A well-chosen prank and a sense of 4/20 occasion created the perfect conditions for a random petrol station near Dayton, Ohio becoming the focus of the world’s attention last night. Dayton is Ohio’s sixth largest city, and its Sunoco is not an especially renowned branch, but that didn’t matter to the hundred Limp Bizkit fans who turned up, for lols or otherwise, at the insistence of this Facebook event.

After Brian Baker’s event went viral, social media began to fill up with impossible things: merch related to this specific, hypothetical 4/20 event; bogus tickets; stock crowd scenes photoshopped into the appropriate branch of Sunoco.

Zac impressed early with his t-shirt, which advertised a gig that hadn’t even happened yet.

Soon reports from the ground came in of the petrol station staff having a hard time and telling people to go away.

People still went in droves, though.

Then there were the pretty genuine-seeming tickets

And the people who just turned up to see what all the fuss was about

And the fake Access All Areas passes, for an open-area gas station in the middle of nowhere

Eventually they found a way to entertain themselves, in the most appropriate fashion possible:

And ultimately, the band was impressed by this flagrant display of mass trolling. Bravo, Brian.
