Brace yourselves. The April Fools' jokes just keep on coming!

Everyone knows that anything they read on the Internet on April 1 should be taken with a grain of salt. Over the years we've seen some pretty decent pranks (insert shameless self-promotion) as companies, writers and celebrities all compete to create the ultimate April Fools' prank. With that being said, maybe this year we should all hold off, because it seems as though the actor behind Gregor Clegane (a.k.a The Mountain That Rides) from Game of Thrones has already knocked it out of the park.

Hafþór Júlíus "Thor" Björnsson, the Icelandic Hercules who recently broke a 1000-year-old record, released a video yesterday for his newest endeavor, HeavyBubbles.

HeavyBubbles is apparently a new brand of sparkling water that comes with the tagline "sparkling water that makes your sweat" — except that it won't because the whole thing is a brilliantly thought-out joke. Check out Björnsson's ad for HeavyBubbles below:


I especially appreciated the tiny disclaimer which explicitly tells viewers, "Don't believe every on the Internet."

Bravo, Hafþór Björnsson, bravo.

Is this the best April Fools' prank of 2016?
