So, a site called "SomethingAwful.com," well-known for its alternate views on the web, was asked to come on G4 and do an interview with their "alternate" venue, "Attack of the Show." One of the owners of the site, Lowtax, dared the other, David Thorpe, to completely make something up. "I think you should concentrate on making SA seem like the worst site in the world," he said. "Seriously, make sure everything you say is 100% wrong. Don't answer any questions legitimately. I want people who never heard of SA before the interview to think it's a horrible site and never want to visit." He added, as a final threat, "If I look at the SA stats and notice traffic has spiked after your interview, I'm going to know you did a terrible job."
The interview is deadpan funny. The demographic stereotype G4 picked to interview him looked like the hosts of TRL watching a sodomy spontaneously happen in the studio audience. "Doctor" David Thorpe totally verbally moons G4. He makes up the weirdest stuff, completely trashes his own site, and not in a funny "Mad Magazine usual gang of idiots" way, either.
And I am clapping. Video link in thread.
