Gotcha! These brave viewers watched and discussed the April Fools' Day 2010 episode of Today on the Spot. Were they fooled? Did they really think GameSpot had moved into THE THIRD DIMENSION?! Hard to say. But we thank them for their viewership anyway! As a reward, here is a picture of a moderately creepy clown, who is edible. Meet Mr. Hashclown!
