Video: We tested 3 classic April Fools' Day pranks on our co-workers

We do not guarantee all prank victims will be amused – as demonstrated in the video.

For the sake of April Fools' Day, some of us at GoMN decided to pull pranks on our co-workers.

C'mon. April Fools' Day only comes once a year. You can't pass up this kind of opportunity.

We tested the "wow" factor of some funny and classic pranks. They're simple ones that you can do using stuff you probably already have at home or work.

Please note that we do not guarantee all prank victims will be amused – as demonstrated in the video above.
