The world needs more couples to show off their teamwork and be an example of how to keep marriage fresh and light…with karaoke!
Jay Leno, also known as, The Chin, used his “Pumpcast News” prank on a couple that will make your day! Will and Monifa Sims were unwittingly watched through what seems like a regular newscast playing over the gas pump in the Candid Camera type prank. Will is humming along and singing to himself when newscaster Tim Stack yells, “You sir, at pump 16 in Burbank.” Will keeps on singing to himself, then Stack tries to get his attention again, “Yeah, the gentleman singing. Really nice singing voice.”
He finally startles Will and gets his attention. He tells him what a nice singing voice he has and asks him to sing a song for him for a tank of gas. Now this prank is usually meant to embarrass the person, but Will was a willing participant. He gets Will to sing Bon Jovi’s “Living on a Prayer.”
Stack: You need the words?
Will: Nah! I know ’em, baby!
Then Will bursts into song while his wife is inside the car laughing her head off and doubling over in stitches from her husband’s routine. When he finishes, Stack asks Will to see if she will do a duet. At first, she’s reluctant and Will says she’s not going to do it. But then, she hops out the car and tells him that she will sing the Eurythmics “Sweet Dreams”. And it’s a show from there! These two are the couple of the year!
They were so good, Jay Leno invited them on his show to sing with his band. Watch Part I and Part II of this classic prank that introduced the world to the most charismatic, fun-loving couple, you ever want to know!
