Japanese Pop Star Revealed To Be Fake

A Japanese pop group has fooled their fans by creating a fake member. No I don’t mean this was just another airhead pop star with no personality or talent. This was an actual non-existent computer generated person made from the faces of her band mates. The group even offers an app on its website that allows you do make a similar person mash up.
This week, Eguchi Aimi, the newest member of the all-girl Japanese pop group AKB48, was revealed to be a fake human. She was perfectly cute, but Eguchi was nothing more than a computer composite of her six band mates; she existed only in a virtual world. The bizarre, and clever, publicity stunt was unveiled in the above video, which shows exactly how the virtual beauty was created.

I just watched the Hatsune Miku video linked above. Someone please tell me all those people rocking out in the crowd were paid to be there. Because if they weren't--if they paid their own hard-earned yen to go to that show--then I feel kind of dead inside.
