Everything About the Shell Video Is Fake, Apparently

First there was the fake video.

Then there was the fake press release saying Shell was going to sue over the video. We wrote about it, having received releases from Shell before, and this one was a good-looking fake, we'll give them that.

Ad Age reports the press release is not from Shell.

And with that, we are officially out of this tedious brouhaha.
