It's the only logical conclusion to the Great Russian Kerfluffle of 2010: Video of fake Russians extraordinaire Bradley Springer and Jonathan Taylor bamboozling Linda Robertson of the Miami Herald. (Scored to amazing Russian pop music, natch).
The Herald, meanwhile, still has yet to post anything other than the world's most slipshod correction, which posits that, much like an X-File, the truth in this case will simply never be known.
Just before we posted this video, a Herald staffer finally contacted us looking for help in getting in touch with Bradley and Jonathan. But we thought the truth was unknowable!
