People are so easily manipulated, and here is 3 videos that shows the “Bandwagon Effect” in action.
This first video is a bit insane. A guy using his real first and middle name and a few staged people led people to believe he was a celebrity resulting in him having a security escort and shutting down stores for him in a matter of minutes.
This second video is almost the same, 2 British presenters go to Japan have a camera crew and a few staged fans result in a mass hysteria. With no one knowing who they are.
This third and final video is a bit different, as the guy looks like a well know celebrity and pranks the whole of Times Square as being Andy Samberg
I wonder if this is doable here in Kuwait? What am I talking about of course it is, people gather around a car crash here why not a make believe celebrity?
Improv Everywhere pulled a really great prank on New Yorkers, having eight sets of quadruplets in a New York park.
Other cool Improv Everywhere projects:
Kazakhstan’s shooting team has been left stunned after a comedy national anthem from the film Borat was played at a medal ceremony at championships in Kuwait instead of the real one.
I don’t know whether to die of laughter or feel ashamed. This is a catastrophe, I have no idea how can you mix those two up unless you were told to Google “Kazakhstan National Anthem” and he mistakenly selected the second video. But brings another question, shouldn’t they have a library of all the national anthems and flags since they are hosting an international event?
The Kazakhstani team has asked for an apology and they really deserve one. The organizers also got the Serbian national anthem wrong according to the Kazakhstani coach.
When you are on the pedestal and the song says:
“Kazakhstan’s prostitutes cleanest in the region” I would take offence.
Just for kicks, here is the full spoof anthem from the movie Borat:
Kazakhstan greatest country in the world. All other countries are run by little girls. Kazakhstan number one exporter of potassium.
Other countries have inferior potassium. Kazakhstan home of Tinshein swimming pool. It’s length thirty meter and width six meter. Filtration system a marvel to behold. It remove 80 percent of human solid waste.
Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan you very nice place. From Plains of Tarashek to Norther fence of Jewtown. Kazakhstan friend of all except Uzbekistan. They very nosey people with bone in their brain.
Kazakhstan industry best in the world. We incented toffee and trouser belt. Kazakhstan’s prostitutes cleanest in the region. Except of course Turkmenistan’s.
Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan you very nice place. From Plains of Tarashek to Norther fence of Jewtown. Come grasp the might phenis of our leader. From junction with the testes to tip of its face!
Or maybe its just Kevin Sorbo the star of the 90′s TV show Hercules: The Legendary Journey. He completely misreads the script. He actually reads the word disappointed, when he was supposed to “sound” disappointed.
For all of you who missed out on the 80’s, this music video gives a general idea on how it like back then. The Karate Rap. Damn, the 80s were weird.

Jimmy Kimmel did a great segmant a few weeks back when he told parents to film their kids telling them that they ate all their halloween candy. This time he asks parents to bring a stupid gift and film them opening it. It was awesome. [Youtube]
