Lance Armstrong Creep Mashup Hits The Internet (VIDEO)

Subscribe To:

When a tragic case of deceit, drug misuse and lies sees a hero fall from grace so spectacularly, it makes global news, what's the best way to deal with it? Cut an interview together to the tune of a 90's hit song and put it on the Internet. That's how. 

Armstrong had been declared winner of the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times between 1999 and 2005, before being disqualified from each of those races and banned from cycling for life for doping offenses by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in 2012. A cancer survivor, he is the founder of the Lance Armstrong Foundation - later renamed Livestrong Foundation after the drug controversy - which provides support for cancer patients.

Bradley Cooper nominated for best actor at the Academy Award next month for his portrayal of a troubled soul in David O Russell's Silver Linings Playbook, expressed his interest in the role in an interview with the BBC. "I think he's fascinating," Cooper said. "What a fascinating character."

This, of course, fuelled speculation that he was to play Armstrong in a film. However, he put an end to those rumours, answering any questions on it with a stern, "no", adding, "Oh my god, that's so nuts!" to the very idea of it. (via New York Daily News).
