Best April Fools’ Day Campaigns of 2019

REI isn’t kitten around with this premium line of outdoor adventure equipment for our furry friends. Who hasn’t gone on a nine day trip to ride through New Zealand’s quintessential biking trails and thought, if only my miniature donkey were here? “For many of us, our pets are a valuable member of our family, sometimes even more than a child or spouse, so expanding into REI Adventures trips for pets felt like the next logical step,” said James Rodgers of REI Adventures. Seriously though, we wish these adorable tiny tents and chalk bags were fur real.

evo’s Custom Skis for Dogs

The team at evo was thinking along the same lines with their new product series, evoDog. If you were furtunate enough to grab a pair of skis for your canine companion during this one-day-only sale, you’re probably heading up the mountain right now getting ready to shred some fresh puppy pow.

Fabula Nebulae is a Maine based company that crafts natural body care products. The really schooled their competitors with their new line of fish oil deodorant – so sofishticated, we can’t wait to try it out. If you’re not into fish, they have plenty of other “farm to tub” natural products to get hooked on.
