Google is known for their April Fool's Day pranks – people wait with baited breath to see what Google will pull out of their hats each April Fool's Day.

Well, today's the day! And this joke is one of Google's best: Gmail Motion. Gmail Motion is Google's way of encouraging extra exercise by requiring certain movements to control Gmail.

Google isn't the only web company getting in on the April Fool's Day prank action. YouTube is getting in on the action with YouTube 1911 and the best viral videos from 100 years ago.
