Brazil Is So Fake

Chicagoans For Rio 2016 is a phony site put up by Brazil to get the Olympic Selection Comity to Rio over Chicago.

It pretends to be of course residents of the city proclaiming their support for 2016 games to held there.

The site has nice video of people declaring their wish to give it to Rio. There is an animated squad car that give a run down of the recent crimes in the area where the Olympic village would be. And there's a slide show of the Athens games sites empty and abandoned.

At the bottom of the page there is a crawl which features quotes like: "nothing but love for chicago but there's no way we should be going for the olympics. no way." -- steviev, chicago; "ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!" -- anonymous, chicago.

For fun read check out the games bids forum. Warning, if you are the type that would fire somebody over all caps. Don't read too far down.
