Taking his cue from the kids who convinced their parents to give them a puppy after getting 1 million likes on Facebook, Petter Kverneng of Norway got his high school crush Catherine to agree to sleep with him if he secured as many Facebook likes himself.
"It was meant as a joke for our group of friends," Kverneng, 20, told the local press.
Joke or not, the "status upgrade" soon hit 4chan's /b/ imageboard, where users naturally felt compelled to help Kverneng out.
Within a matter of hours, the solicitation gained over 900,000 likes, and is presently steamrolling ahead to the 1 million mark.
Kverneng, who has been friendzoned by Catherine for years, told Norway's Nettavisen that the two plan to "keep what we promised."
His only concern now, he said, is that her father might find out.
