“The message [reg required] went on to explain that Lonelygirl15 was a project to harness the audience to develop and evolve a story and “usher in an era of interactive storytelling where the line between ‘fan’ and ‘star’ has been removed”.
While not everyone is convinced that the filmmakers’ confession is genuine (many believe it’s part of the developing mystery), it now seems certain that Lonelygirl15 is a fake – although who is behind the hoax and the purpose of it is still unclear.
A clue left in one of the videos suggests it may be another month before we find out.
In a video posted a week ago titled Bree The Cookie Monster, Bree and Daniel rate batches of cookies they said they baked.
Bree’s purple monkey puppet holds up score cards. The first one gets “10”, the second “12” and the third one “06”. Why “06” and not “6”?
Viewers point out that the sequence makes a date: 10/12/06 – or October 12, 2006, using the US method of writing dates. October 12 also happens to be the birth date of the late occultist Aleister Crowley, whose picture can be seen on a wall in Bree’s room.
News of the hoax, however, does appear to have dented Lonelygirl15’s popularity.”
