This Dude Had The Biggest Choke Of All Time On '$100,000 Pyramid'

Not everyone does well under stress, and few of us have to endure pressure like a contestant on a game show. Picture it—you’re in front of a live audience of 50 or so people, you’re on camera to be broadcast to millions more, perhaps there’s a celebrity guest…not to mention the fact that there’s usually a huge pile of money on the line.

This has been known to produce some pretty great gaffes and faux-pas in the past, but Evan Kaufman’s appearance on the recent revival of ABC’s '$100,000 Pyramid' is one for the ages.


Yup, he just conflated former Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden with Barack Obama, the former President of the United States. Which, to be fair, is a pretty common comparison made by the alt-right. But Kaufman wasn't trying to make a political statement. Later, in a Twitter thread, he explained that he didn't mean to lump a former president with a former enemy of the state.



Sure, this seems like a pretty reasonable explanation, once put like that, but it might now matter in today's online culture. Where internet trolls are likely to write, "TL;DR, you’re a racist now."

Latest.

Dust off your air guitar, because it looks like that new Bill and Ted movie is finally happening – for real this time. “It looks like we might, actually, hopefully make a movie this summer,” the duo said, trading words in a brief video announcement posted to Twitter on Wednesday. The video features Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter standing before The Hollywood Bowl thanking the fans for their enduring love for the characters.
