Jimmy Kimmel Tricks People Into Thinking Kid Rock Wins Senate Race

Jimmy Kimmel Live! in Los Angeles Oct. 11 2018

The late-night host sent a camera crew to the streets of Hollywood to prank unsuspecting pedestrians for a special "Kid Rock the Vote" edition of his "Lie Witness News" segment. In yet another edition of "Lie Witness News" focused on the 2018 midterm elections, Jimmy Kimmel sent his team out to the street to convince random passerby that the people of MI elected Kid Rock to the U.S. Senate on Tuesday.

Kimmel's team went all out for the stunt. They even used footage from a Kid Rock concert and told people it was his victory speech. And many were less than happy to hear about his (spoof) policies, such as legalizing crystal meth for medicinal use and lowering the age of buying scratch-off tickets to 10.

Watch the full clip below.

"Senator Buddy Humpson, I'm disgusted and appalled that you won", a person said after being told that was Rock's birth name (it's Robert James Ritchie).
