A Little Fun with Top 404 Error Pages

I’m sure we can all agree just how frustrating a user experience can be when encountering the dreaded, 404 Error Page. Unfortunately, these pages tend to be useless and plain old boring. Although a “Fail Whale” may not fit your Company’s image, when possible, spruce up your 404 Error Page a bit and make it more engaging and entertaining. The very thought of encountering a 404 Error Page is disappointing as it is for users, so why not try to give them a laugh to calm the situation?

Mashable previously featured a handful of fun examples of 404 Error Pages. Below are my top 10 (in no particular order):

1. Center’d
2. Itchy Robot!
3. Urban Outfitters
4. Apparent Etch
5. Adham Dannaway
6. iContact
7. iWearYourShirt
8. SLBJ Women’s Conference
9. Zappos
10. Bit.ly

I hope you had a laugh or two with the above list. Do you have any fun 404 Error Pages to add to the list?
