Pacaleala de 1 Aprilie pentru New-Yorkezi

Imi cer scuze New Yorkezilor daca se vor simti jigniti(sper ca nu,e doar o gluma),dar mie mi s-a parut teribila pacaleala asta.

(NewsCore) - New Yorkers were left angry and demoralized Thursday after signs put up around the city announcing the imminent arrival of In-N-Out Burger outlets turned out to be a cruel April Fools' Day joke.

Posters on empty storefronts in several New York city locations declared “In-N-Out Burger, Coming Summer 2010,” according to several readers of popular NYC food blogs .

In one of the locations, the empty storefront vacated by Virgin Megastore in Union Square, jokers dressed up as In-N-Out Burger employees could be seen handing out flyers to passers-by.

The popular West Coast fast-food chain, headquartered in Irvine, Calif., could not be reached for comment, but Eater NY reported that the real estate agent for the space at the Union Square location said no lease had been signed by the popular burger joint and that it "sounds like someone’s having some fun on April Fools."

The privately-owned In-N-Out Burger has approximately 250 outlets, all on the West Coast of the U.S.

The chain has achieved a devoted following due its depiction in movies like "The Big Lebowski" and "Swingers," and has benefited from the endorsement of several celebrities who have declared their undying love for the fast-food chain.

It was unknown who perpetrated the elaborate hoax.

New Yorkers reacted angrily on blog postings and social networking sites.

“Meanest prank ever. EVER,” wrote one dispirited New Yorker.

On Twitter, another wrote "That's not just mean, it's evil."
