It was sent by Too White Crew lead singer John Cordogiannes. He didn't think the offer for a bottle of bum wine to anyone who could get "Scumbag Steve" on stage at an upcoming show would actually go anywhere.

Steve -- whose real name is Blake Boston -- probably had enough Internet infamy to deal with. The image of him propped up against the white door with a fur coat and checkered Red Sox hat has been shared countless times online, all captioned with stereotypical scummy behavior like complaining about the couches he crashes on and keeping lighters he borrows. 

But the same day, beautiful Internet magic happened.
