We all suspected this was too good (bad?) to be true, right?

In a lengthy post on LinkedIn, a man by the name of Dil-Domine Jacobe Leonares is claiming that his company, Breakr, orchestrated the entire "Alex from Target" meme which spread like a virus across the Internet earlier this week.

The LA-based startup wants to "connect fans to their fandom." And Leonares describes the purpose of this stunt as such:

We wanted to see how powerful the fangirl demographic was by taking a unknown good-looking kid and Target employee from Texas to overnight viral internet sensation.



And after both the original Tweeter and Alex denied knowing Leonares or his company, he backtracked with an update on his post and by telling Buzzfeed that he merely "drummed up support" after the photo was posted.

Update: Abbie (@auscalum) and Alex Lee (@acl163) were never employed by Breakr. A side from Abbie being a follower and tweeting the photo, we jumped on it with the hashtag #AlexFromTarget

So to sum it all up… it's still a huge, mind-boggling mess. And Ellen doesn't seem to care.

Last month, Reddit users were able to raise enough of the digital currency (about $55,000 worth) to sponsor Josh Wise's No. 98 Phil Parsons Racing Ford for this weekend's Aaron's 499 Sprint Cup race at Talladega Superspeedway.

Reddit user C0LDBLUERIBB0N posted this image Monday afternoon, and the internet was off and running.

Look out! Here comes another meme, and this one's a doozy! Beerdrummer posted a picture of his wife as a child on Reddit and it went a little out of control. Nothing like an included caption like, "My wife looked like a 60-year-old woman as a child," to be the catalyst of something amazing (though looking at the photo, I'm not sure the obvious could have been stated any more clearly).

What an amazing story of one's rise to fame...it's too bad she'll only ever know about it if she finally convinces her son to come over and get her Prodigy account to work.
