They See Me Trollin'

One 39-year-old creep may finally achieve his dream of sniffing Taylor Swift’s hair–at least if 4chan has anything to do with it.

A contest organized by Boston radio station KISS 108FM is offering to send one lucky winner to a Taylor Swift show on July 27 and get their picture taken with her. When you register for the contest, you generate a unique link; in order to win, you have to get as many people to click on that link as possible once a day until the end of the contest.

One 4chan poster decided that his “fat old creep” friend Charles Z. should get a chance to finally meet Ms. Swift and smell her hair, so he posted a plea to /b/ for votes. Because this is 4chan, one user naturally wrote a script to automate the voting process, according to The Daily Dot. The move skyrocketed Mr. Z to the top of the leaderboard, where he nows sits at the number-one position.

4chan, of course, is no stranger to Taylor Swift trolling. Last year, the community rigged a contest so that Ms. Swift would be forced to perform at Horace Mann School for the Deaf; she politely declined and instead donated $50,000.

Of course, we’ll see if Mr. Z actually pulls off his win; he could easily be disqualified for “receiving multiple and/or illegal votes.”
