I am sorry if you beleived it. It was a really bad attempt.  You all are smart people. I never planned on it getting this big. But it did.  (Come one, I know the Google logo. I am actually a graphic designer, I just wanted to see reactions if it was a crappy back.)

Oh, right, I also DO know CSS and HTML. Just clarifying that.  I never was going to let this go on longer than 12 hours.

Read the video descript for more info.

    Why do you feel the need to persistently reinforce your alleged “knowledge” of CSS/HTML?

    The lady doth protest too much…

    What a plonker.

    • chromeosleak says:

      Don’t know, lol. People just gave me a lot of crap when the blog was in normal WordPress default…

      But yeah, I am a graphic web designer so its like “I didn’t go through all that schooling to not brag. XD

  2. Mic says:

    Not bad.
    believable, good show on basically suckering the internet for a day.
    Hopefully we will see the real thing soon.

    • chromeosleak says:

      Exactly. I love Google so much…

      Giving all this teasing makes people want the real thing. It creates energy. I always wanted it to be a one day show so people will be like ZOMG GOOGLE.

      So there you have it, I did this to advertise Chrome OS

  3. no one special says:

    Nicely done.

  4. Mike says:

    I can’t believe you as being a professional graphic designer – not when you own such an ugly table. :)

        No, no … spend your time writing comments on blogs, instead! Much more productive …

  12. Le Concombre Masqué says:

    I am happy it is a fake, since the design actually sucks.

  13. Alex says:

    Umm…you didn’t fool everyone you thought you did. Just because a lot of people saw it doesn’t mean they believed it. I mean, you totally got the Google logo wrong, whether you did it on purpose or not.

    And don’t try to make this into some epic achievement. Your video is vastly inappropriate. You’re not a legend, you’re not getting any attention after today. This is it. This is your fifteen minutes of internet fame. Go back to being nobody, why don’t you?

    Love it!

    Keep running men !

  19. Wendy says:

    Judging from your poor grammar and spelling skills, I’d say you’re a programmer and not a graphic designer.

  20. mark says:

    You are a graphic designer, yet your YouTube video intro looks like shit.

    Final Countdown is way overdone these days (Thanks, Arrested Development).

    • chromeosleak says:

      Haha! Yeah, I really didn’t have time to do anything decent video wise right now. I just wanted to get the video out and end this.

      But I use Adobe Photoshop CS4 and I edit videos in Premiere/After Effects. I have Pinnacle Studio 12, but I don’t use it that much.

      SO I was adventerous and decided to use WIndows Crappy Maker

      • Epon says:

        I’m pretty sure everything you’ve said about “using gradients” to “experimenting with Windows Movie Maker” is just a shit attempt at covering your ass.

        Just admit that the hoax was shitty and not done on purpose to “trick people”. You still fooled a lot of people. Don’t play it off like you’re hova

  21. i guess with this pathetically cheap strategy you have made sure that people won’t believe you for anything in the future….. that’s really a bad news for you dear.

  22. bluefisch200 says:

    You get me respect…you get the hole web community to listen to you for a day. Great job, and also respect that you can say “yes i did it, it is a fake”

  23. Astonished says:

    And then earlier today, Google announced that Acer was one of the hardware vendors that they are working with for Google Chrome OS. Kind of gave your story a bit of creditability.

    Ouch ! First a basic (to say the least) fake, then a really poor video, now, you pretend you’re using photoshop,premiere and after effects for your youtube videos ?
