It’s safe to say that between cellphones and the internet, apparently you really need to focus on who’s around and what you’re doing, because you never know when it might come back to get you.

Linebacker Brandon Spikes is dealing with just that right now, after a video has apparently surfaced of the former Florida linebacker who is said to be naked in a video of a recorded Chatroulette interaction.
According to WikiPedia Chatroulette is a website which pairs random strangers for webcam-based conversations. Visitors to the website randomly begin an online stranger chat (video and text) with another visitor. At any point, either user may leave the current chat by initiating another random connection. Spikes reportedly used the website, and a user reportedly offered it to DeadSpin for $1,500.
This link to the Huffington post has photos of the person pictured in the video (again – it’s said to be Spikes) and a normal photo of Spikes to compare it against.
Even if the video surfaces you won’t see it here, and to offer up a bit of advice I wouldn’t run out there and start looking for it. Sites who like to distribute viruses love opportunities like this to trick users into thinking they have these types of videos on their sites. So just when you think you’ve found it, you may find that you’ve arrived on a site that may cause your computer to start having issues.
So I wouldn’t recommend looking for it. And let’s be honest, if Spikes is indeed naked in it, do you really want to see it anyway?
