  • The famous episode where Jamie gets the screws put to him by his would-be mark.

    10
    In every hidden camera prank show like "The Jamie Kennedy Experiment", there's bound to be at least one bit that doesn't go off as well as the prankster would like. This happens here, as JK's attempt to "X" fellow WB star Sean Maguire (of another WB series at the time, OffCentre), ends up backfiring.



    Jamie plays an obnoxious costar who attempts to step on Sean's lines. The bit seems to be going well, until Sean flips over the table in frustration. Jamie most likely had not been expecting that, but he keeps on with the bit anyway. Finally, Sean ends the bit by throwing Jamie's famous "You've been X'ed" line back at him.



    In the post-bit interview, Sean reveals that he had recognized Jamie from a JKX promo he had seen the previous night, and started on his reversal when Jamie started on his english ("Hang on! That's a SPECTACULARLY bad English accent!" Sean recalls thinking in the interview).



    Hidden camera pranks are fun, but hidden camera pranks that go wrong, like this, are even better. This reversal of fortune makes this a classic JKX episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In the final skit, the mark's name is Brad. Jamie's "boyfriend" introduces him to Jamie's "wife" as such, but shortly afterwards, she addresses him as "Bart."

    • When Jamie tries to imitate Sean Maguire's accent, he asks if it was a good Australian accent--but Sean Maguire's British. A fellow TV Tome user tells me that Jamie made this "mistake" on purpose to try to agitate Sean; it can be an insult to mistake a British accent for an Australian accent, and by extension, to mistake a Briton for an Australian. Okay, I'll buy that, especially since Jamie was doing everything in his power to be, well, irritating.
