Jimmy Kimmel prank pitches iPad mini as iPhone 5S, fools many

Talk-show prankster Jimmy Kimmel is at it again. This time he’s taken his crew to Hollywood Boulevard, where he’s pulling the wool over the eyes of shoppers, leading them to believe that last year’s iPad Mini is in fact the new iPhone 5S, revealed last night.

As a fellow gullible prank victim (long story, my brother once convinced me he was going to be the Foo Fighter’s new guitarist) I can’t be one to point fingers. But when you’ve got people licking tablets as you’ve tricked them into thinking they each come in a different flavour, that’s a whole new level of stupid.

Following Jimmy Kimmel’s “Twerkgate” prank scandal however, there’s a good chance that everyone in this video is a paid actor, so grab that pinch of salt you were saving for tonight’s chips.
