We're Bringing Kim Back!
April Fools Recap
Blogs4Bauer's successful April Fools Day prank made us the scorn of 24 geeks from Valencia to France. How successful you ask?
We published the first "spoiler" that Kim Bauer will return in episode 23 and end up being held hostage by a mole at CTU on Thursday at 3:20 pm. We also setup the firstname.lastname@example.org email address and it was soon hit by people informing "Manny" that we published his email address along with the information about Cougar Bait. One emailer decried spoilers and then asked Manny for more inside information! Our little prank also made it onto Total Fark, 24 Forum, IMDB, and other web boards.
We could tell by Friday that we'd better break the prank early because of how fast the news spread and also to inform people while we still had their attention. So at 8:54am on Friday we posted the second and final "spoiler". We also informed the people that emailed "Manny" that it was just a joke.
So if we got you, Happy April Fools Day and no hard feelings. We even fooled a guy from France,which is apparently not that hard to do.
