Dr Mumbo

And the worst April Fool’s prank of 2023 goes to…

We’re still four days away from April Fool’s Day and Dr Mumbo is going to call it – the worst brand ‘prank’ has already been committed.

Dr Mumbo has a love/hate relationship with the average prankster’s favourite day of the year. It can just come across as a little desperate when not done right.

Iconic bean and ketchup maker, Heinz, has launched the hilarious prank of creating a ‘Beanz Bag’, which isn’t actually for sale.

Well, you had Dr Mumbo fooled at least!

At the fake price of just $28, maybe some bean-loving tragics out there in Australia might have actually indulged themselves, if Heinz weren’t such darn pranksters!

That seems to be the thing about these ‘pranks’, as we saw last year, they’re all just a bit ‘meh’. 

A press release read: “Used to accent a room, provide practical space saving additional seating, or simply a spot to devour your favourite Heinz inspired dinner, the Beanz Bag is an exciting new venture for the brand known typically for food alone.”

As you can probably tell, Dr Mumbo can’t wait to see what is to come over the next few days from Australia’s funniest brands…
