Jimmy Kimmel Tricks Coachella Attendees into Raving About Bands That Don't Exist: VIDEO


"Did you know that Coachella is actually the American Indian word for dumb white guy?"

Heard of Doctor Slo-Mo and the GI Clinic, Shorty Jizzle and the Plumber Cracks, The Obesity Epidemic, Get the F**k Out of My Pool, or The Chelsea Clintons?

These Coachella attendees have, and they're very big fans.

  1. This is just compounding my opinion of the crowd there.

  2. Yeah, well *I* was a fan of Shorty Jizzle before anyone ever heard of him and he sold out and went mainstream! ;-)

  3. The band names were funny, but watching this makes me sad. People lie so easily and for such petty reasons. None of them took even a split second to think about their responses.

  4. Just goes to show that some hipsters aren't there for the bands...they're just there for the free drugs, the drunk chicks flashing their t*ts and to be seen.

    I only listen to bands that haven't even been formed yet.

  5. They were all tripping.

  6. @Dan B: It's the same mindset that was lampooned in The Emperor's New Clothes. A lot of people would rather go along with a popular lie rather than admit the truth.

  7. This is like me talking about sports!

  8. Two Door Cinema Club are a real band, so a bit unfair to include the guy who "used to spin them" on his local radio show. And in fairness to him he deftly avoided actually saying he played the made up album title she threw him.

  9. "This is like me talking about sports!"

  11. 'Hipsters', trustafarians, etc. being seen at a premier scene event. Certainly there are many grown adult homosexuals into being part of a 'scene' and being seen.

  12. This was clearly an edited piece for the purpose of satire. We never see the reporter asking the questions or naming the bands; the microphone is never held away from the face of the person being interviewed. The fake band names were dubbed in later, probably over real band names.

  13. JonB: I was thinking the same thing...or that they were prepped to say positive things about whatever bands are mentioned.

    Looked a bit fake to me.

  14. As someone who works at the front desk of a hotel that is located right next to both a NFL and a MLB stadium. I do in fact do this with all the sports fans who stay at our property. I have no idea what they are talking about 95% of the time. I just agree with whatever they say. Works every time.

  15. Add me to the sports list. I remember just the sound of baseball coming from the TV, was a kind of hell for a gay 13 year old.

  16. The interviewer's voice is so obviously overdubbed. Are you really all this stupid?

    Posted by: danswon | Apr 23, 2013 9:44:57 PM

  17. Overdubbed? WTF? She's just speaking through a lavalier mic that sounds a little different from the unidirectional microphone used for the interviews.
    I love seeing stupid hipsters taken down a notch. This is delicious.
