Best April Fools Day video ever.

Spaghetti Harvest - 1957

On April 1, 1957 the BBC broadcast a three-minute segment on the spaghetti harvest in southern Switzerland.

The Swiss Spaghetti Harvest hoax generated an enormous response. Hundreds of people phoned the BBC wanting to know how they could grow their own spaghetti tree. To this query the BBC diplomatically replied, Place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best.

To this day the Panorama broadcast remains one of the most famous and popular April Fools Day hoaxes of all time. It is also believed to be the first time the medium of television was used to stage an April Fools Day hoax.  - APTS
Enjoy the greatest hoax ever.
