I read that when they posted it on the BM facebook page. That was the silliest waste of time I ever read. Wasn't even funny.

Apparently the person who started this rumor doesn't know when Burning Man happens- look at the date on the "letter"- 2/26/95.

On the playa, in February? When has Burning Man ever taken place in February?? It's fucking cold out there now, and the playa's wet.

Viral conspiracy of the moment.

Yeah there are a lot of ways to debunk it. The first is that it is unlikely a film crew for a video would go all the way to BRD when there are salt flats that would provide the same appearance a couple hours outside of LA.

The second is the date which, as you noted, is feb, and that's an 05 not a 1995.

Gotta agree, I thought it was pretty hysterical. It's also so blatantly false that you'd have to have your brain turned off to buy it, so I'm loving the reactions on fb.

Oh, it is. Glenn Beck should write for the Onion (but he's not quite up to their journalistic standards)
