I’m sure you’re sick of reading about April Fools’ Day jokes, but this is one prank with a serious message. Russian Torrent site Vertor, tired of anti-piracy groups trying to shut them down, sent a most unusual package to six of its biggest opponents, including the MPAA. What was inside? Condoms!
They were Russian Vizit Overture flavored condoms (in mint, banana and strawberry!) with an attached note saying, “We wish your parents had used it.” On Vertor’s blog, they explain that this is part April-Fool, part real message. The message is “stop harassing our users, and basically cease to exist.” I don’t think it will accomplish anything, other than letting the MPAA, RIAA, IFPI, BREIN, BPI and BSA know that they don’t have a lot of friends in the torrent community. Not exactly news, but pretty funny.
Vertor has posted the tracking numbers of the condom shipments online, as well, so curious fans can see when they’re delivered.
