Okay, stay with me here. Yes, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore both buy into that Kabbalah stuff where they think that tying ratty pieces of string around their wrists will ward off evil spirits or whatever. But! Check out what Ashton is up to these days:
Pop Fiction, an eight-episode series, is a prank show targeting paparazzi and gullible media outlets. It’s made with the eager help of stars, who were the laughing stocks of Kutcher’s former MTV show. This time the shoe’s on the other foot, and the series has been kept so tightly under wraps that E!’s own website fell victim to the Hilton hoax and other planted stories that producers won’t yet divulge.
“The Hilton hoax” was a recent gossip item in which Paris Hilton was photographed dining with a “guru,” who has since been revealed to be an actor. Part of Kutcher’s idea here is to make a point about the private lives of celebrities being constantly under attack by the paparazzi. Yeah, okay, that’s a good point I guess. But what really gives me just a small jolt of joy is this quote from Kutcher’s producing partner Jason Goldberg:
“We’re having fun, but we want to say to people, ‘Can you really believe everything you read and see?’ “
I think that’s great! And not to ruin the show for you, but SPOILER ALERT: the answer is, “Nope. Not even that Kabbalah crap.” After the jump, some delicious Kutcher pics for your Saturday morning enjoyment.
Seriously, just forget about the stupid Kabbalah stuff.
And finally some Klassic Kutcher.
