Jimmy Kimmel tricks Coachella attendees into saying they like fake bands, wins the Internet


This is the stuff that viral video dreams are made of.

Jimmy Kimmel sent his popular "Lie Witness News" segment from "Jimmy Kimmel Live" down to the Coachella Music Festival during its two weekend run and interviewed hipsters as they were on their way in, gauging their excitement on a list of made-up band names. The amount of excitement over The Chelsea Clintons, "straight out of Williamsburg," is incredible. They "give off good energy," one girl claims in the clip, which aired Monday night (April 22).

One guy admits to loving The Obesity Epidemic's "whole style, their whole genre ... They're very innovative and they're new."

Also, Two Door Cinema Club is a real band, but their album "DJ Cornmeal" is definitely not.

To write too much more would spoil the joy of the video. Be sure to watch the clip above.
