[UPDATE 7/25/13 11:34 A.M. PDT] Looks like Charles won’t be sniffing Taylor Swift’s hair anytime soon. KISS FM, the Boston-area radio station that promoted the “Taylor Swift’s Biggest Fan” contest, announced that it has been cancelled because the “integrity” of the contest had “been compromised.” The station added: “In accordance with our contest rules, effective immediately, the contest has been terminated. We apologize to all of our loyal listeners who have participated.”
4chan has managed to troll another Taylor Swift contest ….
Hilariously, brilliantly, the hive over at the world’s greatest and most benevolent website has managed to instill their own frontrunner for a “Meet Taylor Swift” photo op contest put on by a Boston-area radio station. The site, who stays consistently at the cutting edge of hilarity and bold maneuvering (whereas so so many lesser sites have fallen short), has propelled a 39-year-old chubby man named Charles into the front spot after a post on 4chan claiming to be from a friend of Charles asked for the help of the site to make the man achieve his dream.
“I’m a 39 year old man and I love Taylor so much and don’t care that both adults and children mock me for it. But I feel 22 if that helps,” reads a quote from Charles, included in the post.
According to the post, Charles’ real intent is to just smell her hair and make a total ass out of everyone involved, while the cameras roll (there’s no indications whether this “Charles” character is actually in on the joke though).
While the contest ends Sunday night at 11:59 p.m. EST, Charles might not make the final cut even if he finishes with the most votes. According to contest rules from KISS 108 in Boston, “votes generated by a robotic, programmed, script, macro, other automated means or other source” are not allowed.
Let me tell you this, KISS 108 in Boston, these 4chan folks are not the kind of people you want to mess with — them or their Anonymous army. They are hacker types who can mess your world up. TRUST ME. If I were you, I would just let this Charles guy win, let him pee on Taylor Swift or whatever and grin the entire time. Then NEVER EVER HOST A CONTEST AGAIN. But that’s just me.
