April Fools: BuzzPigs, Muppet Fans Who Go Viral

If you happened to stop by ToughPigs on April 1st, you might not have recognized what you saw.  Or maybe you did, because the entire site underwent a very familiar transformation.

In celebration of April Fools Day, ToughPigs became BuzzPigs, a website for all your clickworthy and viral article needs!  We wrote a total of 20 new articles that poked fun at the Buzzfeed style with silly lists, pointless videos, bizarre quizzes, and more.

In the spirit of keeping our archives clear of fake articles, we removed them all from the site.  But don’t worry, you’ll still be able to read them all!  Click below to view each article, take each quiz, and watch each video!

As you can see, we clearly won the internet.  If such a thing was feasible.  Or if such a thing made sense at all.

And we have to thank our contributors who helped make this April Fools gag possible: ToughPigs writers Julia Gaskill, Evan G., Staci Rosen, and Matt Wilkie, and ToughPigs’ resident artist Chris “Smig” Smigliano for creating our new temporary header.

We’ve done some pretty great April Fools Day events in the past!  Click here to read about them all!

Now let’s see if we can top this one in 2016!
