Jimmy Kimmel Gets Coachella Goers to Embarrass Themselves


By now you have probably seen the video of Jimmy Kimmel and his ‘Lie Witness News’ crew getting Coachella goers to embarrass themselves by asking them about bands that don;t really exist. “These bands are so obscure that they don’t even exists” quips the late night show host.

Bands such as the Chelsea Clintons, the Obesity Epidemic, Regis & the Philbins and Dr. Shlohmo & the G.I. Clinic made the make-believe list. Check out the funniness down below.

So the story goes, if someone asks about something you have no idea about, just nod your head and move away, or else you might end up like these people.
