How Low, Hooba, How Low?

Just to show how far it's gone before Wiki gets around to deleting it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoobastank#Iranian_protest_controversy

Beginning 15 June 2009, the band began playing a prank on Iranian protesters and their supporters during the 2009 Iranian election protests using the popular Web 2.0 service Twitter and the shock image Goatse, featuring a naked man stretching his anus to a large size with both hands, with the inside of his rectum clearly visible.[17] While thousands of protesters used the Twitter service to rapidly spread information on street level protests and the shocking behavior of pro-government militias and security forces, links to the image disguised as relevant news items were sent to millions of fans and followers across the globe. The punk rockers once announced their satisfaction with the number of the political enthusiasts having viewed the image unintentionally (over 2 million, according to the site's usage statistics). As is typical for a failed publicity stunt, Robb denied the accounts used were his in a terse online statement June 19, after outraged backlash had begun.[18] As of June 2009[update], Twitter's official verification system for celebrities has not exonerated Hoobastank. Although die-hard fans trust the band, public denunciations of Hoobastank continue to circulate across the blogosphere.

I tip my hat to you, sir, I am in total awe.

This has to be a fake story. I mean, Hoobastank is anything but a punk rock band.
