HA HA! Fooled You!
So did you get it? I'm thinking many of you didn't get the awesome hilarious April Fool's prank that I pulled yesterday. To tell you what it was, let's take it back to the beginning, when I came up with the idea. Back in late February.
Every April 1st, I do some kind of joke or prank here at Invasion of the B-Movies, whether it's pretend to review a "good" movie or make you think the website is down. While thinking about it, I was looking at other websites and I came across James' website Cinema Sights and it hit me. So I hit back. After that was done, I emailed James and told him my plan. He LOVED the idea and said "let's do it!"
The plan was simple. Basically on that day we'd swap reviews. He would watch and review a movie that he normally reviews, which are usually artsy classic films, and I'd do the same but the movies I normally cover here, which....aren't artsy or classic by any means. The different genres of movies plus the different writing styles would make for a HILARIOUS prank on our readers. I'm sure James' readers would be like "MY WORD! What is this filth! I DARE SAY!!" while adjusting their monocles. And my readers would be like "FUCKIN' DUDE, YO!! You be reviewin' some WEIRD shit, dude!! WTF?!?!?!?!?"
Sadly, what ended up happening was...nothing really. Honestly, I have no idea if you guys got the joke or not. In a way, I kinda hope you didn't cause that'd be funny but lack of comments or mentioning it (save for two people, thanks Steve and Dave) didn't really tell me if it worked or not. I emailed James last night telling him I don't think it worked and he agreed. We both still think it's funny and had fun with the idea. But now we're gonna take the reviews down and post them in their proper place. So in case you weren't aware, my review of "Long Island Cannibal Massacre" will be up sometime later today.
With that said, I hope you all had a great April 1st and hopefully your pranks didn't involve dying. As a special thanks, I leave you with this:
