Hahaha pranking the news is excellent!
This guy, one of the founders of the Found Footage Festival (a mashup of the worst of unintentionally-bad found video), decided he was bored with promoting the festival on morning shows, so he decided to have some fun with the media and created this fictional yo-yo pro. Yes there’s such things.
And of course the local news will book him. Show us some tricks, K-Strass!
These guys just made news again by creating a fake cookbook written by a fake chef (Something about remixing leftovers!) and getting booked for full cooking segments, where host after host just went with the disgusting things being prepared. Desperate folks those local media types ;-).
