Canadian funnyman Nathan Fielder likes to ask people to do things. Embarrassing things. Awful things. But most importantly, hilarious things.
Starting out writing for Canadian shows like "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" and, oddly enough, "Canadian Idol," Fielder eventually got noticed by Comedy Central, leading him to his own TV show "Nathan For You." The reality TV-parody involves giving small businesses disastrous marketing advice, like convincing a yogurt shop to name a new flavour "poo."
But his latest experiment involved texting, scoring drugs, parents, and social media. On April 24, Fielder tweeted to his followers asking them to text their parents about scoring drugs. When mom and dad responded, Fielder humbly requested that his followers ask their parents to ignore the message.
Experiment: text your parents "got 2 grams for $40" then right after "Sorry ignore that txt. Not for you" Then tweet pic of their response.— nathan fielder (@nathanfielder) April 24, 2013
The results are, to say the least, incredible. Some parents lashed out instantly.
Others were a bit too confused.
This isn’t the first time Fielder has started a mass-Twitter-experiment. On April 20, he tweeted his followers to ask their parents about dollar-store-condom quality.
Experiment: text your dad "Will dollar-store condoms work the same as regular brands?" then reply to this tweet with a pic of his response.— nathan fielder (@nathanfielder) April 20, 2013
Check out the results of both pranks below.
