Justin Bieber Takes Over 'Funny Or Die' For April Fools (video)

Websites typically have a field day on April 1st, surprising unexpecting visitors with drastic revamps, sensational news stories, and fake company buy-outs.

Google, for instance, claimed they were changing their name to "Topeka" after the Kansas city decided to change their name to "Google." ABC.com, on the other hand, unveiled a line of new shows like "Flasher Forward" and "Dancing With The Tsars."

If you fell for any of these, you must be the office favorite this time of year.

The best of the bunch, however, had to be Funny Or Die, which appeared to be taken over by teen pop sensation Justin Bieber.

Visitors to the site were treated with a video greeting from everyone's favorite moppet baby telling them he bought the site, now called "Bieber Or Die."

The homepage was filled with Bieber-related videos, some of which were hybrids of familiar memes like Bieber After Dentist and OMG Bieber Vs. Chuck Norris Vs. Bear.

Say what you will about his musical style, but the titular tyke has a surprisingly knack for comic timing.
