Jeff Goldblum Is Alive


Throughout the Michael Jackson news yesterday afternoon, people kept e-mailing me asking about Jeff Goldblum and reports that he had died in New Zealand after a 60 foot fall. The first time I saw any mention of it was from a blogger who claimed he had an exclusive about Jeff Goldblum's death. He then mass e-mailed it to his entire contact list and from there it started taking off. After it was discovered that Jeff Goldblum was alive, the blogger e-mailed everyone to say Jeff was alive and the blogger also did something kind of sneaky when he adjusted the first e-mail he had sent. Hard to understand? Let me show you.

The subject line of the e-mail from zacktaylor.ca said, "EXCLUSIVE: Jeff Goldblum DIES IN NEW ZEALAND"

He then had a photo which had the distinctive Just Jared yellow around and it the following message:

According to unconfirmed sources, while filming in New Zealand, actor, Jeff Goldblum fell more than 60 feet to his death.
Stay tuned for details...

So, several sites bit and printed the story, not even bother checking if Jeff, was, in fact in New Zealand which he wasn't.

Now here is the follow-up e-mail when the world realized Jeff was alive. Notice the slight change to his original e-mail as well.

According to unconfirmed reports, while filming in New Zealand, actor, Jeff Goldblum fell more than 60 feet to his death.

Stay tuned for details... (I hope this isn't true)!!
UPDATE: ZackTaylor.ca sources tell us that this story is 100% NOT TRUE and was started as a joke by the on-set people in New Zealand after Jeff filmed one of his scenes earlier today!!

Notice how he changed it so he didn't seem so callous? Also, if you will notice his sources are still wrong because, again, Jeff was not in New Zealand. Wait though. This gets better. Late last night, this blogger sent out the following e-mail through the guise of his PR company.

For Immediate Release:

I love the part about gone are the days of reporting false stories or not being sensitive. Well, he certainly got some attention and some publicity from this hoax. The good news in all this is I found some new FFF pictures of Jeff so that's a positive.

Katie said...

AnonMom said...

WTF?

If it isn't Jonathan Jaxson, you can bet he's creaming himself over not doing something like this himself. But that would mean he would have to stop sending out sex tape videos.

I smell a new reality show: "I'm a douchebag blogger, get me out of here!" featuring Jonathan Jaxson, Perez Hilton, Zack Taylor, and Ian Halperin.

Mr. Nice, no Bullshit starts off by scmming people with falsehoods and...BULLSHIT? way to maintain your integrity.

FFF of Jeff Goldblum? Hmm, I don't know whether I'm intrigued, disgusted, or a weird mix of both. HOW SHOULD I BE FEELING RIGHT NOW, PEOPLE? Do I want to see it? So many conflicting emotions!

I have had a crush on Jeff Goldblum since the 80's. That is all I have to say on this matter!

Apparently this story is an online template and you can type in anyone's name and send the story out. Hence, all the stars who've (not) died the past few years.
Crying wolf. They better be careful that when someone does fall from those cliffs, no one will believe it.

I've only heard of this guy because he published some naked/compromising pictures of a hockey player.

His site is very boring.

Is this the same Zack Taylor who used to play/plays professional poker?
