As you may recall, Nathan For You star Nathan Fielder did a glorious “Twitter experiment” last week where he told his followers to send their parents a text that said “got 2 grams for $40″ then immediately send another that said “Sorry ignore that txt. Not for you,” and post a screenshot of the replies they got. The results were furious parents and comedy gold. (“F*CK YOU BRIAN.”)
But now that we’ve all had our our laughs about the situation, it’s time to mend some fences. So, over the weekend, Fielder tweeted out a number that his followers could have their parents call so he could set the record straight about the prank.
Well, that was a nice thing for him to do. Or rather, it would have been a nice thing for him to do, if the number didn’t go straight to a voicemail message where he said the following:
“Hi, you’ve reached Nathan. Please leave a message. Oh, and if you’re a parent calling because your kid said that I asked them to pretend to be a drug dealer, I’ve been getting a lot of those calls and I know nothing about that and had nothing to do with it, so they’re probably just using me as an excuse. Okay, thank you!”
Never change, you evil maniac. Never.
