JIMMY KIMMEL Pranks People With KID ROCK Senate "Win": Loudwire

Jimmy Kimmel convinced people that Kid Rock won a seat in the Senate on the latest edition of his feature “Lie Witness News”. In the video, a camera crew on the street tells people that Kid Rock won a Michigan senate seat in a "special election” - and several people fell for it. Kimmel’s team even goes so far as to show people clips from his “victory speech,” which is just footage from one of his concerts. Last year Kid Rock did announce that he was running for Senate, but it turned out to be a publicity stunt.

There were so many races in the midterm election today and if you're interested in politics you pay attention, but not everyone is. Last year, you may recall Kid Rock announced he was running for the Senate and, of course, it turned out to be a publicity stunt.

A PERFECT CIRCLE Unveil New Video:

A video for A Perfect Circle’s new single premiered today. The song is called "So Long, and Thanks For All The Fish", a nod to Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. The black and white surrealist clip features flying dolphins, dollar bills raining from the sky and other bizarre scenes, all culminating in nuclear annihilation of the whole world. Singer Maynard James Keenan’s only comment on the video was “Welcome to the new normal.”
