It turns out that 2016's best electric car-related Internet prank isn’t the Tesla Model 3 after all. (Don’t worry, you’ll be able to buy one someday. Really, you will.) It was this, the shockingly elaborate website for the Chevrolet Jolt, a car that is 100 percent not real.
Idiots everywhere were taken in over the weekend by the irresistible story of a Navy petty officer who was too drunk to turn off the anti-DUI system on his car, so he grabbed a raccoon from a nearby park and squeezed some of its tiny, feral breath into the breathalyzer. The car started, according to the incident…
Looks scary, that LiveLeak video you probably saw today of the drone striking the plane’s wing, doesn’t it? Stuff like that is every plane passenger’s worst nightmare. The good news is that it’s totally, verifiably, 100 percent fake.
There is an article circulating all over social media that says that the FBI is putting every motorcyclist on a classified gang list in the wake of the horrendous Waco biker gang shootout. Guess what? That is Grade A horse shit.
Sulinh Lafontaine managed to fool a number of people into believing she was not only a stunt driver for Dwayne Johnson/Jason Statham-punchathon Furious 7, but the only female stuntwoman on the movie. She wasn’t and we thoroughly debunked her claims in this article and now Lafontaine has admitted to fabricating the…
Facebook is a big and maddening place. Antiviral wants to make it better. To that end, we're putting together a comprehensive guide to the new, bad, weird, and bullshit "news sites" that are appearing on your feed. Here's part one: "Satire."
Someone just hacked into the New York Post and UPI Twitter feeds, claiming that China attacked the American Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George Washington. It isn't true (so far as we know), but by and large one of the better hacks we've seen.
The Internet is the greatest communication tool since the invention of screaming at people from a balcony. The downside is that it allows wrong information to spread unfettered, like a virus. Here's one example involving Wikipedia, the Chevrolet Corvette, and diesels.
It's that time of year again! Every six months or so, the media rave about the latest advancements in flying car technology. They insist your flying car is ALMOST HERE! No, no it's not.
There's a nasty "ad" going around the Internet today. It purports to show an old Malaysia Airlines ad, which eerily predicted the horrible events that led to the loss of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. It's horrible, it's wrong, and even worse, it's fake.
A Toyota Prius with a V8. The perfect sleeper, the cross between a hipster and a gearhead, is almost too good to be true.
Did Nikola Tesla actually work as a swimming instructor? What's the deal with that famous photo of Albert Einstein and his therapist? Did they actually make radiation-aged bourbon back in the 1960s? Nope!
First off, I want it to be known that I'm not much of a liar. But I do enjoy a good hoax every now and then, but now it's time to come clean: the video game Ulak-Tartysh, based on the Kyrgyzstani sport (sometimes called Buzkashi), that was made behind the Iron Curtain in 1983, is an incredibly detailed fake of my own…
One of the great accomplishments of Nazi Germany's war machine was a jetpack that propelled their soldiers into the sky. It was a fantastical device whose story has been told many times on the web and it would be even more impressive if it weren't the propaganda of a Holocaust denier disguised as history.
While Bigfoot has been spotted for decades in the woods around the United States, almost every single video has been proven to be a hoax.
When Shell announced that they would be exploring opportunities to drill for oil off of Alaska's coast, a grassroots movement of bad publicity was started. First there was the mini oil rig explosion in early June and then there was arcticready.com, a purported Shell social media contest gone horribly wrong.
Richard Heene gained infamy as the father who faked the story of his son being lifted away by a runaway balloon as a TV show pitch. Now Heene wants to lift you and your stuff with his $17,000 robot.
There have been some images circulating on the seedier, more Russian side of the Internet showing a hapless Mercedes driver with his forearm horribly branded by a Mercedes logo from an airbag deployment. Trouble is it's totally bullshit.
