Jimmy Kimmel Asks SXSW Hipsters About Fake Bands, Gets Detailed Answers
Providing us with a fresh dose of grade-A trolling, comedian Jimmy Kimmel pulled a big one on this year's SXSW visitors, asking the supposed music aficionados to comment about various bands that don't even exist.

Exposing a vast array of hipsters, the show's "Lie Witness News" segment saw the crowd sharing overly positive remarks about such class acts as Neil Patrick Harassment, Willie Nelson Mandela and more.

"Over 2,000 bands are playing SXSW this year - which I think is all of them," Jimmy said during the introduction, just to proceed to the hilarious clip. Make sure to check it out below.

"People who come to music festivals pride themselves on knowing who the new acts are even if they don't actually know who the new acts are," the official description reads. "So we sent a camera crew into the streets of Austin to ask SXSW attendees about bands that do not exist. We made them all up, but that didn't stop people from telling us how much they like them in a special South by Southwest edition of Lie Witness News."
