As of now, everyone and his girlfriend (or lack thereof) has heard of the Manti Te'o hoax scandal. But as with every news story the actual facts are not nearly as important as how the amazing Taiwanese animators at NMA will handle is. And bravo to them once again for doing such a stellar job.
Who cares if your dead girlfriend is fake, Manti, you've been animated by NMA! You have achieved the highest status a human being can. Congratulations!
