“Make an account with a soccer mom selfie avatar, make your username something like ‘ilovemykids123’ and write a bio about how you have three kids and a husband.”
Today, a bunch of radio stations announced they would be premiering new Lady Gaga music this Friday. Lady Gaga fans were just a little bit excited.
Gaga has been teasing an album for some time, and her devoted fans were keen to make sure radio stations across the globe understood early on that this was a song they needed to BLAST, so they devised a little plan.
The post reads:
“You better be ready to request the song via Twitter.”
“If you have a stan twitter don't request using it. Radio hosts hate homosexuals and stan twitters, it's a fact. Make an account with a soccer mom selfie avatar, make your username something like 'ilovemykids123' and write a bio about how you have three kids and a husband.”
“Then write a tweet like '@RadioStation ahah my kids luv this new GaGa song!!! driving me mad on my way to work!! play it please'.”
“Trick the radio hosts into thinking the GP [general population]loves it.”
“If you have qualms about using someone's picture and 'impersonating' them on twitter, use a stock photo of a middle-aged woman/man. This way it's completely legal and you can't get in trouble for it but you will be helping radio DJ's all over the world think that the GP is actually living for the song, therefore playing it more often.”
This particular call to arms was put on the huge Gaga-based blog, GagaDaily.com, but the same message was copy and pasted onto other celeb and music forums.
Gaga stans seem to believe that radio station workers do not care for them or their requests when it comes to hearing music, and believe that by posing as mothers online their requests will be taken more seriously.
And then this happened:
