I happened to catch the "breakup" just a couple hours after it was posted on gootube. A friend sent me a link. Now we find out that the entire thing was staged and they were actually actors.
Valentine's Day breakup of two North Carolina college students that featured singers, hundreds of spectators and a profanity-laced tirade was a hoax after all.
Ryan Burke confessed Monday that the confrontation, which became an instant hit on YouTube.com, was all a stunt to show the power of Internet communities and the amount of money that companies make from them. The pair weren't even dating.
The fake breakup garnered plenty of attention, including more than 747,000 hits on YouTube, where users post video online, and local and national media coverage. "The fact that actual news agencies are interested was a surprise," Burke told The Charlotte Observer. "
See why I don't trust break-ups, make-ups or even proposals? ;)
Trust nothing of what you hear and only 50% of what you see.
unless it's youtube/ facebook/ other kid scrawl (e.g., myspace) in which case scrub that 50% and make it 1%
Youtube = Jerry Springer for nerds. Everyone wants to try their acting skills.
I'm with you - I have been sent a couple links that wre halfway interesting. I think people have entirely too much time on their hands if they spend any amount of time on those types of sites.
