I thought it was pretty clever for a more "traditional" company. Granted it was Branson, but still.

He always is into practical jokes. He got fake police to raid a Dudley Moore and Peter Cook recording session for drugs. Plus he called his business "Virgin". Fairly indicative that he has a sense of humour, unlike most of his peers.

Lame.

Nothing more lame than late April Fool's Day jokes, except ones that were lame to begin with and are now also late. It's like warmed up leftovers from a meal that wasn't good the first time around.

Only people who have never noticed that the passenger deck of airliners sits atop a huge cargo hold could look at this entertain it at possibly real.

Lame. Only people who have never heard of engineering could imagine change was impossible.

As for being late, I didn't see it until shortly before posting it. By now I can't imagine anyone is fooled by them, so their creativity is what matters, not the date. At least for those who aren't lame :P

So... someone who has a :pjp: dedicated to them, wants us to be interested in an obvious joke that he thought was real.

! :interesting:

lol, you thought it was real?

Because it is best to publicly demonstrate your misunderstanding in grand fashion.
