(CNN) - It's April Fool’s Day, which means that if you see something too fantastic to be true, it probably isn't.

These days, corporations like to get in on the April Fool’s Day game, and Burger King is no exception.

They've posted a video announcing the chocolate whopper. It boasts a chocolate cake bun, raspberry syrup instead of ketchup, and white chocolate rings instead of onions.

Other notable corporate pranks this year include T-Mobile’s introduction of the smartphone shoe, and Auntie Anne’s promise to start marketing pretzel-scented essential oils.
