Google April Fools’ Trick Hits Co-Founder Sergey Brin?

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Google went prank crazy during this year’s April Fools’ festivities – but end-users may not have been the only ones tricked by company moves.

According to a report from Forbes on Friday, company co-founder Sergey Brin was seen around LinkedIn headquarters yesterday driving none other than a Tesla Model S. However, the type of car isn’t what made this extraordinary: It was how it was styled.

The car was pink, featured a batman logo, headlight eyelashes, slick silver rims with black wings on the back.

“Huh. I don’t remember Batman fins as an option when I configured my Tesla,” commented Google Search Quality Analyst Nathan Johns via his Google+ page.

So was Brin a victim of April Fools’ with a car makeover? Our speculation says “yes.”
