Two YouTubers Tricked Carole Baskin Into Giving An Exclusive Interview – Watch
Ever since Tiger King dropped on Netflix, the world has been obsessed with Carole Baskin, the queen of floral headbands and the Mother Teresa of big cats. While Twitter cannot stop wondering whether Baskin really did murder her husband and fed him to her cats, she has been quite quiet.
And now, Baskin’s first interview since the show released on Netflix has dropped. While she thought she was being interviewed by Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show, she was actually chatting with two YouTubers, Josh Pieters and Archie Manners.
Pieters and Manners wanted to check if they could trick celebs into thinking that they were being interviewed by late-night TV hosts and they did so by using Zoom and audio bites from old clips of the shows.
“Here’s a chance where we could perhaps interview some high-level talent because we are going under the guise of being a really famous show,” Pieters told Insider. “And we thought, why don’t we take a shot in the dark and go for the most exclusive, hard to reach person in the world, with absolutely no hope of it working?”
“I think she (Baskin) did an interview for a local paper in Tampa where she’s from,” Pieters said. “But this was her first worldwide exclusive interview, which is just quite something.”
