Wow guys, I must give you props. That was a great april fools joke! It was kinda strange to see a day with no Aldrine on the UU. Great Job guys, keep it up. Punch your selfs in the arm for that!:D

Well played indeed... I got a kick out of reading the mixed reactions here on the forum...

But then, that's the kind of thing that's really to be enjoyed with a prank, no?

i still wouldnt be surprised if he was signed for a label, Aldrine is really good at singing, playing both ukulele AND guitar, and is just a great guy to be around. well done prank UU admins.

Yea I am sure he is becoming a better artist along with all of the other UU members, the difference is he has 10 years experience. I am sure as the uke grows in popularity he will be one of the first with a deal on a major label. The good part is he sings which is where people like Jake S. and James H. are limited.

That was a good joke. You had me.

First I thought: "what a stupid record company - really bad business sense"

Then I was like frantically downloading lessons.

Pretty funny guys - thanks for all the time I wasted at work yesterday!:D

Yep. the hallmark of a great prank. Even though you know deep down it has to be a prank, they put enough effort into it that even the most stout of heart give pause and wonder, "Would they really go to that much trouble for a prank?"

Yes, yes they would. But only if they really care. *grin*

well i feel cheated out of a live lesson :mad:
I bet A.G (oh captain my captain) got a fuzzy feeling for all the messages of support. (and how many complaints in his inbox?)

P.s Rayan - get off the xbox and sing some more - you have a good voice

In a word, epic. This was definitely the best April Fools' prank I have ever seen. :shaka:

I was like "huh?" "the best you've ever seen?"

Then I saw that you are just 19. :D

You should see some good ones in your time. ;)

I thought that i had managed all day not to get fooled, then I took a look at UU for my daily uke fix only to find everything gone! I truly was gutted, glad it was just a prank ha ha
