The Day LucasArts Canceled April Fool’s Day 10 Nov, 2021 / 1 comment

Sometime back in 2004, Mojo and The SCUMM Bar banded together to create an April Fool’s Day joke for the ages: a fake Monkey Island movie trailer. Yet, close as the prank came to fruition, the plans to execute it was aborted on March 3rd, 2004. Why? I take a quick look back at this footnote in Mojo’s history.

Bonus fact: this was the last time we attempted an actual April Fool’s joke, too. You’re welcome! (Update: OK, looking back through the archives it turns out that wasn’t entirely true, but any further attempts were pretty, pretty, pretty bad.)

    I'll check the video soon, but I think I can easily say that was an extremely smart decision to self-cancel that prank. ;)

    But I can also say thank you for the reveal of this gag and reflection.
