Hamburger Helper drops album by Minnesota pranksters and it's great

- In an epic April Fools’ prank, Hamburger Helper, America’s favorite glove, dropped a fake album and it’s actually pretty good.

The Minneapolis-based General Mills line of boxed starches released “Watch The Stove,” a nod to Kanye West and Jay Z’s “Watch the Throne.”

Minnesota State University-Mankato grad and owner of DEEN photography, Wale Agboola, photographed and concepted the album cover that made its way to Comedy Central, The LA Times, Mashable, Entertainment Weekly, AdWeek and others this week. General Mills also enlisted Minnesota rap team Dequexatron X000, social media personality Retro Spectro and students of McNally Smith College of Music to produce the music.
