Google Calendar adds 'Feeling Lucky button'

In 2008 one of Google's April Fools pranks was a new feature in Google Calendar. They added the 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button, which wasn't a real feature!

April fools day of: Google

Google added the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button to its calendar feature which is also featured in the normal Google search engine.

When a user tries to create a new event, the user was given the regular option of entering the correct details and hitting "Create Event", and also the new option of "I'm Feeling Lucky" which would set the user up with an evening date with, among others, Matt Damon, Eric Cartman, Tom Cruise, Jessica Alba, Pamela Anderson, Paris Hilton, Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, Anna Kournikova, Johnny Depp, George W. Bush, or Lois Griffin.

We think it's a nice feature, but unfortunately it was an April Fools prank by Google.
