What’s hot pink, has wings, claws, fake eyelashes and a Batman logo? Don’t ask Google co-founder Sergey Brin, because whatever it is looks nothing like his prized Tesla Model S.
Or rather, it didn’t until his employees got their hands on it.
The folks at Google do things up big, including their April Fool’s Day jokes. Google employees brought pranking to a whole new level Monday by taking the boss’s sexy wheels and transforming them into a retina-searing horror.
They then posted the pic online, where it elicited a flurry of horrified but amused replies.
“That’s an abomination!” one person exclaimed.
“The person that did this doesn’t deserve that car,” another chimed in. “You should give it to me.”
Google employee Nathan Johns, who posted the episode to his Google+ page, explained it was a pink wrap, not a paint job. And that they made a point of adding the Google logo to the sweet rims.
Which is good, because even at Google, nobody’s job is that secure.
More: Then again, maybe this makes perfect sense. Because apparently Sergey Brin is Batman.
