Trent Reznor plays April fool's joke on world

When I got into work today, everything on my desk was turned upside down. 
All of my pictures, my keyboard, even my chair. Not bad. 
But that pales in comparison to Trent Reznor's fantastic April fool's prank on the world — a new fake album, "Strobelight."
Reznor announced the new release on Twitter today and fans quickly flocked to the Nine Inch Nails Web site where they were greeted with a funky drum loop and awesome Kanye West-esque album cover, seen here.  
The Web site asks fans to enter their email to recieve the new full length — produced by Timbaland, of course — after which their credit card will be charged $18.98 plus a $10 "digital convenience fee." Brilliant. 
Unfortunately after entering an email address you are greeted with a faux fatal error prompt with the words APRL_FLS
Too bad, with tracks like "Pussygrinder" (featuring Sheryl Crow) and "Laid, paid and played" (featuring Fergie), it would have been an amazing record. Kudos Trent.
