At Motivated Marketing, we love chatting about our favorite brand executions – especially the ones that make us laugh. Here are some of our team’s favorite branded April Fools pranks.

Kristin (Director of Operations) says: “The look on the kid’s face kills me.”

Open Table

Melanie (Media Buyer) says: “Tasting is believing!”






Mike (Digital Marketing Manager) says: “I think this is clever and a nice play on their name. It’s not overdone either & more playful than obnoxious.”
