Happy April Fools' Day, folks!
As usual, we'll be rounding up the biggest and best pranks of the day right here. Check back for updates and let us know about any brilliant pranks you've seen, pulled or fell for today.
A week ago, American Eagle Outfitters released a clothing line for dogs called American Beagle. Today, they revealed it was meant to be a prank, but the response to the announcement was so great, they are now going to produce a doggy clothing line that will be ready by Christmas.
Tic Tac Shakeless! The mint company released new packaging engineered to stop the shake. Now you can stealthily eat your precious mints. No more sharing!
If you want to smell like "pervasive, fermented passion," that is.
Virgin America and Nest bring you the latest advancement in flight technology: Total Temperature Control. Passengers can now enjoy a "Cancun Afternoon" or the "Chicago Polar Vortex" right from their seats.
TOMS and Uber team up to launch 'Shuber X': "Great for the environment, even better for your calves."
The Spice Girls, N*SYNC, AND Mandy Moore all in one place? Refinery 29 brings us 2014's best music fest.
Unfortunately, the link to buy tickets tells a different story.

Thinking of upgrading to Tumblr Pro? Watch this video and then give it whirl... it's totally real and not a prank that everyone will know you fell for. Promise!
Finally, someone has leveraged the constitution-straining powers of the NSA with novelty t-shirts and mugs. CafePress introduces CafePredict, bringing you the things you want before you even order them.
AirBnB introduces AirBrb, for when you need a desk for a few minutes...
Alas, it was too good to be true...
So far, this Puppy Connect prank by American Well is our favorite... because PUPPIES!

This should be a hit at bars (especially karaoke bars).
Could it be that all the photos have been replaced with cats? And their page now has a electronic cat soundtrack?
Yes. Yes, it could be.
Thanks go CarGurus, who announced today that they have developed the technology to make taking a selfie in your car just as easy as driving one:
If this sounds dangerous or like a complete invasion of privacy, don't worry. They've sorted that all out:
"To avoid embarrassing or incriminating evidence, CarGurus deletes any photos in which the driver does not have two hands on the wheel, preventing prying eyes from ever seeing a user air-drumming to Van Halen or with a questing finger up a nostril."

By stuffing ground meat, chopped fruit and packets of their effervescent vitamin drink into a sausage casing, Emergen-C has officially grossed us out on April Fools' Day.
Listen to that fizz!
Jimmy Kimmel was just kidding last week when he showed his commercial for the world's sheerest yoga pants: Lululemon Pledge.
But today, the spray-on bottoms are for sale (but "out of stock") on Lululemon's website for ,200.
Let's hope they get some back in stock soon!

Because OF COURSE you need a tiny iron for your underwear.
Pesky wrinkles be gone!
"Sizzling Bacon?" "Rotisserie Chicken?" Wow, Netflix's new slate of original programming sounds delicious.
Alas, these new shows are actually an April Fool's Day prank on those of us who would totally watch a slow-cooking piece of meat on TV as if it were a Yule Log at Christmas.

Our friends over at Cheezburger partnered with Betabrand to debut a new clothing line for cats this morning featuring "human" designs.
"There are many injustices in this world, perhaps none more egregious than the fact that cat-themed clothes exist for humans, yet it's next to impossible to find a human-inspired garments for cats."
If you click "add to cart," you're asked to enter a scan of your cat's paw (or anyone's cat, really).
