If you only watch one April Fool’s video then make it this one, a police department video about a new type of police dog that went viral because it’s very funny and utterly adorable.

The clip went viral on Reddit after it was shared by ImAlwaysTilted_ and here are our favourite three things people said about it.

Hoax Story – Painted Ponies

In 1965, a Copenhagen newspaper ran an April Fool hoax claiming that the Danish parliament was going to require all black dogs to be painted white, in order to increase road safety by making the dogs more visible at night.

Fast forward to 2015. The Dartmoor Livestock Protection Society has launched a scheme to paint ponies with reflective blue stripes in order to allow motorists to see them more easily at night. The idea is that “motorists would not see the animal, but an ‘alien glow’ which should slow them down.” [BBC News, 10/2/2015]

Goes to show that, given enough time, all April Fool hoaxes eventually come true.
