    The fact some many news sites believed it was a real press release proves you guys did a awesome job.

    Thanks guys! Trust me, we had great ideas on making an epic prank but most of the peeps bailed out. As mentioned before, subtle seeds like "Pirate Rangers" naming and domain tracebacks were left to ensure that this is a prank and not official. Unfortunately, this prank was so "official" that it did reach the higher ups.

    Just remember one thing...RangerCrew knows how to prank in style!

    Well, I will admit I was fooled and had it posted on PowerBoards.tk as news. I realized later it was a prank and took it down. Nice prank, too bad it was so "real" looking that I (and from the sounds of it many others) thought it was real and reposted it as such. I know it wasn't in spite or anything like that. I just now feel silly for having posted that as news on our site.

    Okay here's the situation...I saw this on a youtube video and tried it out, something suspicious. Click the link below...
    www.mightymorphinpiraterangers.com

    You click it thinking that it was a hoax, but yet it takes you directly to the Power Rangers.com website.
    What is that all about? Is it a hoax? I will look into it, but if anyone else can shed some light that would be great.
    I know Rangercrew did an April Fool's Day prank about Mighty Morphin Pirate Rangers, but this appears to be something different that that.

    No, this is the same domain that Mesh bought for the hoax and has it set to redirect to powerrangers.com. It's RC's April Fool's Joke for 2012.

    Okay, thanks for clearing it up. Maybe Saban will ask to buy the domain off you?
