CONVERSION: 3D to 2D glasses from Think Geek

I’m a geek, and I really enjoy April Fools Day every year for geeky pranks on the Internet. Nobody does it better than the fabulous website Think Geek. One of my favorite 2011 pranks was the “De-3D Cinema Glasses“—the copy says, “You’ve been there before, a movie is playing in both 2D and 3D, all your friends want to see the 3D version… so what can you do? Finally, ThinkGeek has the solution to deliver old skool 2D images to your tired eyes with the De-3D Cinema Glasses.”

Futuristic 3D Movies… Make Us Sick

  • Converts standard 3D movies in to relaxing 2D
  • Eliminates headaches and nausea associated with 3D movies
  • Works with current 3D movies in theaters using RealD 3D technology”
Very cute, right?  When you click to “order” it tells you “GOTCHA”. But now when you click there is a red banner saying “OMG it’s real!”  It turns out this is now a product.
Again, the copy says:

Both descriptions also feature this illustration showing how it works:
 Pretty funny when life imitates Think Geek April Fools pranks.  I’m buying a pair, I’ll let you know what happens.
