No way, that is the ultimate revenge upon the people that don't appreciate it. Don't take your internets too seriously or it will show you why you shouldn't, LOL!

Epic? Hardly. This was a publicity stunt, plain and simple. The fact he got so many links to it and page views only helps his bottom line as well.

I guess that depends on your definition of epic.
As it wasn't pre-meditated it was less a publicity stunt than an April Fools joke. And besides, stunt or joke, they are not mutually exclusive. It will be remembered and it caused quite a stir, an epic stir if you will.
"Epic: •very imposing or impressive; surpassing the ordinary (especially in size or scale)"
