Punked Amir

Prank Wars is probably my favorite thing on College Humor. (The one where they trick Amir into thinking he's on Human Giant was supreme.) This time, they trick Amir into thinking he won $500,000 for sinking a blindfolded half-court shot.


I was a bit disappointed. After the humiliation of the last three, this didn't really escalate the war. Amir got off easy.

Btw, has anyone called bullshit on these yet? If I were to guess, I think they're real -- but I'm only 80% sure.

I don't know, if it's a straight gag--it's hilarious, and if it's scripted--it's hilarious... either way, it was a lot of fun to watch

(I just turned on 'Around the Horn' on ESPN... they they're talking about it. FTW)

A friend at Connected Ventures tells me everyone at the company knows it's fake. Maybe you can get confirmation from another employee there.
