Episode 2.12 - How We Hoaxed The One Show with Zac and Jay (and Louis Theroux)

Last week, Louis Theroux was a guest on The One Show, where he was introduced to two super-fans who explained they staged massive parties themed around Louis Theroux.

Only there aren't any massive parties. And they weren't super-fans.

They were YouTubers Zac and Jay and the whole thing was a hoax.

And it was so convincing, even our cynical minds at The The One Show Show fell for it. So who better to explain what it's like to go backstage at The One Show (expressly to play a prank on it) than the two hoaxers themselves: Zac Alsop and Jamie Rawsthorne!

This is a special episode finding out the inner workings of The One Show, what Ore is like when the cameras aren't rolling, and just how easy it is to fool the nation's least favourite prime-time show. Cue the trumpets (please don't prank the One Show by now playing trombones.)

Zac and Jay's YouTube video of their One Show experience is here:
