They made everyone believe they where going to give away a kidney on TV. They got worldwide attention. Journalists from all over the planet travelled to The Netherlands because this was a "big issue". CNN, BBC, ZDF, even All-Jazeera. But it was just a media stunt to to bring up the donor shortage on the political agenda.(especially in Holland, where donor shortage is higher then ever)

When they reveiled it was a hoax, I was ROFL-ing for 5 minutes.
