As suddenly as the world gave us the first man to smoke semen from a vaporizer, it has cruelly taken him away. In a followup video, the man behind the cum-vaping stunt admits it was all a ruse, filmed for a documentary about fooling the online media.

Goodbye, vaporized jizz. You were a beautiful dream, but now we watch you float away into the night like so many billowing wisps of male ejaculate.

But that's the thing: It was the idea of a guy smoking his buddy's cum that brought in the clicks, not the reality. It wasn't so much that people believed what they were watching—on the contrary, many sites covering this were appropriately skeptical—it's that they wanted to see a dude vape someone else's jizz, regardless of whether he was pretending.

No amount of staring at that nauseating fluid—which he claims was really sardine juice and vegetable glycerine, because that's somehow less disgusting—would ever lead to the truth. The only people who know its actual cum content are the guys who made the video, and they're apparently liars.

There's a growing body of research out there about the online media's many failures of skepticism, but, sure, basing a documentary called "The Gullibility of the Internet" on a 50,000-view video of a guy pretending to smoke cum is one way you could go.

The "Florida State Seminoles" hoodie was a nice touch, though. You've gotta give him that.
