image for Not very famous actor dies in not very interesting way
Isn't that, er, whatshisname? Wasn't he in, erm, whatsitcalled? He's dead? Oh, oh well. NEXT.

The internet was awash today with the news of the death of an actor who nobody particularly cared about when he was alive.

The star of nothing of any note was found dead in his apartment early this morning. He is thought to have died in not suspicious circumstances and in a manner that wasn't out of the ordinary in anyway.

Messages of condolence have been posted on internet forums across the world from people who weren't quite sure who he was and from people who thought he was someone else.

A spokesperson for celebrity gossip website Poptwats said, 'It's a sad day when someone famous passes away. And it's almost as sad when someone who isn't all that famous passes away too. But at least we'll get a few more hits today from people who are surfing the web pretending to know who he is and we can write whatever crap we want about him because no one really knows any better.'

A tribute to his work might be shown on some obscure cable channel at some point. If anyone still remembers who he is by the end of the week.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
