“Gmail Blue” April Fools’ Joke Made Real With Chrome Extension

I called it!

Out of all of Google’s April Fools jokes, I thought that Gmail Blue was the funniest because it was so simple, it could be totally believable. I even joked to N that someone will create a Gmail Blue theme, but little did I realize that the public wasn’t able to create custom themes. My dreams weren’t lost though: someone has come to the rescue with a Google Chrome extension that gives you the Gmail Blue theme!

The Gmail Blue video was seen by almost 3.5 million people since it came out on Sunday and I’m surprised that Google didn’t actually create a blue theme to extend the joke like YouTube did yesterday by reading off the names and descriptions of their videos for twelve hours. I know it’s not that difficult because I do that kind of stuff every day. If you want to check out the extension for yourself, head on over here.
