[adult swim] pulled a fast one on us.

Last Sunday, the [adult swim] bumps promised an advanced viewing of “Aqua Teen Hunger Force Movie Colon Film for Theaters” on the following Sunday.

Guess what? The following Sunday happened to fall on April 1st: April Fools Day.

They aired it alright — in the bottom corner of the screen during the usual line-up — at the eye-popping resolution of 90×30.

Thanks, homies.

Some past April Fools’ gags from those jokers (from Wikipedia):

There was no prank in 2005 because it fell on a Friday, but in 2004, mustaches were drawn on characters during the shows. In 2006, the channel significantly changed its programming. InuYasha was replaced by the 1980s cartoon Karate Kommandos starring Chuck Norris, while Neon Genesis Evangelion was replaced by Boo Boo Runs Wild and Cowboy Bebop was replaced by Mister T. Full Metal Alchemist and Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG had their episodes edited so characters farted throughout the show, although they showed an unedited version of the Ghost in the Shell episode later in the night
