Michael Strahan appeared to have changed up his iconic look on Tuesday, but had many wondering if it was actually an early April Fool’s joke.
The “Good Morning America” co-host shocked fans earlier this week, when he showed off his new smile, seemingly closing up the famous gap in his front teeth.
Strahan showed off his new look on social media, thanking Smile Design Manhattan for the mouth makeover.
But in a new video shared on Thursday afternoon, the former football pro revealed it was in fact a prank.
“I did it. #GoodbyeGap,” he had captioned the original clip.
Strahan knew he would get many people telling him not to do it, but the former NFL explained, “I gotta do what I wanna do for myself.”
“If I post about it, I would get ‘Don’t do it,'” he said in the clip. “If I told my friends, I would get, ‘Don’t do it.”
After his doctor showed Strahan the results, he was shocked, “I love it, holy f**k!.”
“Common man,” Strahan said in the new video. “The gap is here to stay. It’s not going anywhere anytime soon… April Fool’s everyone!”
