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.

Letter Of Note of the Day: A terse letter penned by Ingmar Bergman in 1960 to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences upon learning that his film, Wild Strawberries, had been nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Original Screenplay category.

It lost to the Rock Hudson/Doris Day romcom Pillow Talk.
