Happy Belated Valentine's Day!

In light of yesterday's Fishwatch post, here's something that should make you feel better. There is a high probability that this is fake, but if it isn't, it's incredibly cruel/amazing.

Basically, this UNC student found out his girlfriend cheated on him, and plotted revenge. He pretended he had planned something special in the middle of campus for her on V-Day, and brought in the a cappella group the Lorelies to serenade her. Except that they sang "Not Ready To Make Nice," and then he confronted her about cheating on him.

Oh, yeah, and he had invited hundreds of people to come watch. At various points, they all begin chanting "Slut! Slut! Slut!"

Whether or not it's fake, it does touch on some very important gay Valentine's Day themes: bitterness, vengeance, and of course, fierce a cappella.

I didn't realize The Scarlet Letter was a comedy. Unless this is like, really well choreographed satire or someone's multimedia sociology thesis, it's not really "amazing" to call a girl a slut in public and then post it on Youtube, is it?

Two things. 1) There is another link which is more clear and also makes it more obvious that this is fake: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTnCYkBnHZ8 (listen to her dialogue)
2) If it was real, we're not saying it's an amazing thing to do to someone. It's amazing that someone was cruel enough to DO it. And then, of course, post it on the internets.

Damn kids would do anything for their 15 minutes these days.

Bride-to-be losing it and cutting hair anyone? Or is that medieval history already by Youtube time?
