Okay, so tonight was the final of Shortland Street right?  Usual kind of thing - big cliff hanger.  Who lives? Who dies? yada yada...

Well after the show there was a TVNZ advertisement where fans can go to a website to find out clues as to who died.

www.shortlandstreetclues.co.nz

So I went to have a look... and the website they advertise doesn't exist.  Site not found.

I'm watching on Tivo so I went back to check the address.  Yep, I had it right.  But the address they are advertising hasn't even been registered.

Until now.

Any ideas what I should do with it?

That is brilliant.

You def need to think up something better than a rick roll.

Are you sure that's the site they advertised?

You need to make it more PR disasterish so they need to buy it from you in a hurry:)

Ideas for trolling:
Make people answer lots of pointless questions for a rickroll.
Have a pointless countdown timer.
Have a signup form that always fails.

Really either way you look at it, by the time you manage to think up and create a good enough troll, TVNZ would have realised their blunder and advertised a new url.
Or they could not and you could have the time of your life trolling TVNZ.

freitasm: Do you have Google Analytics or something to measure the number of visitors and where they are coming from?




Nah...  I'm not too clued up on that.
I'm sure TVNZ will pull/edit the advert as soon as they realise their mistake. 

Though surely it would be cheaper for them to just buy the domain off me...

Don't let it go for cheap, you may have a golden ticket there.
