Remember Chef Keith, the guy who managed to trick five TV news shows into having him on? Well, he’s at it again, this time as half of strongman duo Chop and Steele.
Local morning news shows have a lot of air to fill each day. So when a pair claiming to be an inspirational strongman duo blasted out a press release—citing a nonexistent tour and an America’s Got Talent appearance, and offering no video or documentation—they were immediately booked by seven different shows across the country.
Chop and Steele eventually appeared on three shows, in Eau Claire, Wisc., Bismarck, N.D., and Allentown, Penn., before canceling their other appearances due to being “stressed out.”
In case you’re wondering (I know I would be), only one station ever bothered to question the pair’s credentials. It did so by way of an email…sent the day after they appeared.
