This Dell Fart Art Video Must Be A Hoax

By Mat Honan on at

You've seen a thousand videos vaguely similar to this one—at least in the way it starts—but just be patient. Give it two minutes. There's an unexpected payoff. A money shot, if you will.

This is pretty clearly a hoax. I mean, did you see how bad that logo looked? Or checked out photographer Clayton Sotos' website? Why would it and the "Visual Innovators" sites both have anonymous DreamHost registrations? And isn't this Tumblr a little too, um, on-the-nose?

We've got a query into Dell to find out, just in case. But I have to say, if Dell actually did make this video, I would be so impressed that I'd just about have to run out and buy a Dell, dude.
