Icon19 Oyster man's Google-gram was a hoax

National Nine News broadcast a report about a man who came up with an idea to lace Sydney Rock Oysters with Viagra and sell them as souped up aphrodisiacs.

George Noble-May, the Central Coast resident behind the project, told viewers that the story was "exploding" around the world, so much so that even Google had emailed congratulating him for having one of the internet's hottest stories.

Trouble is, the email is a hoax. Google knows that and has since informed him.
