Ondore's lies crossed international barriers :monster:

"poisson d'avril"

Means 'April Fools' in French, so I think they've catch on. But serves them right for not linking back to here :monster:

No wait:

ATTENTION: I said that our site will not April Fools' Day today (and this message is not one either [eyes]). I would ask you to consider this news as a real information. Thank you to you. I would add this message to all the news today. (Ben oui, now, with all the jokes on the net, it must be justified if one wants to be serious ...)

Apparently not? :awesomonster:

Epic April Fools day, everyone. I see we have international multilingual foolery going on.

Now to just hope someone in Japan got snookered. That would make my month.

To the people who wondered how I came up with all this, I rewatched the trailers, reread some Nomura, and thought of how I could say everything and nothing all at the same time.

I am surprised at the directions of the implications some of you took them, though. Some were obvious with the slight alterations (My initial drafts were even MORE vague), but for example, I'm surprised no one thought the message itself might be changed with the 20 minute ending bit, since that's what I had in mind when I crafted that sucker.

Dude, I didn't realize so many other sites would look to us for info.

Someone needs to let them know that it was a joke already. :comedian:
The Clerith from the Devotion forum apparently sent them an email. :monster:

EDIT: Checked the French site, Anastar informed them or so it seems. :rorschach:

I think it's also a 'via via' thingy - Cetraconnection posts it, which gets taken over by the French, which in turn... you get the idea.

But still, this was an excellent demonstration of how news we make can spread to other places, and this is a Good Thing, even if it was just a joke.

I say we let em stew. If they can't figure it out on their own then they deserve not to know the truth :monster:

Of course they would. They thought they had actual real proof of Clerith as opposed to the crap they make up on a daily basis. Why wouldn't they spread the word? :awesomonster:

Oh well that's good. A joke is a joke but I wouldn't want it to go too far...

Yeah I thought it was true at first and was so ecstatic that I made a totally fangirl comment (the first comment on the article!) before it started to sink into my head that it was a prank. And then Isabella told me that it was fake and just for temporary lulz and so I played along with it. :)

It was funny to see all these new people who only lurked before suddenly reveal themselves. XD
