We're still laughing today about yesterday's suggestion that the Sandbar jukebox was booting Jimmy Buffett in favor of teen pop. The fact that "Party in the USA" and other songs by kids too young to even enter the bar have been played a lot probably gave credibility to this proposal.
Even more amusing, it seemed that at least one current employee fell for the prank (ahem, Danny).
We are not changing the jukebox. And we are absolutely not removing Jimmy Buffett. That would be blasphemy.
Some of my favorite comments on our Facebook page yesterday:
"The jukebox is the heart of the Sandbar. Please don't change it too much."
"If the Sandbar yanks Buffett, the Sandbar
shall no longer be the Sandbar … :("
And the absolute best comment, in my humble opinion:
Oh dear sweet baby Jesus, let this be a
cruel April Fools! We don't change the Bible and we don't mess with The
Best Damn Jukebox in North America! If you must make amendments plz fix
the Elvis and Buffett cd's that skip. More Buffett and mas tequila!!
It was clear that a few of our fans checked the calendar. We loved this compliment (thanks Brad!):
"This may be the best April Fool's Joke I've seen this year … bravo."
I sincerely hope that we didn't send anyone into unnecessary panic mode yesterday. Rest assured, we love our jukebox as much as you do.
What pranks fooled you yesterday?
Sandbar, please do not take them all away!"
