    Leave Britney Alone... after I've cried about her

avirginsplea.com was a viral marketing hoax that ended up getting completely out of hand: the initial idea was that a 25-year-old virgin from Toronto called Geoff needed 5m hits on his website to get his friend Jenn to sleep with him.

All fine, except that the web developer whose experiment this was used real names and photos: and Geoff Skerlan and Jenn were hounded for months by the likes of the New York Post. Whoops.
