Jimmy Kimmel Prank People Beyonce Jay Z Twin Names


Jimmy Kimmel tricked unsuspecting people on Hollywood Boulevard into congratulating Beyonce and Jay Z on the birth of their twins with fake names. Hilariously, a number of people fell for the prank. Check out the video below!

The talk show host introduced the segment on Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” by addressing the baby name rumors. As Gossip Cop reported, neither star has officially confirmed the names of their newborns twins. TMZ, however, recently reported that the babies’ names may have been revealed in new trademark petitions, as Beyonce and Jay Z’s joint company filed paperwork to secure the rights for “Rumi” and “Sir.” Of course, there’s been no official confirmation from the celebrity couple.

The first person to be fooled by Kimmel’s team into thinking Beyonce and Jay Z had named their children Cucumber and Uvula, said, “Uvula? Congratulations so much, you’re very lucky to have two beautiful children, Cucumber and Uvula. I wish you the best of luck.” Another person, convinced the twins’ names are Denver and Omelette, responded with, “Congratulations to you guys. Denver and Omelette, are I’m sure, going to be huge blessings to you.”

And another woman said, “Hey Beyonce, hey Jay Z, congratulations on your new set of twins. Zumba and Zika? Congratulations on Zumba and Zika.” “Pretty names, right?” a member of Kimmel’s team amusingly asked the unsuspecting pedestrian. “Gorgeous, very unique,” she said.

Of course, news of Beyonce and Jay Z’s twins remains to be a hot topic, but some outlets are insisting on fabricating ridiculous stories about the newborns. Just days ago, Gossip Cop called out the often disproven HollywoodLife for purporting to know when Beyonce and Jay Z will “reveal their twins to the world.” Check out the full video of Kimmel pranking people into congratulating the couple on their newborn twins with fake names below!
