Looks like the incident was done by a Danish (?) artist. By the looks of it, he got so much email that he had to admit it was art, not reality to get people to send him less (though the distinction between those two is often over-emphasized, IMO). In any case, it's good to see that interesting art is happening on the net, especially stuff that plays to the urban legend and conspiracy theory genres.
