Allow Jake Gyllenhaal to show how he earned that Oscar nomination, via this insane Inside Amy Schumer skit he stars in (courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter). A fame-hungry Amy thinks she’s being played by a ferret fanatic claiming to be Jake who’s been messaging her, so she goes on Katfish (à la MTV’s magical reality drama, Catfish). She arrives at his place to out him, only to find it’s really Jake. “Of course, why would I lie?” he told her, referencing his Oscar nomination. “That’s a really cool thing to get….” Click on image for video.
Jake is all about it until he realizes Amy isn’t the ferret enthusiast she claimed to be. And that’s when he has a glorious meltdown while dangling a ferret. “You LIED to me?! F*ck you! F*ck you, Amy! I believed in you!” And it only gets better at the 3:00 mark:
According to Urban Dictionary – “A catfish is someone who pretends to be someone they’re not using Facebook or other social media to create false identities, particularly to pursue deceptive online romances.”
As you can imagine, catfishing is so rampant that you wonder who’s really real ?
