Man at first I was thinking this was for real and I was getting pissed off, but then I realized what day it is, and that Tom has done this before. Thank god nothing is changing.


I am a new terror born in death, a new superstition entering the unassailable fortress of forever. I am legend.

OMG, I thought you were SERIOUS. I was getting all creeped out and saddened! And then... I read the next post "I liked the joke last year..."

lmao... Oh goodness, Tom, I love you. You're so hot ~.^

I really do hope you're joking. I mean, seriously, Gary doesn't need more attention.

You really are kidding... right? o.o

Woah! Ya almost had me there Tom! I actually believed that Newgrounds was gonna change to Numagrounds. Like some other people, it was convincing up to the part where you mentioned the housewives making up most of the demographic. I almost had a heart attack! :) By the way, I wasn't here last April. Can anyone show me the McNewgrounds banner I've been hearing so much about?

These women really loved that video of Gary. Our market research shows that housewives in their mid-30s to late-40s are THE TARGET demographic on the web. They have time to browse and money to spend.

nice, very nice :D
great joke, especially newgrounds
bieng such a big business that it
looks at charts and graphs of
target demographic of mid life
housewives...then again...it could
be true :P

So it has been decided that NG could benefit a bit from a change in attitude... A new brand for new times. I've decided that Gary and the Numa Numa Dance are the perfect icon for this next step, hence I am now re-branding Newgrounds as NUMAGROUNDS. From now on, please point your browser to http://www.numagrounds.com. It is currently set to redirect, but the total transfer will be complete in the next 30 days

wow my first post :p anyways hopefully well all look at this site tomorrow and tom will have a new message posted that says april fools it just wont be the same as numagrounds n without the big tank whats the new icon gonna be anyways a giant picture of his face on everything? my days get worse n worse

Numagrounds. If you think about it, that is a more logical name jump than McNewgrounds, and thus more funny, however less likely to actually happen.

How about the asian purchase and renaming of VietNamgrounds?
Or Star Bucks presents Coffeegrounds?
Or the Christian Coalition takes you to the Holyground?
Or the Native American furtherment society's theyusedtobeOurgrounds?
Huh? Huh?

Okay, so I'm not that funny.

Happy April Fools ^__^ lol the best thing of this is that you registered a new domain for the joke. Anyway, I rather have the McNewgrounds joke, cause there where more changements. Good one though!

you have got to be kidding me tom. please tell me this a joke. since when do you guys care so much about what the media thinks? if this is for real, you could have chosen something other than Numa Numa Dance as the mascot. maybe i'd fit the bill. :) anyways. when i come back tommorow, the good old NG tank better be back.
