Sadly, being in on the joke instantly makes it much less funny. I feel cheated, just like that other time the woman who burned her hand on a curling iron while singing Kreayshawn turned out to be an actress, or the other time the celebrities read the mean tweets that were mostly made up by comedians.
Kimmel pretended to interview the booty-shaking burn victim whose twerk fail video was one of the most popular of the week on his show last night, eventually revealing a director’s cut that featured him putting out the fire (in a matching pink shirt) with an extinguisher.
SUPPLIES! Wanting to make viral videos is fine, but the rest of the world and I watch them to laugh at real, unscripted stupidity.
Enjoy the non-fake stylings of Vodka Samm while you’re mourning.
