    Anyone down for a Lazytown April Fools Day prank?

    Just wondering if anyone was interested. Thought it would be fun. I was thinking if making fake posts of a fifth Lazytown season being confirmed, but anyone is free to add recommendations!

    Edit: An Explainer

    I can't do the video in time. After I made that post, I was suddenly swamped with schoolwork because midterms were coming up, and the energy needed to make it just wasn't there. I am truly sorry for not fulfilling my part, if we were even still going through with it or not. If I posted the video as is, it would be for nothing as a low-quality video for an April fools day prank is practically worthless. I hope you guys understand.

    Re: Anyone down for a Lazytown April Fools Day prank?

    Lol, I kinda wanted the GetLazy community to see it. This isn't exactly the most popular fourm, and the plan was for the bigger Lazytown channels to have a mass pranking spree, fooling anyone who isn't on GetLazy.

    Ehh, I think you got something wrong.
    GetLazy.net most certainly is the most popular LazyTown forum out there, and, to be fair, it's probably the only lasting LazyTown community on the webs.
    Since you're talking about "channels", I assume you mean YouTube - right?
    Yeah, I wouldn't bet on those guys giving any sort of reaction to a hoax like this. Most of the WANO-memers on there probably doesn't even know the show isn't airing anymore. Let alone the fact that there are different seasons..

    Re: Anyone down for a Lazytown April Fools Day prank?

    I didn't mean unpopular, I meant that the average joe wouldn't even know this fourm even existed, unlike something like reddit or 4chan. I did mean youtube channels, and if they were fans of the show, then they probably know about this site. But you're probably right. Any other suggestions?

    Re: Anyone down for a Lazytown April Fools Day prank?

    Magnus went through a bitter breakup with his girlfriend. During a subsequent bout of depression, Maggie optioned the LazyTown property to some investors in Japan. They have drawn up plans for a chain of LazyTown themed restaurants with loli undertones. Construction begins next month.

    Is there a link? And you should probably make it longer and add pictures to make it more convincing.

    This is some low quality bait.
    Anyone with just a tiny bit of BuzzFeed knowledge will know that the site doesn't use a "comic sans jizz font" for their articles.
    And even those without that basic BuzzFeed knowledge (myself included) can clearly see it was posted in freaking Aug 2015!
    Funnily enough that's the time I joined this forum, and I can for sure vouch that this "prank" was not out at that time...

    Here's a link to the article that PuppySpam edited: https://www.buzzfeed.com/lindsayn8/2...ith-booze-e258

    Oh, and you entirely missed the probably funniest part from UnLearnEd's post, regarding the loli undertones.
    This almost triggers me more than your photoshop'd image.. >.<

    Re: Anyone down for a Lazytown April Fools Day prank?

    In my mind the funniest part is the walkabout costumes for the puppet characters. You can get your picture taken with the Mayor I think in his office. If the joke is getting put in BuzzFeed you could add a Stingy's Golden Showers attraction. Though that may cause less people to fall for it. The restaurant's name is Lazy Rockets because there is a section with cars, also a play on the name Johnny Rockets. The theme of that episode mixed with weird Japanese culture makes a fun dining experience. Because it is a sketchy place Magnus regrets the descision. Maybe he goes off his diet, gains weight. idk. Whichever parts are believable.

    First: It's not "photoshop'd"
    Second: I couldn't fit it.
    Third: Where the heck am I going to find the exact buzzfeed font?

    Re: Anyone down for a Lazytown April Fools Day prank?

    Right now I am working on an accompaniment fake news video as we speak. I will be using some base footage from Icelandic news videos about Lazytown, mainly from the Youtube Channel LazytownWorld, and putting over fake subtitles with minor audio edits to fit the narrative. (The video won't fool native Icelandic speakers, but whatever.)

    The plan for thee video is the Japanese buyer in the video to be Shidax, a real-life Japanese corporation that operates the largest karaoke chain in Japan, to invest in the Lazytown property for their wide selection of music and its global appeal. Loli versions for the characters are created to appeal to the Japanese market, as Lazytown has not been aired in Japan.

    These are the main videos I will be working with, mainly the first one because it features an interview with Magnus himself. The second video could be used if we're fully going with the lazy rockets idea.



    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVMuLKZNB80&t=20s

    In case you're wondering about the actual loli stuff, that can be included or not included. My brother is working on loli art for Stephanie and Trixie, but in case he can't deliver people are welcome to draw some if you're interested.

    A fake webpage to post this on would be even better to make it more convincing.

    Any thoughts? Is this video even worthwhile? Should I make changes? Feedback on my ideas would be very appreciated!

    Those details are great. Truly, Magnus is always looking so chipper. If a clip exists of him somewhat disheveled, put it in there. A lot of the people that would be most fun to snag have already seen these videos. Only use small segments of the second one.

    Important part of Lazy Rockets is merged with weird Asian culture and off-model puppets too. The costumes look different in Japan than on the show. I kinda have an idea of what they look like. Maybe show your bro for girls costumes > https://youtu.be/h7aGW42mYIc?t=18m28s

    I can make a promotional one-pager, no problems.
    Depending on how far we're planning to take this, I may even have the perfect domain in mind... We'll see.

    Sorry; I always think pranks are for children or those that failed to mature.

    Never saw the funnies in being tricked or misled.
