April Fool's Day, how good?

It's that time of year that everybody knows is coming, and yet people still fall for some pretty obvious gags.

George FM big boss and our resident prank artist, the Big DC Dean Campbell, has put together a list of the best April Fool's Day gags he spotted today. Big DC, the man knows content.

Have a geez below and check them out.
