before i go to bed – i just heard about this stunt pulled by two australian morning talk show personalities while in the states covering the oscars – kyle & jackie o. made a late night run this past monday evening to burger king and a donut shop in a black escalade with their show’s producer georgie in the back under a blanket pretending to be troubled pop star britney spears (complete with a pink wig) and a bunch of paparazzi fell for the trickery – following them for almost three hours! even the police got involved by pulling over the paps along with everyone else on the sunset strip to let ms. spears through! even some britney fansites ran some of the footage (posted below) thinking it was real but alas it was all a clever ozzie prank – it certainly didn’t take much at all to fool the photographers…or the cops! popbytes over & out – xxoo!
