Internet Pranksters Sending Taylor Swift to School for Deaf
If there’s one thing you have to love about the internet, it’s that it has the power to send Pitbull to Alaska. Online pranksters are once again flexing their muscle (specifically the one that clicks a mouse) in an effort to make Taylor Swift perform at a school for the deaf.
People all over the web have joined forces to hijack the “Taylor Swift on Campus” contest and send the singer to the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
4Chan apparently came up with the idea to rig the contest, which smells like so much fresh, delicious troll bait that the rest of the internet couldn’t resist. Horace Mann School already has near 25,000 votes, and we’re going to assume that number will continue to grow. There isn’t a scoreboard to view votes, but we’re going to assume that’s probably leaps and bounds above their competition. Of course, according to the official rules of the contest, Swift could back out and not perform to avoid being the butt of the internet’s joke, but what kind of horrible person would that make her?
If you too cannot resist the sweet allure of punking Taylor Swift, go to the Taylor Swift on Campus website. Then you’ll have to ‘like’ Taylor Swift on Facebook (you can adamantly swear to your friends it’s for a prank and hope they believe you), then enter the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. You can vote every day, if that’s the sort of thing that gets you your jollies.
