Wow oh wow, oh wow....He's dead again. Adam Sandler that is. Murdered by the same Twitter hoax claiming he died in a Switzerland snowboard accident for the third time this year. It's been less than a month since the last time this hoax made its horrible rounds, but I guess seeing the long time comedian on the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert wasn't good enough--despite his riveting Leonard Cohen "Hallelujah" parody performance. Folks just had to get feisty and kill the comedian again. Though I find it so amazing that this Twitter and Facebook Death Hoax, concerning Adam Sander's supposed death in a Switzerland snowboarding accident could once again be revived from the dead, I am not at all surprised. After all, it just took Jim Carrey last week.
The Global Associated Press is the site responsible as always for the hoaxing and has used the same pitiful snowboard accident so many times, I would think it would have died by now, but alas it's rearing its ugly head again--and people are still falling for it! Just to set the record straight, I've pulled out my original story on the death hoax for your reading pleasure. Enjoy it... the first time around it made it's way to Fark.com as one of the funniest smartest pieces submitted that day!
Adam Sandler Dead In Snowboard Accident: Switzerland Hoax Takes Third Victim This Week
Okay people, let's just get one thing clear right now: Adam Sandler is ALIVE which more than I can say for my humor, or my hoax-ridden fingertips. It seems as soon as I finish covering one, another one pops up - kind of like those little gopher games in Chuck E Cheese.... But anyway, I digress.
So, you've heard it before, twice now. Word for word. Just take out Charlie Sheen and Channing Tatum's name, insert Adam Sandler's, and what you have is the third Switzerland Snowboard hoax to take social media by storm this week.
So who's starting these incredibly taxing and terrifying tricks? None other than Global Associated News, a jokester website well known for its hoax starters, and the same folks responsible for the others 2 snowy slaughterings.
Now, not that I'm really in love with these hoaxes as it is, but you would think, at the very least, they could give these guys a unique death scenario. I guess though, if you get your kicks off of terrifying the ignorant, originality is probably not high on your priority list.
If you didn't hear it the first two times, here is the crock of crap Global Associated News has been feeding thousands of fans, causing them to believe 3 much-loved actors have fallen, who are in fact alive and kicking, and most of them on sets of upcoming movies.
"Witnesses indicate that Adam Sandler lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed," the report reads. "Adam Sandler was air lifted by ski patrol teams to a local hospital, however, it is believed that the actor died instantly from the impact of the crash. The actor was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident and drugs and alcohol do not appear to have played any part in his death."
So there you have it. Died in a crash and no alcohol to be found. Boy could I use a drink...
I don't exactly understand how these things get so far out of control. I mean really folks, a simple Google and you've got the knowledge! We don't have to "tweet" everything we believe...or create a Facebook page in honor of our ignorance! This, however, is exactly what keeps happening time and again. Adam Sandler's death is no exception. Right now on Facebook, 56,000 people in counting have lit the proverbial "like" candle in honor of a star whose time has not in fact come.
I'm sorry if this post doesn't hold all the jaunty enthusiasm mine typically do. I think Twitter and its hoaxes have killed it.
As to the actor himself, this video shows about what I imagine Sandler might feel about being killed off, for the second time, in this same mundane fashion.
