Faking it

Is this a legitimate news story about how to deal with the current drought, or is it a cleverly packaged advertisement?

You decide.

[Glemm] French is a green thumb and would normally have the lawn to talk about, but when his wife of 62 years had a stroke and was diagnosed with cancer, he had to be by her side.

So, French gave up all efforts to maintain a green lawn, which would have been extra difficult this year considering the dry, harsh conditions.

But, for Mrs. French's eightieth birthday, their lawn was green.

Mr. French contacted Texas Green Grass, Incorporated to dye their grass a rich verdant color that could fool Mother Nature. The turf paint is safe and EPA-approved, lasts about three months and costs about $200.
