MediaPost reports that LonelyGirl15’s jig is up.
By last week, three consumer-detectives who had corresponded with “Lonely Girl” figured out that Bree’s e-mails were originating from Hollywood’s Creative Artists Agency. The revelations forced the site’s creators to finally admit the jig was up, though they have yet to reveal the entire story. “Thank you so much for enjoying our show so far,” they posted on an online forum devoted to LonelyGirl 15. “With your help we believe we are witnessing the birth of a new art form. Our intention from the outset has been to tell a story– A story that could only be told using the medium of video blogs and the distribution power of the internet.” The authors of the post promise that more details will come out in time. For now, many questions remain–including some questions about whether CAA really is behind the stunt, or if they’re being set up somehow.
Truth is, guys, I routed my own e-mail through CAA servers to “throw the dogs off their scent.” And the publicity-starved CAA folks couldn’t resist taking credit. Like the guy that didn’t send his wife flowers but claims them anyway.
The real truth is that LonelyGirl was my creation to promote CubeBreak.
In future episodes I was going to have a CB picture on the wall. Then she’d be wearing CB shirts. Then her boyfriend would toss his magazine and decide to visit CubeBreak to get a healthy relief from LonelyGirl’s self indulgence.
Coolest part that hasn’t hit the “big media” yet is that I made her using Computer Facial Animation. She’s not real. I had my nephew’s face 3-D imaged, and used that as the basis.
