Turns out that the Cincinnati Bengals weren’t the only organization that used April Fools’ Day as a way to tease the Cleveland Browns over their much-ballyhooed new logo unveiling earlier this year.
For those that need a reminder, this was essentially the radical redesign that the Browns debuted in February.
The Browns proudly trumpeted the brighter orange as something that is symbolically “reflective of today’s modern Cleveland.”
The Cleveland Orchestra used April 1st to lampoon that blatant attempt at pseudo-corporate branding.
