If you listen to the podcast How Did This Get Made, you know Jason Mantzoukas is not on Twitter, dum-dums. So why was the criminally hot comedian trending on Twitter this weekend? It’s not because he said something bonkers or did something shady. It’s because someone else did, and brought the Zouks’ name into it.
Plucked from a relationships sub-Reddit, comes this little gem of a tale, where Mantzoukas goes from a hall pass pick to the lure for a catfishing scheme between husband and wife.

Yes, yes, this could well be a lie. Still, that didn’t stop Twitter from going wild over this Mantzoukas tale.

Roaring at including Jason Mantzoukas’s age and gender as if he is an active participant in the story. https://t.co/20BcxNJOxD— Brian Schmid (@SchmanthonyP) September 6, 2020

Whether or not the post is real, that man's biggest mistake was thinking Jason Mantzoukas isn't highly desired by women everywhere. Case in point: pic.twitter.com/ltJz5NOlMW— Jamie Jirak (@JamieCinematics) September 6, 2020

It’s a huge bummer that Mantzoukas isn’t on twitter (or any social media) because I feel like he’d really enjoy this thread. pic.twitter.com/HiKcaGCm64— Kathrynlena (@Kathrynlena) September 6, 2020
if i didn't want my wife to sleep with jason mantzoukas i would simply not tell my wife i was cool with her sleeping with jason mantzoukas and then pretend to be jason mantzoukas trying to sleep with her— gaby hoffmann updates (@HarronWawker) September 7, 2020
Let me be perfectly clear: I have had a crush on Jason Mantzoukas since before it was cool and twitter trendy. The man wears a glasses and sweater well AND cares about Rory Gilmore's terrible life choices. THE TOTAL PACKAGE. pic.twitter.com/PQeHOryAqE— Erin P. (@EMPS88) September 6, 2020
I am laughing so hard I am actually crying. This is so fantastic & I'm so happy this is why Jason is trending. pic.twitter.com/R7N2cv2uXX— Angelina (No My Name's Not) Libby (@anglib78) September 6, 2020
Just saw why Jason Mantzoukas is trending. Imagine that lady going on here and realizing it's because of her.— Amy Kuperinsky (@AmyKup) September 6, 2020
