Jimmy Kimmel Tricks SXSW Hipsters into Raving About Bands That Don't Exist: VIDEO


In a new edition of 'Lie Witness News' Jimmy Kimmel gets people at SXSW to enthuse about bands that don't exist - such as Contact Dermatitis, DJ Metamucil, Neil Patrick Harassment, WTF Bruce Jenner, DJ Heavy Flow, DJ Costco, Hannah and the Baby Bjorns, DJ Cornmeal, I'm Not Done with the Salad, Willie Nelson Mandela, and Tonya and the Hardings and their album "Sorry About That Nancy".

It's a trick he played at Coachella, but the hipsters are no less gullible in Austin.

  1. The only thing more cringeworthy than pretending to like a band you've never heard of is pretending to dislike one. That guy was the ultimate hipster.

  3. Disgusting. They're all liars, straight up.

  4. Liars always say, to be honest & I'm not gonna lie. They often precede a statement by posing a question which the reporter hasn't actually asked them. Rob Ford does that all the time. I get such a kick out of that.

  5. It's beginning to be a bit painful to watch these.

    As for the bath on stage bit, Prince did something similar during the Purple Rain tour, you know, like, way back in the 80's when most of these fakers weren't even around.

  6. I watched the last one and it was really obvious that the voice asking about bands had been overdubbed in a recording studio to make these people look stupid. I assume it's probably the same with this one.

  7. Also, stop referring to ALL young people as hipsters. It just makes you sound bitter and old.

  8. Danswon, they can't do that. These people consent to appearing on camera. If they were edited to appear stupid, they would have grounds to file lawsuits. Besides the audio sounds perfectly normal considering the questioner and interviewees are using different mics.
    (This is the usual protocol: they just record you saying "I agree to be interviewed". A reporter once stuck a camera in my face at a station to ask about Amtrak security measures after 9/11. "Can we interview you for the news". My answer was "definitely not". This is why on certain reality shows, you will see some incidental people's faces blurred out. The faces that are not blurred out are the ones who granted permission to appear.)

  9. People will say anything to be on TV

  10. Sorry about that, Nancy.
    DJ Metamucil!

    I LOL'd at both of those.
