Jimmy Kimmel’s Super Bowl Prank Was a SuccessBy: Chris Richardson - February 8, 2012
While this particular topic was discussed by WebProNews during Super Bowl night, the late night talk show host has supplied us with a “greatest hits” of his prank, where he asked people to unplug their televisions during crucial parts of the Super Bowl.
The reaction to such a drastic move was about what you’d expect, but even though you know it’s coming, the round-up video still manages to be pretty damn funny, because, let’s face it, people don’t like their football-watching being interrupted. Especially during the Super Bowl. The reactions, as indicated, are normally in the vein of a “WTF?” reaction, but for some reason, they don’t get old.
The compilation video leads this post, and if you’d like to see the individual videos, check out Zach’s article from Super Bowl Sunday.
Naturally, the video has enjoyed something of a viral reaction, having already accumulated over 900,000 views since it was posted on Monday (February 6). If you look at the YouTube comments, you’ll find the reaction to the video was largely positive.
There are a quite a few “That was a lot funnier than I expected it to be! Great job!” and “i don’t think i ever laughed so hard in my life!” comments, but, as with every YouTube comments section, there is a nice amount of trolling, as well:
Look at all those sheeple wake up America there are more important things going on right now !
It’s good to see that at least there is something Americans truly care about. Unfortunately, it is not banksters looting the economy and sending jobs overseas, only someone unplugging the TV during the Super Bowl. We are in a lot of trouble.
Sigh. Can’t we all just get along?
