The News Minute | April 1, 2015 | 6:27 p.m. IST As is the order of April 1st, everyone was out to pull one over the first person they came across. The internet has pioneered its own kind of gags, and from spoof reports to super cars at your beck and call, April Fools' Day had a share of the pie for everyone.Â Here are some of the gags we came across: Rahul Gandhi on Reddit: Yes, the Gandhi scion was apparently on Reddit this morning taking part in an A.M.A (ask me anything) session with redditers. While the intro gave it away, Sonia Gandhi, Robert Vadra, Jawaharlal Nehru and Mohandas Karamchand came to play.Â Â Â Sachin Tendulkar to become the next coach of the Indian Team: The Master Blaster can never stay away from the headlines away, be it New YearĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s or Christmas. So IBN ran the article, tipping Tendulkar to replace Duncan Fletcher as the next coach, and the link to the leaked email from the BCCI redirected here.Â Uber Supercars: Well, yes, you can now book a Super Uber. From LamborghinisĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ to FerrarisĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ they said.Â Â Hamleys would hook you up with a car they also said. Well Hamleys do make cars, but theyĂ˘â‚¬â„˘re a bit small.Â Ola Air: If Uber offers you a super-car, Ola offers you a chopper. Simple. Well, this attempt at a fly-by to its competitor looks quite legit, the videoeven better. You almost wish you had a private helipad for those easy pick-ups.Â Coldplay to tour India: A gag which was almost rude, and leaves you cursing under your breath. WeĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ll keep our fingers crossed to ensure this one twisted lie turns true though. Tweet Follow @thenewsminute
