Hilarious! Watch Jimmy Kimmel Prank Too-Cool Coachella Attendees

The late-night host sent his Lie Witness News team to the music festival, where fake bands are just as hip as real ones!

Dozens of bands, from majors acts to up-and-comers, play the Coachella music festival every year, and it's hard for each of the thousands of people attending to know every one. But some festival-goers simply aren't willing to admit that they're not as knowledgeable as other people out there. Jimmy Kimmel sent his Lie Witness News team out to Indio, Calif., to ask Coachella attendees what they think about bands like Doctor Schlomo and the G.I. Clinic and Shorty Jizzle and the Plumber Cracks -- and you'd be surprised by how many people are obsessed with those 100 percent fake bands. Watch the clip!

But this isn't the first time Kimmel has pranked unsuspecting passersby who are willing to lie to be on camera. Here are some of our favorite installments of Lie Witness News.

Did You Watch The Super Bowl?

Kimmel sent his correspondents to Hollywood Boulevard to ask people what they thought of the big game. The only problem? It hadn't happened yet.

What Did You Think of the Inauguration Day Ceremonies?

Ah, Inauguration Day: A time to consider the possibilities for our nation -- or make stuff up. Kimmel's team asked what people thought of Obama's swearing-in for a second term, even though it hadn't yet taken place.  It's amazing how intricate people got with their lies to make it seem like they actually knew what was going on. It brings a tear to our eyes.

What Do You Think Of The New Pope?

The Pope hadn't been selected when Kimmel sent a reporter onto the streets of L.A., but people still had plenty of opinions about him -- including thoughts on his ex-wife. Did you know he is also Jewish?
 

What Did You Think Of The Oscars?

Those interviewed about the 2013 Academy Awards didn't know many details about the awards show, which is likely because the ceremony hadn't happened yet. Watch one guy squirm when asked who won best picture, his favorite event of the night.
 


Did You See The Asteroid?

Does an asteroid actually need to fly through the sky for people to talk about seeing it? Absolutely not, but the lengths to which people went to seem like they were in the know are hysterical.
