    The ballsiest news of the day today arrives on behalf of a stunt pulled by a Peking Duk superfan named David Spargo. The enterprising young fellow managed to gain easy access to the band's green room in Melbourne, Australia after editing the group's Wikipedia page to make it appear he was a family member of the dance duo.

    When questioned for his credentials, he showed security his ID and the Wiki page, and was immediately admitted backstage. Spargo then introduced himself to the band, who were amused by the maneuver and "ended up having a bunch of beers with him," says the band's Adam Hyde.

    "It was probably the most genius, mastermind move that I've ever witnessed," Hyde continued. "He was an absolute legend. He wasn't a creep or anything. He was like the most normal dude we've ever met. That's what makes it more hilarious."

    Later, the band uploaded a screenshot from the page—with the hastily-added "Family David Spargo" under a sentence noting the group's 2014 ARIA Music Awards win for the song "High"—to Twitter along with a still from Anchorman that said: "Actually, I'm not even mad. That's amazing."

    Hyde also pointed out the lesson in all of this: you can "never trust Wikipedia".
