A few weeks ago (as of today August 2012) a friend of mine from Ohio posted a hilarious picture of himself posing next to a monitor with a picture of some un named girl. Before I even had a chance to "like" it he has already taken it down citing "Mal is pissed."
Much to my delight 10 minutes later there was a picture of his roommate and co-worker posing with a monitor with the original picture. I thought this was so funny that I had to get in the act from all the way in Washington DC. A few more of his co-workers, and a few more of mine later, and we had tapped out our co-worker resources.
We posted this awesome image thread to facebook, and after tapping out our friend resources on facebook, we knew where we had to go with this epic troll. Reddit. A place filled with fun loving people that were equally willing to procrastinate on a lazy friday after lunch.
Less than 24 hours later, we had 55 pictures in the series and 1.8 million imgur views.
We brought this series back to Mal, and her original reaction changed to thinking it was worth it for the laughs, and finished out the series with her last post.
Here's the final album:
To thank everybody that helped us out on this epic troll, I made the video. A special thanks to my buddy @hodgesmr for being hilarious and thinking up the original idea, Mal for putting up with the ridiculousness, my friends for helping me out with the original batch of pictures, Stephen and Ed for staying after work to help me manage the ridiculous amount of comments and pictures all flying at my Reddit account all at once, and Reddit for the lols.
A lesson on social media? Maybe. A fun time with friends. No Doubt.
