Jimmy Kimmel has no trouble making a fool out of people on the street, especially when it comes to those who love to smoke weed. They’re easy targets, no doubt, and definitely won’t be chasing you down if you ruin their day. If they attempt it, don’t panic.
Usually, Kimmel only lines up folks on the street and attempts to determine if they are high, but this time he tries something new during his LieWitness News segment. He sends his crew out to Venice Beach to introduce a new edible to folks, only it’s just candy and there is no cannabis involved. This “Incredible Edible” is alleged to hit quick and take effect within five minutes, a fact that many people latch onto as they take a taste and immediately share that they are feeling it.
As Kimmel puts it at the end of the segment, most of these people are just high on life despite some claims that they smoke a “shit load” of weed and even work in a dispensary. That guy actually wants the show to come to sell the candy in their shop, which has to be slightly embarrassing once he finds out that it is just candy.
The worst one is either the old lady who pulls her best Waco Kid from Blazing Saddles to show that the candy has magically made her tremors disappear, or it’s the guy who has no shirt on. We’ll go with the latter, because at least the old lady seems to be handling her health pretty well on the placebo effect.
It is exactly like feeling like you’re drunk after drinking a bunch of non-alcoholic beer or toilet water. Totally normal feelings.
This isn’t as flashy as Kimmel’s last “on the street” segment with some of the superheroes of Hollywood Boulevard. We didn’t have to endure the smells, but we did find out that Jon Stewart is desperate for work.
