Heres what comes up on that link now
ZACH BRAFF IS NOT DEAD (duh)


Now before you all come after me with your torches and pitchforks, let me tell you a little story, about how this page came to be.

Wayyy back in 2007, I copied CNN's webpage and changed some text and some pictures to reflect an apparent Zach Braff suicide. This wasn't a publicity stunt, it wasn't a plea for hits, or to promote anything else. It was just to fool some of my friends. We're really big Scrubs fans and really big Zach Braff fans. I made this page to fool them, called them to my computer, and showed them to get their reaction. I obviously told them it was a joke afterwards, but I neglected to take the page down.

Apparently, something clicked with someone on the internet today. I saw my bandwidth for chrisbox.com ran out earlier, so I increased it and looked at my traffic. I saw all the hits to braff.html, and started researching. This was the second largest trending topic on Twitter along with tons of links on Facebook. I had people like Perez Hilton and even an ABC spokesperson commenting on this. The final straw to the whole thing was when Zach Braff himself made a comment about the whole situation (calling me a douchebag in this video).

So let's just clear some stuff up. I did not make this page to intentionally fool everyone on the internet. I didn't expect it to even be made public. Ever. I'm sorry if I scared everyone out there.

Zach, sorry if you got offended by me posting a fake suicide about you on the internet. Your 32,000 square foot house would be pretty empty without you. Thanks for (apparently) taking it lightly, since I haven't gotten a letter about a lawsuit yet. Just so you know, I'm a huge fan; that's the only reason I made this page, believe it or not. Also, sorry for upsetting your mother :(

If you need to get in touch with me, you can get to me via Facebook or Twitter.

LMAO if hes does get sued

Glad the idiot has taken it down, and can consider himself lucky he wasn't sued. See sometimes practical jokes get out of hand
