the looks on their faces. On the internet, April Fools 'pranks' are really just people lying to each other and the occasional fake announcement made by a popular brand. What will April 1st bring this year? We'll have to wait to find out, but until then, Twitter is cracking sarcastic jokes in anticipation of all the deceit and trickery
