Jessica Lowndes and Jon Lovitz pulled off the best April Fools' prank we've seen in a while. Lowndes and Lovitz fooled the entire Internet world into thinking they were engaged with a series of social media posts. Some of the posts included a massive engagement ring, a video of Lowndes in bed with Lovitz's voice in the background, an older man's hand on Lowndes' thigh, etc. Every single post had a thought-out, suggestive caption that caused everyone to go into an immediate frenzy.

Lowndes put the rumors to rest with an Instagram video, in which she asks, "I know it's still the last week of March, but is it too early to say April Fools'?" She spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the epic prank, which was to promote her (real) music career. "I was shocked by the people in my life who believed me and were congratulating me. I thought people were going to know it was a joke but no one did," she revealed. The inspiration behind the whole thing? "Last year on April Fools’ Day it leaked that I was doing the Lifetime movie with Will Ferrell (A Deadly Adoption) and so this year I wanted to do an April Fools’ joke of my own a few days early."

Well, she certainly fooled, uh, everyone.
