Prank of the Day: Guy Pretends He Won an Oscar to Get Free Stuff

It’s encouraging to know that years of hard work as an actor or filmmaker could one day get you a free orange Gatorade.

New Media Rockstars decided to see how people would react to someone carrying a (fake) Oscar around the streets of L.A.

It seemed to work out pretty well for the guy. He ended up getting free movie tickets, food, drinks and was pretty much allowed to go and do whatever he wanted.

“You got an Oscar, thats your ID,” said a bouncer when he tried to get into an exclusive party.

Watch and cringe as everyone tries to take pictures with him and his award despite not knowing who he is or what he “won” it for.

Some people even claim they saw his speech.

Apology of the Day: ‘Drunk Girl in Public’ Sorry for Hoax

While we have already learned that the "Drunk Girl in Public" video was a fake (is anything even real anymore?), now the actress hired to play said drunk girl is also speaking out.

Jennifer Box has released a video apologizing for the stunt Monday, which she says was originally pitched to her as a "lighthearted prank show."

She said she never would have participated if she had known the damaging outcome of the video. But isn't forever being remembered as "that drunk girl in public on Hollywood Boulevard" a good enough reason to turn it down?

The men in the video recently spoke up about the prank to Inside Edition and the mastermind behind the entire debacle, Stephen Zhang, has made the original video private, which had racked up millions of views since it aired.
