Someone ripped a page outta the Bart Simpson playbook this week to prank an L.A. weatherman … asking for a birthday shout-out for “Hugh Janus” … and it went down PERFECTLY!!!
Ya gotta see this … KTLA anchorman Henry DiCarlo was giving his usual TV shoutouts for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. … when he read the name of a supposed 10-year-old boy named “Hugh Janus.”
That”s when the two anchors LOST IT … instantly realizing DiCarlo had been pranked and laughing their faces off.
Eventually, one of the anchors let DiCarlo in on the joke … “I think it was one of those trick names and you fell for it.”
Once DiCarlo realized he”d been had he admitted, “I got punked” … adding, “Hopefully there”s not a ten year old really with that name out there.”
Yeah, that would really stink.
