Twitter Trolls Hijack Lindsay Lohan's Energy Drink Party

An energy drink company hyped up its celebrity attended launch party by promoting a hashtag for the event. A handful of hooligans swarmed the hashtag, livetweeting a fake version of the worst (and funniest) party ever.

A beverage company's plans to utilize Twitter to promote an event to celebrate the launch of their new energy drink went awry when a group of trolls flooded the dedicated hashtag for the party with a surreal alternate version of events.

Mr. Pink Ginseng Drink seemed to be using what looked very suspiciously like celebrity paid tweets. Audrina Patridge and Lindsay Lohan started tweeting this week about the product and their excitement to attend the party, using the hashtag #MrPinkGinsengDrink.

My new addiction is Mr Pink Ginseng Drink - healthy for you...happy for life!! @drinkmrpink see you on the 11th at the Blvd

The Mr. Pink Ginseng Drink social media campaign appeared to be relying heavily on celebrity sponsored tweets, and hoping that their fans would just hop onboard and watch the designated hashtag for the event unfold.

This proved irresistable to a group of trolls, led by comedian Jake Fogelnest, Jon Hendren, and David Thorpe (the guy responsible for hijacking a Wal-Mart Facebook contest to send Pitbull to Alaska) to start fake live-tweeting the event.

The following is a description of the worst and most absurd party in the history of forever:
