Every time one of Jimmy Kimmel’s “Lie Witness News” segments hit the web I wonder to myself WHY these people lie on camera. Are they trying to get on television by intentionally being stupid or are they just afraid of looking dumb when they don’t know the answers to what the camera man is asking them? Personally, I’d probably flat-out admit that I either don’t know the answers to their questions or call them out for trying to fool me with misleading questions.
Yet sure enough, the people behind Jimmy Kimmel Live somehow manage to find enough people stupid/willing enough to give dumb answers that they’re able to make an entire segment about it. To be fair though, sometimes their questions are legit…
…actually, I take that back. Out of all the “Lie Witness News” segments I’m looking at none of them are questions that intelligent people would get wrong. From getting people at SXSW to profess their love for fake bands to asking people what their reaction to Martin Luther King Jr. endorsing Donald Trump for president, the majority of these questions are dumb, dumber and dumbest.
In that case, these people deserve to look like morons. Ugh.
