The hidden camera show format has been around for decades, since people first recognized there were cameras and also places to hide them. And, over this time, we as a culture have come to realize what works and what doesn’t. Too often, shows focus on the silly pranks they get people to do. But that’s missing the point! Obviously, the best part is when someone pops out and says “We got you!” Fortunately, the folks at someecards have created a new show in which that happens. And that’s it.
Basically, this is the kind of gloriously stupid parody I love. Scott Rogowsky walks up to people, tells them they’ve been “got” and points to the camera. They ask what they were “got” doing. He just smiles. Occasionally, he tells them their entire lives up until this point have been a prank show.
Whoa. Allen Funt never thought of that.
…or did he? Wait. Allen, are you watching right now? Is this part of it? Is this post part of it? Are we all part of it?
Look, just watch the video.
