“Hide your kids, hide your wife…”

Google has announced they have planned to shut down their video streaming service tomorrow as the following video announces it’s “time to pick a winner”. YouTube says it has been one giant video contest all along, and one winner will be picked and revealed in a decade in 2023, when the site goes back online. Just watch the video below:

If you haven’t figured it out by now…the video’s description has this at the bottom:

By the way… April Fools! 😉

April Fools’ Day trolling before April Fools’ Day. Well played, Google. Well played.

Update: Oh, Google is also introducing Gmail Blue

…and Google Nose

    Lame. The funniest thing about this video is how unfunny it is. My first thought as I read the title: “Yeah, right, like they would shut down this money making machine for even a minute.” After watching video: “Probably made them more money with all these people watching.”

    Obviously you didn’t check your Google Analytics Realtime stats – if your site is as popular as mine you will have 41 Visitors from the Control Room aboard the International Space Station… very funny!
