Turns out that some April Fool’s jokes are too good to be true. The “hotelicopter” hoax is another fine example. In late March of 2009 a website not surprisingly named Hotelicopter decided to promote their new revamped website (which is intended to be a hotel search engine) by announcing the “world’s first hotelicopter.”
“Experience the adrenaline rush of taking off and flying in the largest helicopter ever produced. The Hotelicopter features 18 luxurious rooms fro adrenaline junkies seeking a truly unique and memorable flying experience”.
Wait a minute. Is this idea really so far fetched? I for one could see one of these being built. Why the hell not? Anyway, for pictures of the alleged copter take a look after the jump
Più che un elicottero mi pare un super hotel.
Come hanno giustamente segnalato Stonedmanworking e Cracker la notizia è una bufala alla quale hanno abboccato anche i giornalisti de Corriere Della Sera, pubblicandola sul quotidiano.
Un mega FAIL per me.
