    I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.

    that was the craziest thing i ever read

    and that song is absolute donkey shit

    what the hell is going on?

    edit: i found some additional info on a way older website that says al is on the grammy nominating committee. just saying.

    double edit: i'm clearly missing something as this doesn't seem to be real and now I'm just well confused.

    great find ed. this is blowing up on twitter.

    Apparently this is real. If you check the grammy website his name is there under best dance recording. scroll down to #9. http://www.grammy.com/nominees

    According to house.net he somehow gamed the system.

    Al Walser's Facebook fan page (with an impressive 1400 likes) indicates that he is a "Grammy Voting and Nominating member." However, after reviewing the rosters for the 12 regional Grammy Academy chapters, we were unable to locate anyone named any variation of "Al Walser."

    A record label executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity, believes that Al Walser blatantly manipulated the nomination process to get his name included on the final list of nominess.

    "I don't know how he did it, [The Grammy Academy Administrators] are very strict usually. They make you leave the room if your stuff is being voted on, things like that. It's obvious that there is no way that this guy could have legitimately gotten himself included, but it's amazing that he pulled this off. Amazing and sad."

    them calling 1400 likes impressed makes me call this story into question but we'll see as it develops.

    as i'm typing this post, tweets about this story keep coming in. is this the kind of quality investigative journalism to put spin magazine back on the map? lol


    Edit: liking some of the facebook comments:

    "Trolling the Grammys? Well played Al Walser..... Well Played"

    "well only 14 minutes left of fame. GG"

    calling it impressive was definitely sarcasm

    Seems like an intentional mockery of the system/grammys or some kind of borat-style prank.. I cant believe the guy would think he could fool anybody into liking that song & video via his grammy award..

    walser is getting plenty of attention. so is house.net and spin magazine. a win win for all involved i'd say.
