In case you didn’t catch it over the weekend, here is the 2011 Google April Fools prank for every Gmail user out there. Gmail Motion, a new gesture based, web cam activated way to use Gmail that converts your natural movements to email conversations, you’ll know it’s a joke after just a few seconds, but they’ve done a decently good job of throwing this whole idea together, including an additional two “expert” videos (below) to help backup the idea. (also coming soon to Google Docs!)

The video certainly grabbed some traction over the weekend, with over 5 million views recorded in just three days, and is sitting at #1 on the viral video charts. To complete the experience, Check out the fake Gmail Motion site here. Or continue on to see
