While we have already learned that the "Drunk Girl in Public" video was a fake (is anything even real anymore?), now the actress hired to play said drunk girl is also speaking out.

Jennifer Box has released a video apologizing for the stunt Monday, which she says was originally pitched to her as a "lighthearted prank show."

She said she never would have participated if she had known the damaging outcome of the video. But isn't forever being remembered as "that drunk girl in public on Hollywood Boulevard" a good enough reason to turn it down?

The men in the video recently spoke up about the prank to Inside Edition and the mastermind behind the entire debacle, Stephen Zhang, has made the original video private, which had racked up millions of views since it aired.

The mysterious Moon Melon, with it's deep, vivid blue color, is said to come from Japan with a unique ability to change the taste of other foods with just a few bites. But like many things found on the internet that seem too weird to be true, the Moon Melon is just that. The exotic fruit has made quite a recent stir, thought the circulating image was reported to be a couple of digitally altered slices of plain ol' watermelon by The Daily Dot in July of 2012.

According to the International Business Times, many believe it's been circulating again because the widely followed Twitter account, Weird Hacks & Facts, posted a recent photo of the fantasy fruit. The post reads the following:

"This fruit grows in some parts of Japan, and is known for its vibrant blue color. What you probably don't know about this fruit is that it can switch flavors after you eat it. Everything sour will taste sweet, everything salty will taste bitter, and it gives water a strong orange-like taste."
