Why did IGN make a fake movie trailer for the legend of zelda game?

I know it is suppose to be an april fool's day joke, but why go to all that trouble for a joke, hire actors, and spend all that time and money? It doesn't make much sense to me.

    The ign people have been doing this for years....they like to play with people feelings. I dont think they cared about the actors and cameras and time wasted. they get paid to do that. Think of it as a small publicity stunt, more people here of it more people check out the website.
