Jimmy Kimmel is a known prankster (remember the twerking girl who caught herself on fire and went viral?), and while he's in Austin this week for the South by Southwest music festival, he has a rather large audience to pull from when it's time to be mischievous.

The talk-show host decided to make up some hilarious band names and send a "reporter" out into the crowds to ask what they think of their music. The results were pretty funny. Take a look at music lovers trying to describe non-existent female DJ Heavy Flo:

The music festival needed a bit of levity this week after a tragic incident on Wednesday, when a drunk driver careened through two police barriers after being pulled over and drove into a crowd of people, killing two and injuring 23. The driver, 21-year old Rashad Charjuan Owens, was evading police and was reportedly aiming for people rather than trying to avoid hitting them. He faces two charges of capital murder--among others--which means he will be eligible for the death penalty.
