Even Easter Sunday didn’t stop PR and marketing pros from embracing April Fools’ Day.
Netflix’s team flexed their creative muscles to announce that the company had acquired comedian Seth Rogan:

The company issued a press release with more information:
World-renowned Canadian person, prolific marijuana-doer, and winner of the 2015 MTV Movie Award for “Best Kiss” Seth Q. Rogen has entered into a lifetime deal to transfer full ownership of his personal autonomy to Netflix, Inc.
“I have known Seth for many years” said senior Netflix Development Executive Jareth Chumley. … In the end we settled on a price a little higher than a standard Chili’s To-Go entree, but I’ll be damned, not by that much.”
