Tracy Morgan may have pulled the prank of his life. Last night at the Primetime Emmy Awards comedian Jimmy Kimmel used social media and fellow comedian Tracy Morgan to pull a prank last night during the Emmy telecast.
Kimmel and Morgan demonstrated that if you get two comedians together on stage you never know what’s going to happen.
It was Kimmel’s first time hosting the Emmy Awards and he promised that he was going to pull an epic prank. So in the midst of the show he asked the people viewing at home to help him pull it off and attract additional viewers at the same time.
He then told Morgan to lie down on the stage. Morgan complied.
“Just lie there for about 10 minutes or so. And when people tune in they will see this on the stage,” Kimmel said.
Ten minutes later, Morgan was still there.
As they returned from a commercial break, Kimmel announced that Morgan was just fine. It was “just exhaustion.”
According to CBS, a Twitter search revealed thousands of tweets involving Morgan’s prank, so apparently it worked.
