Video: Staff Pulls April Fools' Prank on Mitt Romney

Campaigning for president must take all of your focus, because Mitt Romney apparently forgot that Sunday was April Fools' Day. But his staffers didn't, and they pulled off a heck of a prank on their boss. And they were smart enough to capture it on videotape.

Romney thought he was attending a pancake brunch with supporters in Milwaukee. He stood backstage as Rep. Paul Ryan sang his praises. When he finally introduced Romney, the presidential wannabe walked out to find the room empty!

Now, this is not really anything new for Romney -- witness him speaking to a virtually empty football stadium in February. But unlike that debacle, this one was planned.
