We’re still two godforsaken days away from April Fool’s, the most hated day of the year for those of us who work in online publishing. But former 90210 actress Jessica Lowndes already got us good with her viral “prank” earlier this week claiming to be engaged to Jon Lovitz — later revealed to be a publicity stunt for her new music video featuring the comedian.
Lowndes and Lovitz appeared on Tuesday night’s Entertainment Tonight to chat about their hilarious prank, although it’s safe to say Lowndes does most of the talking while Lovitz, dressed in his fanciest pajamas, mostly looks like he wants to crawl into a hole and die. I know you guys will be shocked, but Lowndes says that the entire ruse was her idea, not the seasoned comedian’s. She also says that the engagement ring she posted was just an image she found on Google, despite the fact that she also appears to be wearing something sparkly on the ring finger of her left hand.
When Lovitz does get a chance to speak, he says that “younger women like [him],” and that he was always taught to “speak funny and have a big stick.” We’ll just leave that up to your imaginations to interpret.
