This is just your run-of-the-mill, boring local newsy report about Miley Cyrus fans camping out outside her book signing in NYC this week, until it suddenly becomes about an adult man from Georgia who thinks Miley is communicating to him through paparazzi pictures. It would be really funny if it was a UCB-type Today Show audience prank, but it doesn’t appear to be a prank at all.
At the 1:10 mark. It’s worth skipping to it:
Obviously someone at the Daily News thought this was funny. To be clear, the person being made fun of here is the legit news organization who made the choice to put this up, not anyone in need of psychiatric care. (That said, there’s definitely a Mr. Show sketch quality to this video. And also he reminds me of Zach Galifianakis’s twin “brother” Seth.) (Thanks to Brad for the tip.)
