Fake TF2 Spy Image Fools Valve

BOOM widget 118635 Team Fortress 2 followers may remember a "leaked" image (left) that recently convinced many fans that the Spy update was on its way from developer Valve. The screen was soon revealed to be a fake, the words "Hoax by Kaanin" found in small print at the bottom.

Now a new post on the official TF2 blog reveals that even some Valve employees were deceived by the image.

"His mocked-up image was convincing enough that even some of us at Valve were momentarily fooled," said Valve's Eric Smith. "Well played, Kaanin."
