Air guitar lessons, steak-scented deodorant and a job as a cat herder – all part of April Fools’ Day

Air guitar lessons? Brewery body care products? And a job listing for a cat herder?

It’s all part of April Fools’ Day, when companies and big name brands attempt to outduel each other for the funniest fake product announcements.

Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with Butterfinger kicked off the pun parade on Thursday and the silliness has been spreading ever since.

Companies pretty much took a pass on April Fools’ Day in 2020 with the COVID-19 shutdown sinking in. But last year, as the nation began opening up a bit, the stunts returned in full force with funny gags such as Velveeta cheesy skin products and Bud Light pizza flavored seltzers.

April Fools’ Day deals you don’t want on your skin

For this year’s April Fools’ tomfoolery, personal care is again a top target.

Meat lovers would always be able to exude the aura of a pitmaster with Omaha Steaks’ trio of Meat Sweats “perspirants” that come in the aromas of steak, mesquite and lighter fluid. 

Omaha Steaks is rewarding customers who check out their website with 50% off orders Friday. “It might be April Fools’ Day, but delivering value and flavor is no laughing matter,” the company said in a statement.

Yuengling pranked how it could take the shower beer to the next level with “hoppily brewed” Lagér by Yuengling shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Each “utilizes Yuengling’s very own Fountain of Youth as its main ingredient, Natural Spring water from the historic Yuengling Spring in Pottsville, PA,” the company said in a press release.

“We saw that Yuengling Lager fans love the beer so much, they take it into the shower, so it was a great opportunity for us to create an innovative way for Yuengling lovers to experience our iconic beer,” offered Bob Seaman, the brewery’s director of innovation & product development. 

Bud Light lands another silly April Fools’ Day seltzer

Seltzers are big and so is the Netflix series “Bridgerton.” So Bud Light teased a timely new pack of beverages to watch while binging: The Bud Light Seltzer Really Really Retro Pack with flavors including Afternoon Tea, Queen Cake, Duke Delight and Courtship Cocktail, which are “the perfect accompaniment to your next ball.”

You’ve heard the saying “like herding cats?” Careerbuilder.com posted a humorous hiring: Cat herder.

Among the qualifications: familiarity with feline best practices (locating expensive items on high shelves, staring at a door, deciding whether to go in or out and a tendency of being aloof)” and being “adept with using a laser pointer.”
