Jimmy Kimmel pranks people with fake Kanye West shoes

Posted on

ABC

There are few people Jimmy Kimmel seems to enjoy making fun of more than Kanye West. He got a new opportunity this week with the release of West’s new shoes, the Yeezy Boost 750 Chocolate. Kimmel constructed his own pair of Yeezy’s (by buying a cheap pair of shoes and gluing on fur and a compass) and then took them to the streets to get people’s thoughts.

“I need me a pair of these,” one pedestrian said. “It’s got the compass right here, so you letting them know right where you walking at. They won’t see you coming at all.”

“I feel like I would be able to jump higher in these,” someone else said.

Kimmel’s team also told people that the shoe’s fur was cloned from Kim Kardashian’s hair, that the laces were edible, and that for each pair sold, West will plant a tree in Israel. None of these fake facts really seemed to shake anyone. They all expressed admiration for the shoes. 

“Love you Kanye! Love your shoes! Keep planting trees in Israel!” One bystander said.
