Pauly Shore admits to punch-out hoax
According to him, the entire crowd in the comedy club was in on the joke. He told the members of the audience that the heckling and the fight was going to happen and instructed them to record the whole thing on their cell phone cameras.
In fact, he has a video where he tells the crowd about the scheme and directs them as to what to do. Apparently, he was making fun of the entire viral video phenomenon, calling anyone who picked up on the video and reported on it as fact "irresponsible." He went on to say that "I think you have to check your P's and Q's, so it's almost me making fun of the paparazzi and getting back at them."
Whatever. My advice? Do a better acting job, Pauly. I think most of those "irresponsible" people who picked up the video had an inkling it was fake as soon as they saw it.
