We here at Order Desk are no stranger to the occasional April Fools prank, and since it’s been a while we thought we’d have a little fun this year by announcing several new Order Desk…”products”…on Twitter this year.

These new products sadly do not exist (yet?), but it’s funny to imagine what it would be like to live in a heightened version of reality where Order Desk has expanded its reach, investing in frivolous ventures that are unrelated to the original Order Desk app that we know and love today.

It all started with a simple, somewhat ominous tweet. You’ve seen the type before, a tech company will send out a virtual save the date announcement, inviting you to witness their latest product reveals.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-0&features=eyJ0ZndfZXhwZXJpbWVudHNfY29va2llX2V4cGlyYXRpb24iOnsiYnVja2V0IjoxMjA5NjAwLCJ2ZXJzaW9uIjpudWxsfSwidGZ3X3NwYWNlX2NhcmQiOnsiYnVja2V0Ijoib2ZmIiwidmVyc2lvbiI6bnVsbH19&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1509578743873953794&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.orderdesk.com%2Fannouncements%2Fapril-foolin%2F&sessionId=db74a80511f774b1deb54cdd6d5f41643ebc5a1e&theme=light&widgetsVersion=c8fe9736dd6fb%3A1649830956492&width=550px

From there, we move on to our first announcement, Order Desk shoes! Given how the sneaker industry has exploded in popularity in recent years, who knows, maybe people would’ve lined up around the block for these shoes as well.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-1&features=eyJ0ZndfZXhwZXJpbWVudHNfY29va2llX2V4cGlyYXRpb24iOnsiYnVja2V0IjoxMjA5NjAwLCJ2ZXJzaW9uIjpudWxsfSwidGZ3X3NwYWNlX2NhcmQiOnsiYnVja2V0Ijoib2ZmIiwidmVyc2lvbiI6bnVsbH19&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1509923544494448648&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.orderdesk.com%2Fannouncements%2Fapril-foolin%2F&sessionId=db74a80511f774b1deb54cdd6d5f41643ebc5a1e&theme=light&widgetsVersion=c8fe9736dd6fb%3A1649830956492&width=550px

Coffee can be a vital part of anyone’s day, whether you stick to the traditional type or enjoy partaking in novelty flavors (we’re not here to judge!). We like to imagine that Deskbucks would’ve catered to everyone’s needs.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-2&features=eyJ0ZndfZXhwZXJpbWVudHNfY29va2llX2V4cGlyYXRpb24iOnsiYnVja2V0IjoxMjA5NjAwLCJ2ZXJzaW9uIjpudWxsfSwidGZ3X3NwYWNlX2NhcmQiOnsiYnVja2V0Ijoib2ZmIiwidmVyc2lvbiI6bnVsbH19&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1509961293758754816&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.orderdesk.com%2Fannouncements%2Fapril-foolin%2F&sessionId=db74a80511f774b1deb54cdd6d5f41643ebc5a1e&theme=light&widgetsVersion=c8fe9736dd6fb%3A1649830956492&width=550px

There was a time when the Omniphone™️ could’ve been a revolutionary product. We don’t know when that time would’ve been, but needless to say the world is less bright for never having witnessed the majesty of the Omniphone™️.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-3&features=eyJ0ZndfZXhwZXJpbWVudHNfY29va2llX2V4cGlyYXRpb24iOnsiYnVja2V0IjoxMjA5NjAwLCJ2ZXJzaW9uIjpudWxsfSwidGZ3X3NwYWNlX2NhcmQiOnsiYnVja2V0Ijoib2ZmIiwidmVyc2lvbiI6bnVsbH19&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1509996523416915975&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.orderdesk.com%2Fannouncements%2Fapril-foolin%2F&sessionId=db74a80511f774b1deb54cdd6d5f41643ebc5a1e&theme=light&widgetsVersion=c8fe9736dd6fb%3A1649830956492&width=550px

Some people like to work during their flight, but would they pay a premium just for the opportunity to do so? Probably not, it seems like an ill-advised concept.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-4&features=eyJ0ZndfZXhwZXJpbWVudHNfY29va2llX2V4cGlyYXRpb24iOnsiYnVja2V0IjoxMjA5NjAwLCJ2ZXJzaW9uIjpudWxsfSwidGZ3X3NwYWNlX2NhcmQiOnsiYnVja2V0Ijoib2ZmIiwidmVyc2lvbiI6bnVsbH19&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1510021689953898497&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.orderdesk.com%2Fannouncements%2Fapril-foolin%2F&sessionId=db74a80511f774b1deb54cdd6d5f41643ebc5a1e&theme=light&widgetsVersion=c8fe9736dd6fb%3A1649830956492&width=550px

We hope you got a bit of a chuckle out of these. Work is always important, but sometimes it’s nice to goof off a little just to mix things up.
