We’re in the thick of it — that time of the year when nothing and no one can be trusted. But there are some April Fools pranks that are more memorable than others. This one might take the cake.

Pink Parcel, a company that offers monthly packages with tampons and relaxing teas to make your period easier to manage, has recently unveiled their next big creation called Pleasurepon. The name pretty much gives it away, but if you are still playing catch-up, allow me to spell it out for you. Pleasurepon is a vibrating tampon, meant to “change the way women feel about their periods for good.”

Before we break it down, you should know that Pink Parcel is a very respectable company, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they have fooled a whole lot of people with this announcement. They’re advocates for abolishing the tampon tax and erasing period taboo for women everywhere. The pictures on their website and Instagram include thoughtful and useful (and cute!) items that no woman would ever turn away when she’s menstruating. From deodorant to panty liners to face masks, Pink Parcel has you covered.

However, this wild vibrating tampon claim has gone overboard just enough to make us think twice. Not many women are being fooled by the whole shindig.

Even though we don’t expect it to hit the shelves anytime soon, I know what’s running through your head. How would a vibrating tampon actually work? What would it feel like? Would I buy one?

Let your imagination run wild, my friend, because you definitely won’t have any answers come April Fools Day.
