Talk about faking it.

There’s a video making the rounds of a guy supposedly caught watching porn in class. He “forgot” to plug in his headphones, so the exaggerated moans of the performers can be heard echoing through the lecture hall. Oops! Hilarity ensues because it’s so embarrassing, and he has to rush out in a hurry. It’s a total riot. Except for the fact that it’s totally phony.

The clip that’s circulating from DailyPicksandFlicks looks like it’s originally from a YouTube channel called Pranks Tube. Here’s the source video, which includes in a slew of other tacky mischief.

Some thoughts: First of all, if you’re watching porn in public, you always triple check that your headphones are plugged in. Everyone knows that. Also, wouldn’t the people behind this dude see the video on his screen? Unless he had it minimized and was just listening to the porn, which would make the headphone check even more imperative. And if he was truly listening to purely audio porn, why would he skip to all the moaning? Any aurally stimulating porn requires exposition, character development, and plot before we launch into the sounds of sexual rutting.

So, yeah, not real. Very bogus. Total sham. And this dude’s other pranks are equally bad. He’s the type of view-thirsty YouTuber who approaches a girl and kisses her while she’s unaware that she’s being filmed. You do have to hand it to the guy for duping several other media outlets, but then again, that’s only gotten easier
