Fakin’ It: Jimmy Kimmel’s Lie Witness News Hits NY Fashion Week

Hot for the designs of Antonin Scalia? Chandler Bing? Be honest now or you will get caught!

Every major event has its share of wannabes, and Lincoln Center is surely not immune as Jimmy Kimmel’s Lie Witness News was on the scene reporting. For those not familiar, Lie Witness News is the sketch segment where faux “news reporters” interview passersby on the streets feeding them false information to see how far they will go to pretend they know what they are talking about.

NY Fashion Week is no longer immune as Kimmel’s crew asks about designers such as “Chandler Bing” (the name of a character on the hit show “Friends”), Betsy Ross (the historical figure responsible for the United States’ first flag) and a few more. Watch as these would-be fashionistas gush about the wonders of these “designers” in this segment.

Chalk this up to a new thing we will call “Fashionista-Shaming” and try not to hurt yourself laughing.
