the grinch leak was the result of someone with too much time, and the google leak was the result of someone with too much money

now what happens if we get someone with too much time and money?
AND talent?

An HD render, gameplay footage for a modded character, new original art, advertisements, the works...

All under a layer of bluriness and low resolution and boom.

Yeah it's the craziest person in the world going out of their way to make incredibly boring cardboard cut-out models using promotional material from the upcoming Grinch movie because he's thinking 47 steps ahead and knows that both Bandai-Namco and Universal studios contract the same obscure French marketing company. To this end, he then got himself an office, printed out the name of an employee of said company, and haphazardly half blurred out the name because, once again, he's some kind of super genius beyond the mental capacities of mortal man and he knew that the internet's crack team of cybersleuths would find his red-herring name in seconds.

This absolute Einstein of social engineering also happens to moonlight as an expert artist and after presumably spending hours carefully cutting and pasting characters from the Smash poster, he then went out of his way to produce 7 more drawings of his own with obscure elements like vines for Isaac that hardly anyone would be able to make out, and then, for the fun of it, he saw to making a completely unique drawing of the blank version of Battlefield just because he could. He made sure that this fake roster of his perfectly mirrored one posted on 4chan last month by someone whose first language clearly isn't English because he knew that people would immediately make the connection to the French marketing company that he is pretending produced this image. The fact that 5 new characters lines up with the 5 missing stages from Corocoro was all part of his master plan. He also made sure this coincided with Nintendo renewing relevant trademarks.

The lengths you have to go to believe that this is all an incredibly elaborate leak would make this man one of the most intelligent people to ever walk the Earth. Apparently he knew where people would look at every turn, making him at the minimum more competent than the entire government of Saudi Arabia when it comes to fakery.

I suggest you think about which outcome is the most likely here
Oh, hey. I found it. It was at 128 likes.

*checking the Three Houses rumor threads*
"thanibomb has made over 400 comments and replies just over the past day. Would a troll go to that much effort?"
*looks at Smash's speculation scene*
Honestly that makes me more suspicious.

People don't typically leak THAT much.

to be fair a good half of it is 'i can't comment on that yet' or 'wait and see ; )', but i still don't think just being a well-known user is enough grounds to trust everything/anything they say

like ****, i might be 'well known' on this thread, but that doesn't mean you should believe a word i say if i suddenly kicked down the door and started screaming that i'd seen the remaining 7 DLC smash characters and that they're erdrick, sol badguy, phoenix wright, artorias, octoling, proto man, and kasumi

Was he the originator of the pasta? wow, I'm kinda surprised by the amount of people that liked it. Kinda surprising twist now in that how it is mocked upon.
It had a lot going for it.

It would have been unanimously thought to have been real if it wasn't for insiders knowing it was fake.

And whenever they tried to tell the truth they got mocked...

And they got mocked a LOT.

gamexplain: doesn't comment on grinch leak because they've heard from sources that incineroar is in
also gamexplain: continues to make money off direct prediction/speculation videos even though they already know the final roster

Anyone else remember the Gillybal "leak" that was popular for like, a day?

And how some people were still humoring it even after it was pointed out that "Gillybal" sounds an awful lot like "gullible"?

Ah, memories.

I remember the "gullible" part, but I don't remember what the whole thing was about :yoshi:

I think it was going into detail about a Nintendo direct? I don't actually remember it that well either.

Anyway a lot of people were acting like it was more credible just because it was posted here on Smashboards for some reason. It died pretty quickly though (and rightfully so), so that was rare case of a hoax that amused more then irritated me.

If that hoax meant anything to me though its that the pre-launch speculation scene will eat up any potential "news" that comes there way like a pack of starving hyenas.
