Google unleashes 8-bit version Google Maps for the NES and introduces Gmail Tap

Sun, Apr 1, 2012


It’s April Fools ya’ll, and once again, it’s a holiday that the good folks at Google seemingly take very seriously. Not that we’re complaining, of course. Google has brought us some of the funnier tech-related April Fools Day pranks that we can remember.

This year, Google came up with Google Maps 8-Bit for the NES. It’s a solid effort, to be sure.

But this one here, is the creme de la creme. It’s a video for a feature called Gmail Tap, and, well, I don’t want to ruin it for you but it’s great. They really capture the vibe of what these tech videos are typically like, and it also features an unexpected cameo from the likes of LL Cool J. Tap Tap bitches!
