How do I get my crush to like me?

Parody pranksters Stuntbear managed to wangle themselves a spot amongst the reporters on the red carpet at last night’s Aria awards, but of course it was never going to be a straightforward interview.

Instead of the usual inane questions about fans, new albums and whether the stars hope to win, the pair dressed in tweed with colourful decorative corsages and posed as a pair of virgins, fumbling their way through a series of interviews with artists like Alicia Keys, Claire Bowditch, Birds of Tokyo and Gossling.

The most cringe-worthy moment comes as they stutter over a question for Harrison Craig, who himself suffers with a stutter.

Another comes when they ask Keys: “So you have worked with global stars like Bono, Jay-Z and President Barack Obama – how do I get my crush to like me?”

  4. Is a parody prankster a parody of a prankster?
    They are as unimpressive as their clothes.
    I’m embarrassed for them and for mumbrella for giving them exposure.

  6. That was great! Oh my gosh the awkwardness. So glad I didn’t hear a single question spruiking a new single.

  8. These talent less prats are being given exposure, why?
    Perhaps this is some sort of Sydney based humour that the rest of the Nation is yet to turn on to.
    But thank you for bringing then to my attention and I’ll be sure to avoid their almost inevitable ABC2 series, coming soon to a Wednesday night in 2014.

  12. we seem to have entered an age where so much ill conceived and shapeless amateurism is allowed to pass for entertainment, drama, comedy and even art.

  14. Is our age much different than any other? Didnt the Romans enjoy the gladiators?

  16. Oh hurrah!! Well said Richard Moss! Pretty much all reality shows continue to drive this “ill conceived and shapeless amateurism” as evinced by the Big Brother winner’s stretched 15 minutes of “fame”.
