Ever heard of the Google Nose? Nope me neither, hence the innate desire to click on this uncharted waters that's concept was so cool! Apparently Google Nose meant you could smell items through your computer, phone etc. I was captivated and entranced.

Needless to say I couldn't smell anything so I eventually admitted defeat and clicked on the Need Help? button and was told the following

It took me a while to notice the It is April Fools' Day. I felt very stupid but have to concede it was hilarious and Google had done well. It was very funny to watch my dad trying to smell the Beach from my dear laptop...
Tehehehe, I think it must be one of the first April Fools I've falled for!
Love it! <3
