It's still there, actually, you can still read it. It's about a photofit of some Andrew Lloyd Webber-looking motherfucker who is widely dreamt about by various unconnected people across the world, and an interview with the psychologist who first put his face to paper.

This sort of thing is encouragingly rare: we run a story, it turns out to be something that was denounced in and could be easily verified as fake with a single google, a few people call us dickheads and the editorial team drown in their own tears. Sometimes we mess up. The truth behind "This Man" is that the original photofit — and the online database of supposed dreams people have had about him, thisman.

He's also the person we interviewed for a story about his own hoax. Essentially, yes: what has happened here is we have walked up to the hoaxer, said, "Hiya, could you very immediately hoax us," and then they rubbed their little hoax-y hands with glee and said: yes.
