So there's this new video that has gone viral, hitting the #1 spot on Alexa.com's "What's Hot" list, and gathering more than 600,000 views on YouTube in various copies of the video.
First off, watch the video, titled "Husband gets revenge on wife after finding her profile on an online dating site" in most copies on YouTube.
What's odd is that the video is dated January 25, 2013, a good 19 days before Valentine's Day, as if it's a marketing campaign for the KissingGates.com dating website that is mentioned twice in the video.
The husband claims that he was checking his email and found that his wife, Becky Jones, age 37, from Lincolnshire, left her dating profile open on their computer.
"I have a confession to make, my husband does not know I am on here!" the profile allegedly belonging to his wife reads. "I've been married for 5 years, but he is a complete idiot and completely crazy. I'm in need of some attention from someone normal!"
He next holds up the car key to what he claims is her beloved red sports car -- what appears to be an older model Peugeot -- what one astute YouTube comment spots as a Peugeot 306 -- begging the question, "Where is his 'Becky Jones' wife when all this melee is going on, and why didn't she take her car?"
Okay, let's assume she's off riding horses (or a guy she met on the dating website) -- why on Earth would she be so careless as to leave a dating profile that reads, "I love 2 things in my life my horses and my convertible Peugeot!" and "Looking for likeminded man, discretion needed and expected. Thanks…" open on a shared computer?
Anyhoo, the profile clearly states she is married and into "gardening, the outdoors, DIY/crafts, restaurants, pubs/clubs, cooking, [and] keep[ing] fit," so Kissing Gates must want folks to know they are the same type of dreaded website that has popped up in recent years that condone adultery -- if this is indeed the sham marketing hoax some of us peg it to be.
"Happy Valentine's Day!" he says in the video as he dumps the horse poop onto the open car.
It's not even that original. It immediately reminded me of the scene in that lovely movie "Mystic Pizza" wherein Julia Roberts dumps fish in her boyfriend's Porsche after she assumes he is cheating on her.
"Oh dear. Happy Valentine's Day. That should show her how crazy I am. Oh dear. Her pride and joy," the husband says with the cute British accent in the video.
"What do you think of that?" the potentially cuckolded husband asks a white horse in the video. "Not very cool is it? Using KissingGates.com…:
A search for "Becky Jones" on the website via Google doesn't turn up her profile, nor any of the words contained within her description on the dating website. Of course, not that I'm a aficionado of dating websites, but this is perhaps not uncommon.
The profile may never have been crawled by Google's index, or have been deleted and fallen out of the index by now, although that's awfully quick.
"Shame this is just a marketing video," writes the one commentator on YouTube, noting that the guy doesn't swear and the fact mentions the website more times than most people would.
What do you think? Fake or true?
