Fake it ’til you make it?

12/09/2014

Just watched this very funny Jimmy Kimmel video in which a fake reporter goes around to various people at Fashion Week and asks them to discuss designers that don’t exist and events that never occurred. A very entertaining bit but I can’t say I wouldn’t do the same thing if I were in their shoes… well, I sure HOPE I wouldn’t but in their minds, it would have been embarrassing to admit that they have no clue what they’re talking about. Especially on video. How were they supposed to know that the interviewing was feeding them as much BS as they were giving back? Hopefully the people are laughing along with the rest of us and aren’t too embarrassed. Anyway, if you haven’t seen it yet, check it out!

Now BE HONEST, beyond all reasonable doubt, would you definitely not do what these people did? Or might you?

Wiedersehen,

Molly.

    Hi Molly!
    This is such a great and funny video. I had to laugh so hard, but it is sad at the same time. I’d rather be know as the girl that had no clue, than a person that is just fake 😉

    To be hones I wouldn’t even give a interview just because I’m to shy and most definitely to not embarrassing myself for things that I might say like these cool peepz.

    Lol, I watched this last week and thought it was hilarious!
    There some much ego going on with fashion, that most people are just afraid to admit that they might not be familiar with what is “cool” right now.
    Personally I wouldn’t have been able to make something up right on the spot, I kind of would just admit not knowing about something, specially after watching this 😀

    I would honestly not do that. I would say “I don’t know” because it’s impossible to know everything, it’s nothing shameful about admitting you don’t know.

    hmm yeah especially with street style the photographers seem to have a ridiculously good memory for everyone in the fashion industry it’s really intimidating. I am pretty good with names and faces but fashion people it’s a whole other level. But I’m one of those people that can’t fake knowing something even if I wanted to so >.<
