The beginning of April marks April Fool's Day, a time when many brands release faux products or services as a marketing ploy and this list of 10 April Fool's marketing campaign showcase hilarious ways brands have participated in 2021.
Notably, Jack Link's Beef Jerky celebrated the day with a unique giveaway, allowing its fans to enter for a chance to win a bottle of its Jerky Cologne. To enter, fans need to follow the brand on Instagram, like the giveaway post, and in the comments, name their favorite flavor and tag two of their friends.
Another humorous example of an April Fool's marketing campaign comes from strategic communications and marketing agency Peppercomm. The brand recently debuted Zoomsie, "the world's first integrated work-from-home fashion solution," a one-piece outfit with "the style of professional workwear and the comfort of a onesie."
