Can't wait to send my first rager to the staff. But what will jazz hands get you? [Gmail Motion]

Update: And the boys and girls at Google Voice are at it as well. Not as in-depth, but still entertaining.

By the way: This is the one and only April Fools story you'll see here today. We've got too much actual news to cover, and, frankly, we're just not that fun anyway. So fear not, anything you read here today is the honest to goodness truth, unless it's not.

April Fools!

MowDownJoe says:

Heh... it became obvious to me that today was April Fool's day when I went to reddit and saw that r/Android was using r/iPhone's stylesheet and visa-versa.

rht_rv says:

you guys JUST tweeted that you arent doing any april fools jokes.....

Ummmm this is not "their" April fools joke

rht_rv says:

they also said they will not report on any april fools jokes: this is from their twitter account: "For the record: We don't do April Fools stories, we don't report on April Fools stories. #thatisall"

KoalaGrip says:

Or the tweet that they won't be doing an April fool was indeed an April fool.

The old double!

rht_rv says:

i figured...LOL

graison says:

The tweet was a misdirect.

Where do I sign up to be a beta tester ;-)

This is pretty funny. It's worth going to gmail.com/motion to see the PDF cheat sheet.

jpprice says:

Lol. That video was pretty awesome.

tgaskill says:

You mean you're not going to report on Sprint's big announcement that the Kyocera Echo is an elaborate April Fools' Day joke?

inuchan says:

I would totally do this at work if I could.

jelly roll says:

I like how unenthusiastic the guy is

dany8907 says:

Awwww man, you got me, until I read the blog. I watched the video first.

I want to see the vid where a women is sending a erotic content email to her husband or boyfriend!

Droid-One says:

I was watching this video saying to myself, who the hell is going to use this. too funny

inyrules says:

I like the motion for "Barbados."

Droid hungry says:

If only this were real wouldn't that be cool?

This Gmail Motion is a waste....

The demo guy should get a grammy for this one. LOL!

bontjes says:

I couldn't agree more!

GQ50 says:

Too damn funny...wow! I'm just imagining everyone at my office, at their desk doing this, with this guys serious face. I'd be in tears all day..

bontjes says:

This is actually really funny, but I can't help but think that the deaf and hard of hearing community might actually like something like this with their ASL skills. Who knows, maybe some day! :)

mswashu says:

I thought of ASL too when I saw the video, but that goofy/serious look on the demonstrator's face gave the whole thing away. Good one Google!

SterlingVT says:

Video looks like a SNL skit.

macdonx says:

Paul McDonald is cute!

jimmiekain says:

the whole time I watched I thought it was a joke until the licking of the stamp motion... then i knew it was.... Pretty good thought.
