News broke late last month about the worlds first flying hotel, dubbed The Hotelicopter, and its inaugural flight this coming June. Seemed pretty awesome and the fancy website (note: we swear, the original web address did not include april fools in the URL) with video footage of the helicopter-cum-hotel in flight convinced me that this aviation history in the making was indeed blog worthy. Thankfully, I was a little late on the uptake and had yet to post the item when fellow Shermans blogger informed me that the whole hotelicopter hoopla was a hoax! The fake 5-star copter was a genius April fools joke, orchestrated by the folks behind Yotel (notice the helicopters interiors bear a striking resemblance to that of a Yotel), and it had the travel industry tweeting away. The hotelicopter also got a large public following on facebook and twitter. Well done Yotel.
