April Fools 2015: Omegon’s Takeover!

aprilfools

Hi Gs,

Well, as some of you may have guessed, Tobor Aureum was just a clever disguise for Omegon – and once again he came into the real world and trapped us all. BT came up with the idea, then I took care of graphics and in the end we all played a part in an awesome April Fools’ prank this year.

Tobor Aureum, if you haven’t figured it out already, means Robot Golden, which would be Omegon. Tobor is just Robot backwards, and Aureum is Latin for golden.

As the day progressed he made two posts, one with a picture of a nice, young Poptropican, the next with some of his good looking attributes gone, and finally Omegon revealed the next day. Through it all, however, there was a red glow in his eyes that I’m surprised some of you didn’t catch immediately. (Oh, and Tobor’s thank-you post also contained a hidden message that was revealed after the takeover!)

I also updated the header and background to give off a more graffiti-ed vibe. 😛

I put together 4 trapped PHB author graphics, which were fun to make. Featuring Samwow5, Spotted Dragon, Slippery Raptor, and Slanted Fish in Omegon’s infamous electro-cells!

The final product was so worth the work and I was really glad to see a good plan come to fruition. 😀

Throughout the day, we had the PHB authors gradually change their profile pictures to henchbot avatars, and because we all live in different time zones, it gave off the effect of us being gradually converted (just as we will slowly convert back to our regular avatars).

Fishy also wrote a post to update everyone about the prank that Poptropica pulled this year, the floppy-disc Text Adventure – all in Omegon’s commentary. It’s pretty enjoyable to read, so head over there and give it a look see. 😉

The best thing about this prank, however, was the comments. The majority the time it was either me, BT, or Fishy who was commenting as Omegon, and the other authors joined in by pretending Omegon had taken over their accounts. I have to say that the conversations (and sometimes arguments) were just gold. The post “The Reign of Omegon lives,” got about 400 comments which is colossal, and through these we learned a few things about Omegon:

  • Omegon likes creme-filled donuts
  • He assigns numbers to his hench-bots
  • His electro-cages have themes
  • His middle name is FEAR
  • He talks in really annoying ALL CAPS

We also learned that some of you would willingly give themselves up to Omegon and join in the fun of being a hench-bot! What loyal fans we have… 😛 The comments are really witty, so go have a read!

omegon commentsAnyway, thank you, everyone, for the fun yesterday. It was really exciting and many of you had fun trying to solve the mystery of the Blogging Intern. Until next year…

//Ok, back to my donut — hey, where did it go? What is this?  Raw fish?! Wait… no… CRAWFISH?!//

    Lol. 🙂 But most of the people including me figured it that it was a april fool’s prank the moment you posted about the omegon taking over. 😄

    • adsuke says:

      If I remember correctly; bread face in his so-called ‘designer sturdy and fashionable suit’ (which I STILL think is a corn suit) was supposed to take all my donuts out of my electro cell! I think the electro cell was fun, though.

  2. Slippery Raptor says:

    My first April Fools prank here in the PHB was remarkable. It was fun responding to your comments and I think everyone had some fun too. Omegon won’t be coming back soon, though (He had too much donuts and sodas.). I finally got my phone back! 🙂

    • Hench-Bot says:

      I agree, too many donut breaks for THE GREAT OMEGON! I loved everything about this years prank! It was so fun to be a hench-bot! (At one point we had a Poetry Slam XD)

      • Slippery Raptor says:

        The Henchbot already self-destructed. The PHB Authors are experiencing slight amnesia. 😄

      • adsuke says:

        Very funny. Check the comments to remember then, fish-boy…
        …And I can’t stop ’til the whole world knows my name
        ‘Cause I was only born inside my dreams
        Until you die for me, as long as there’s a light, my shadow’s over you
        ‘Cause I, I am the opposite of AMNESIAAAAAAAAAA!

        Sound familiar, Rappy?

    BLAH BLAH BLAH EVIL THINGS BLAH BLAH BLAH DOMINATION BLAH BLAH BLAH I DONT KNOW HOW TO TURN OFF CAPS LOCK.

    Haha, yup, this was all my idea. I was the one who originally wrote when Omegon was disguised as Tobor and I also posed as Omegon a few times too. It was a lot of fun, honestly. Thanks, HP, for visualizing my idea! It was a fantastic effort from all of us.

    By the way, I still haven’t forgotten about those donuts. 😛

    • ★Brave Tomato★ says:

      The MFB one was fun too- writing with bad grammar took a lot more effort than I thought it would 😄

  4. moody tuna/ Brian says:

    brian (me) started typing in all CAPS like omegon and moody tuna (me) started going in binary code! (btw, brian likes cs)

  5. Prickly Monster 3000 ▂▃▅▇█▓ⒽⒶⒾⓁ ⓄⓂⒺⒼⓄⓃ▓█▇▅▃▂ says:

    Probably one of the best April Fools pranks ever. 😄 But the real question is: What happened to Cheerful Singer? 😮

    P.S. Can someone please get me out of this robot suit? I’m still stuck. ._.

  6. Samwow5 says:

    This was the best prank I have witnessed or done. The best part was lying to my friends that weren’t on the blog and saying there was gonna be no prank when ToborAureum showed up when there actually was going to be a prank xD Then replying to the comment; omg some of those comments were “golden” hehe see what I did there? LOL This was a great prank and I hope we fooled everyone 😛

    • Hench-Bot says:

      You missed all the fun 😦 But don’t worry… OMEGON IS ALWAYS HIRING, AND OMEGON NEVER SLEEPS! 😄 I’m sure you will be able to partake in next years prank! 🙂

  7. Itaka Narayanan says:

    Hey, guys; do me a favor – DON’T TELL NEE-SAN THAT I CHANGED HER GRAVATAR! I’m Rasuke; Adsuke’s little sister. I’m trying to prank her (Yes; I said ‘her’. Adsuke is a girl) by changing her gravatar. She told me something about ‘Fear’ so I just HAD to tell you what her fear is. You want to hear it? It’s VALENTINE’S DAY. She’s afraid of LOVE! I’m telling this to you so you can prank her. So; PWEEEEAAADE do this for me! I call this my puppy eyes! x picks up a puppy and holds him in front of the reader’s face x PWEETY PWEEADE!

    – PIKACHUUUUUU! x disappears x Owww…SASUKE! You’re so DUMB!

  8. Silver Wolf says:

    The April Fool’s prank was amazing this year! I especially liked reading the comments about Omegon and his *annoying* all caps replies. xD Although, as soon as a I read the Intern post I knew it had to be a prank, and I bugged Sam and SD about all day (you can ask them; I even thought that they were probably gonna take over the PHB)! I did notice the red eyes, too. They kinda creeped me out at first. o.o I didn’t think he would be Omegon, though…

    • Hench-Bot says:

      I know what you mean. I was surprised because I never had heard of ‘ToborAureum’ before and the “Blogging Intern” thing was so sudden. I suspected something, but not an Omegon takeover! It was the best prank the PHB has ever done, and it was so fun conversing with THE GREAT OMEGON. I loved everything about it and enjoyed being a Hench-Bot. I’ll never see Omegon without thinking of Creme-Filled donuts! 😄 “CRIES”

      • moody tuna says:

        *adding omegon to the list of things i miss,above cheerful singer (with hearts around her)*

      • adsuke says:

      • adsuke says:

      • adsuke says:

        x stone faced x You’re off to a bad start. I hate people who are lovestruck. I hate them even MORE when they’re my comrades. MOVE ON, bro. Or should I call Sakura over here?
