Kids At Coachella Lie About Digging Fake Bands, Jimmy Kimmel Again Proves He Is An Evil Genius

On the one hand, I kind of feel bad because this is far from the first time stupid young people have lied about shit just to feel cool. I’m fairly certain that I did it back when I cared about such things.

But on the other hand, if we can’t laugh at the missteps of our youth, then what the hell’s the point of getting older? And it’s in that spirit that Jimmy Kimmel, bless his heart, sent a correspondent to Coachella, the giant three-day hipster/hippie fest where people listen to music, do a mess of drugs and don’t bathe or make good choices. And that correspondent interviewed a bunch of goofy-ass kids (and a couple of adults, sadly) and peppered them with fake band names in an effort to get them to show that they’re goofy-ass kids who’ll lie about obscure bands in order to sound cool.

Which the kids did, in spades. Chances are, making up the band names was the best part — as we already know, it’s a favorite activity of ours ‘round these parts.

So here you go. You’ll wince a little, but it’s worth it.
