Ooops, sorry. I should have been more specific. The article you posted is from when the creators admitted to the hoax. So technically you’re right, that’s when it was determined to be a definite hoax. But my article is from a few years later after some people tracked down exactly who the creators and the actors are and the whole story has finally come out. In other words, now we know “who” did it, not just that they did it.
Actually, both of our articles are from the 13th. The one I posted does have more details in it. There is more to the article than the little bit I quoted. I should have specified that.
But it’s not a big deal. I just got a chuckle from it and thought I’d point it out.
